  • 1. Making the default monitor my secondary.
    Hi, my church uses powerpoint to project songs on a huge screen. right now we have about 200 songs typed up in powerpoint. Is there a way that I can have it so that default monitor is the secondary(projector)? because right now..before every song I have to hurry up and go to Slide Show>Set up Show> (and select the secondary monitor.......AND THEN PLAY THE PRESENTATION. That is a hassle, and a lot of times they start singing before I get a chance to display it. I hope there is way for this, or a way to batch conver each file to have the sec monitor checked. Also OFF TOPIC: is there a way that I can convert the 200 songs from ppt to pps all at once? thx
  • 2. Loss of animation
    Hello everybody, merry Christmas to you all. Can some helpful body help with the following 2 points 1. working in normal view slide design with two or three animation sequences listed in the opened custom animation panel , everything goes according to plan when the play button is selected. However, when the slide show is run none of the sequences occur. The entire slide appears as one. The slide object sequence times are less than the slide times so there is ample time for the sequences to happen before the slide progresses. How can the slide show be figured to run correctly 2. is there somewhere a star-burst fireworks animation ,finally filling the screen, can be obtained? Regards Kenneth

1.WAV or MP3 Sound Files Won't Play In PPT 2007

I've been inserting wav and mp3 sound files which I have saved in the same 
folder as my presentation but they won't play. I have set the file size to 
50,000 kbs, and have tried every other suggestion on this discussion group 
site. I must say that I have been successful in getting a few wav files to 
play, but these were just practice files and not the ones I need for my 
I'm willing to do whatever it takes to get this project completed, but after 
15 hours of frustrating attempts to make these sound files work, I really 
need help.

Just for reference, here's the name of one of the sound files I'm trying to 

"Z:\_1 1 1 2 RUSTY\___1 RUSTY'S PUBLIC TALKS\Carson City Historical 
Society\Favorite Forms of Entertainment During Glory Years of the Carson 
Mint\PowerPoint\02 - We Sail The Ocean Blue from H.M.S. Pinafore.wav"




I have inserted some custom wav files in a powerpoint presentation.  
Everything appears to be working properly but the sound does not plan.  I 
can't hear it if I right click on the icon and press Play Sound or if I run 
the presentation.

I can get standard Microsoft Wav files to play and my wav files play fine in 
Windows Media Player.  But these wav files will not work in a presentation.

Anty ideas.


3.Won't play wav file larger than 1,000 kb

As an addendum to my post below about sound issues, further investigation 
shows I can insert a sound file as long as it is less than one megabyte. If I 
add a sound file any largerthan that it just does not play. I verified this 
by starting with a 5mb sound file (which would not play) and repeatedly 
editing it and trying it again. Once the file got smaller than 1 mb, it would 
work perfectly.

As I said in my earlier post, this is a new problem. Presentations I 
previously created with large wav files, which played perfectly on my system, 
no longer play sound. I have not changed any system system settings or 
PowerPoint options that I'm aware of. It is definitely not a file corruption 
issue because any of these files plays normally on another computer.

4.Edited wav file won't play.

I've edited a wav file to fade at the end and have saved 
the new file using the exact same settings as the 
original. I have no problem playing the original file in 
PPT 2003, but the edited file won't play. Any advice?

5.Music file won't play through more than one file

I can't figure out how to get my inserted music file to play through more 
than one slide on PowerPoint 2004 as it did in v.X. Does anyone know how 
to make this happen in this version?
