  • 4. Notes not showing in presenter view (Similar to previous post)
    I'm using PowerPoint 2003. I am customizing a presentation by adding notes to a presentation created by someone else. In reviewing the presentation in Presenter View, I have noticed that some speaker notes do not appear. When I look in normal view, they are there, but in Presenter View they are gone. I read a similar post from 2008 and the poster had identified a problem where slide numbers appeared in the place of the note when in presenter view. Curiously, my problem seems to start with a slide that has the slide number where the speaker notes should be. When I go to Note View, as the poster sugggested, I do not see the page number listed (as she did), only the notes that I typed. But when I go to Presenter View, the notes are not there, only the slide number. After a few of those sldies, there is nothing in the Speaker Notes section, not even slide numbers. Pages and pages of speaker notes don't show up. Please help ASAP!

Dear Friends

I'm writing to ask for your assistance with completing a PP presentation; 
I'm more than happy to pay you for your time.

I've put together a 20-slide show of pictures and quotes, currently at 2.8Mb 
although could probably be reduced further in size. I now want to set this 
to music with a 3:38 minute track from a Hayley Westenra CD - I've written 
to ask for copyright permission. I've taken the sound track from the CD with 
Windows Media Player, and then converted it from a WMA file to an MP3 file 
with WMAConvert. Using different compression settings, I've ended up with 
two versions, one at 3.16Mb, the other at 876k.

Since I want to be able to email the finished product, I've converted these 
two files to RIFF-WAV files, using CDex, so that I can embed the audio track 
into the .pps file. This is where I've run into a problem: although both 
files play perfectly well on their own, when I insert them into the .ppt 
file, I seem to be getting distortion on their time track. The 876k file 
stops playing halfway through the slide show; the 3.16Mb file cuts off 
abruptly 7 seconds before the end, which means I lose the nice long fade 
into the final slide, which spoils the whole effect. Also, clearly, I would 
prefer to use the smaller file, if possible, to keep the overall file size 
to a minimum.

Can you very kindly tell me how to do this, or do it for me and bill me for 
your time? Either way, I would be most grateful for your assistance.

Many thanks and kind regards, Robin Scott

1.Can I remove embedded sound files from my PowerPoint presentation

I'm using .wav files as background music for my PowerPoint presentation, but 
I've had to edit them several times to fit the presentation correctly.  Each 
time I remove the old file and add the new one, the old file isn't really 
deleting, so my file keeps growing.  My 30MB presentation is now 270MB.  The 
only way I have to fix it is to start a new presentation and move all the 
slides over.

2.How to separate embedded sounds from presentation?


easy question for somebody (I hope).....

Is it possible to separate embedded sounds from a presentation and save them 
as their own file. (This might be used if the original sound file has been 
accidentally deleted).

Hope one of you knows how to do this.

Thanks in advance,
