  • 1. can no longer import web images
    For four years I've had my 3rd graders design science presentations,etc. I taught them to copy/paste, save in My pictures, and drag photo across screen. This year I've run into problems importing photos from the internet. Can't understand why. The first time I encountered the problem was in our lab. I thought perhaps it was because we had upgraded to PPt 2003, and there was a trick I didn't know. Then, I thought that my upgrade of AOL and new machine at home was the problem. ( At home I have 2000). If I hit Save as, I no longer have choice of Jpeg- just bitmap or Art. No matter which I select, the image doesn't appear in My pictures. If I copy/ paste, it appears to be transferring, but nothing happens. If I try dragging screen to screen, it gives semblance of transferring, but nothing appears. Am I losing my mind?

  • 3. Find total time of PPT show without manually adding each slide?
    Is there a place in PPT that you can find the total amount of time of your show? I don't want to have to manually add up the seconds of each slide, to get the total time. I've looked under "File> Properties" and everywhere else I can think of, but am coming up empty. Thanks for any help anyone can provide! :)
  • 4. Powerpoint file size keeps growing
    If I save a powerpoint file to a different file than the file I'm currently working on, the new powerpoint file becomes much smaller. For example on a recent powerpoint file I'm working on the file size is 24MB. If I save the file to a new powerpoint file the file size becomes 15MB. So why is it that the original file cannot reduce it's own size? Was this method of saving changes implemented so that the save/creation time could be greatly reduced especially for large files?

    I made a Christmas slide show of my pictures. Powerpoint Windows xp. All the E-mails recieved the slide show but the sound didn't come through. Can you tell me how I can send the slide show without the sound missing for the show?

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?
