  • 4. Expanding Object in PowerPoint
    Please help. What I am asking is how to keep the Grow & Shrink Effect open after it grew until I click for it to reduce back to its previous size. Using the reverse check box simply returns the full grown object back to its previous size. Un-checking the Reverse check box keeps the grow open to the size it grew but does not reduce to the previous size which I need. Another words, grow to the designated size, stay that size until I click, and then reduce back to its normal size. This is what I am trying to accomplish. Can you help? The problem is simply getting the expanded object back to its previous size after I click. John Wilson, Thank you for your responses to this point. cwl

Presentation has different layout on different computers

I've created a presentation w/PPT 2000 on my desktop and I've copied it to a 
laptop. When I run the presentation some of my slides don't layout properly, 
either the text is overlapping each other or has dropped down to another 
line. Both computers are using the same resolution. Any ideas?

Hi there

Just a thought but it could be a missing font issue - if a computer doesn't 
have the specified font in the presentation it replaces it with arial or 
times new roman (for sans serif & serif fonts respectively) and that can 
cause all sorts of formatting issues due to font sizes not being equivalent.

You can embed True type fonts (tools -> options -> save -> embed true type 
fonts) but it explodes the size of the presentation which may or may not be 
an issue for you.

If this isn the issue could you let us know what is installed on the other 
PC you mention you created the ppt in 2000 but not what was installed on 
the laptop

Lucy's almost certainly right ... it almost has to be a missing font problem 
(that is, the presentation uses a font that isn't present on the laptop, so PPT 
substitutes a different font, and that throws your layout off).

Open the presentation on the laptop, choose Format, Replace Fonts.

In the UPPER listbox, you'll see all of the fonts the presentation needs.  Any 
of them with question mark icons are fonts that are missing.

Find them on your desktop and install on your laptop and you should be good to 
go.

1.PowerPoint opening in a different font on different computers

Version: 2008
Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard)

I am creating a PowerPoint presentation template to be used on both PC & Mac. Not sure why the font changes when it is opened on a computer that doesn't have that font loaded on it. It doesn't seem to be a Mac/PC issue because it open fine on both computers if that font is loaded. Is there a way to embed the font?

5.sync same PP presentation on different computers

Does anybody know of functionality built in PP or thrid party software
that can sync the same PP presentations between two computers in
different locations?   (Computer are connected to the same network.)

I have the feeling that I'll need to write a VBA or script to do this
but I'm hoping that someone has a solution.

Thank you,
Jonny
