  • 3. Hidden objects
    Is there a program to remove hidden objects in PPT (2003 Windows XP) I'm using the draw tool to create a white box (no lines) to cover up some unwanted parts in a picture. When I print the page, the outline of the white box (the lines) appear. The box does not show up, just the lines. When viewed on the screen, the box and lines do not appear. When printed, the lines show up. I'm guessing these lines are a hidden object? Any ideas? -- Rich
  • 4. Picture Editing
    I used to be pro with this PowerPoint, lol, but I completely forget how to use a lot of useful tools. I remember there was a way so that I could make a picture fade, b&w or even just have it cut a certain way, such as a star or spiral. If this question makes no sense I apologize. I know of other ways to create this effect but I forget the most efficient. Please give me step-by-step directions. Thanks
  • 5. How do I get Microsoft Word incorporated onto my presentation?
    I am creating a resume on PowerPoint. I also want to give the employer the option of being able to click on the Microsoft Word icon and bring up the word document of my resume as well. In PowerPoint, I go to "Insert", then "Object". Next I choose Microsoft Word Document and check the box to view as an icon. When I run the slide show, I'm able to pull the document up and view it only because the word document is saved on my hard drive. How can I get the word document permanently installed onto PowerPoint so it can be viewed by everyone as a work doc when the icon is clicked on?

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?
