  • 1. Can I save a PowerPoint Presentation onto a DVD so that it could .
    I have a PowerPoint Presentation of pictures and music for my parents 40th anniversary, they would like to be able to view it on their television set, rather than the computer. Is it possible to copy it to a DVD in some kind of video format so that it will play on a T.V.
  • 2. Web PAges not animating
    I have created some PP animated slides and published them as htm web pages. I then have them linked in Frontpage and published the entire web site. Some machines can access the animations and they run fine. Other's can not. The animations and slides do not appear correctly and do not run. I published the pages for IE5.0 and checked the show animations. One test machine has IE6.01 and it will not run on that machine. It seems it looks for Powerpoint on the local machine, which I don't want. I wnat everyone to be able to use the page with animations. Any plug-in or other item they may be missing?
  • 3. Sorry I'll miss you this year... :-(
    Hi all! For those of you attending PPTLive 2004 here in sunny San Diego...... As you start your fabulous week full of the wondrous adventures of PowerPoint, and the great fun of Rick Altman and his super group of Presenters and staff, at my most favorite hotel in the world, the Doubletree, I truly wish I could be there to enjoy it with you. However, this week I will be relocating to the other coast, from San Diego to Warrenton, VA, thus, I will not be able to attend the conference this year. I just want to say hello to all my friends and PPT buds, and hope you have a great time here at the conference. I hope to see you all next year when we meet for PPTLive 2005! Cheers to all! Jan :) Smiles were meant to be shared, that's why they're so contagious.

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?
