  • 1. How do you make multiple slides with connected information on anot
    I was given two slides from a powerpoint presentation and asked to make multiple slides with the information from each of the already completed slides. What I currently have is 2 slides that have already been constructed. Each of those slides are composed of a triangle sectioned off with text centered in each of the sections. Then, to the side of each section is a paragraph of text explaining the verbage within each section. What I have been asked to do is take the bottom section and put into it's own slide, then I need to take the bottom section as well as the section up from that and put into another section, repeating this process all the way up until the triangle is complete. My delimma is that I have not a clue how to begin. Please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 3. "16:9" format
    This has probably been asked and answered a great number of times but is PPT slated to output a true wide screen format anytime soon? I know you can set up the page for 16:9 but the output is still 4:3 and you have to overshoot if you're projecting or send the signal through a scan converter.

  • 4. Music in Slideshow
    I have prepared a slide show, with music attached, but when I email it as an attachment, the music won't play? What do I do? Do I need to send the actual music clip with the slideshow?
  • 5. Resetting a slide, but with slide show set for certain slides only...
    I have a 68-slide slideshow, of which the first 13 slides make up the show, and they contain action settings that hyperlink to the remaining slides (hyperlinks to a specific subject on different slide), and the hyperlinked slides contain animation, and then go back to the previous slide (1 to 13). I am unable to reset the slides once they have played. I tried inserting a blank slide before a slide (no transition, advance slide automatically after 0 seconds), and hyperlinking to that slide, but it automatically goes back to the previous slide from where I clicked, because the next slide is not part of the slide show (the slide show is set to show slides 1 to 13 only, therefore it doesn't go to anything else after 13 unless it is hyperlinked). I also tried using a macro (resetSlide), but what that does is, it doesn't play the animation at all on my slide. I must be doing something wrong with the macro, but I don't know what exactly. Does anyone know how to do this? Thank you.

I don't think there is any adjustment in PPT 2007 to make the elbow arrow 
connector round. Alternatives I feel is to use curve arrow connector or 
freeform and edit points which you want to.

1.Round Corners on Block Arrow AutoShape


I want to be able to have round corners (RCs) on a particular AutoShape. The 
shape i want RCs on can be found by clicking 'AutoShapes'... 'Block 
Arrows'... 'Pentagon'.

If AutoShape cannot be edited, can a 'Custom AutoShape' be created?

So far I have tried to create a shape in Adobe Illustrator and export as 
EMF/WMF, but as you would presume... when horzitonal resize the arrow head 
does not stay the same (it streches) and the stroke on shape stretches.

Any help greatly appreciated.

2.Manually controlling elbows in elbow connectors

Version: 2008
Operating System: Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard)
Processor: Intel

I'm trying to draw a chart with connected boxes and need to be able to manually route the elbow connectors. <br><br>Sometimes when I add a connector or move a box, the connector automatically adds an additional elbow (the little yellow control point), but I can't find a way to add one manually. <br><br>So at the moment I have connectors deciding their own routing and going straight across boxes rather than around them. <br><br>I'm hoping there's a simple answer, but it's driving me nuts trying to find it - can anyone help please? <br><br>Regards, Brian

3.Elbow Connectors in PowerPoint 2007

I was wondering if someone knows of a workaround for the following problem 
with PowerPoint 2007:

If you place two autoshape rectangles so that one is on the left of the 
other and then you put an elbow connector from the left side of the one on 
the right to the left side of the one on the left, the connector goes around 
the left rectangle. This is good.

If instead of the left rectangle, you use some of the other shapes, for 
example the vertical scroll auotshape or a freeform, then the connector goes 
through (!) the shape.

Of course you can manually adjust the conector, but then if you move 
something, it goes right back through the shape.

The same problem also occurs with curved connectors.

Any suggestions?

4.Add control points to straight elbow connector?


I have three boxes along a horizontal line and need to have an arrow going 
from the right side of box 1 to the left side of box 3--preferably not going 
straight through box 2! Is there any way to get control points to show up on 
the elbow connector? 

The elbow (or curve) connector degenerates to a straight line with no 
control points when i connect the two boxes. 

Any ideas?

Tx in advance. 

5.Freeforms and elbow connectors

In PowerPoint 2003 you could use elbow connectors with freeform shapes and it 
would work as with any other shape. In PowerPoint 2007, the default route 
chosen for an elbow connector to a freeform always seems to come from the 
right, often going right through the shape! Is there any way to get it to 
work as it does in 2003?
