  • 1. Circular diagram using block arrows (2007)
    I'm trying to create a diagram using six block circular arrows. After manipulating the yellow arrows on the shape, I can't get the thickness I need to insert legible text without losing the arrow head itself. Any suggestions? thanks
  • 2. Linked Excel sheets display incorrectly when animated
    When I link to and Excel worksheet, the text displays as expected in the edit mode. Also, if I run a slide show containing such linked objects the text looks fine. The problem comes in when I try and animate any one linked Excel object. As soon as I do that all inked spreadsheets display with an extra black border (shadow?) added around the text. This garbles the look of the display, for one thing, but it also causes other types of damage. One example is that I have some text in Excel conditionally formatted to become 'white-on-white' under certain situations. That works, but when any Excel object on a slide is animated, this text appears with a black 'stencil' edge around the otherwise invisible text. Any way to stop this behavior other than to not animate any Excel objects?
  • 3. Snap to guide
    Does anyone know if it is possible to snap to guide (not grid) in Powerpoint 2007? I used this command a lot in ver 2003, to align columns of objects. In 2007, the only option I can find is to snap to grid.
  • 4. animated bars for powerpoint chart
    hi all- this is a excel/powerpoint question really. I have a very simple % bar chart with 22 vertical bars ranging in values. I'd like to animate the bars to all 'grow' up to 100% (and some music plays) any ideas?? thanks, Theo.

 	I don't know exactly what caused the problem. But can you just check whether
you set the option like it should start playing only by a click and that hide
during show as true? I guess this can be one reason why it doesnt showup.

1.Cannot play mpg video in Power Point 2003

I can load my video mpg file into Power Point 2003, but when I try to play 
the video the placeholder turns white and I cannot see the video. My driver 
seems to be working, and I have been following all suggestions as outlined in 
this Discussion Group. The problem arises even in "Safe" mode.

Interestingly, when I play the same video in Power Point 2000 (on a Windows 
98 platform), the video displays without problems.

Any suggestions?

2.Trying to insert a movie clip to Power Point and it won't

Can't seem to get PowerPoint to insert movie clip. Is there an easy solution 
to this?

3.mpg movies used to play in ppt 2003 dont play in 2007

4.I'm trying to play a .mpg file (error - file nonstandard or Quickt

I have an XP system with PowerPoint SR-1 (4527) and get this message when 
attempting to insert an .mpg file.  The system does not have Quicktime 
installed (so why is it looking for it).   The clip was shot on a Hitachi  
Digital Videocamera MV580E and downloaded using their own software.

"...file nonstandard or Quicktime not installed properly"

5.Playing movie stops the loop of Power Point Presentation

I have my presentation for a kiosk set to use the camera click sound on each 
slide.  I also have an 80 meg .wmv file.  I have Office 2003 with all the 
latest patches and lastest updates to XP Pro.  When I have the movie play, 
the presentation will finish the remaining slides and then go to the first 
slide in the presentation and stop looping.  Although I have it set to loop.

I mention the camera click because if I wait about 10 minutes I'll hear the 
camera click go of, the random slide transition but it returns to the first 
slide again.  I've put this on another computer and it works fine.  I've 
taken the movie out of the presentation and it runs fine.  Putting the movie 
back in it goes back to the funny behavior.  I've even tried putting the 
movie in a different part of the presentation and that doesn't seem to help.

Right now I'm trying different hardware acceleration settings and 
resolutions to see if by some chance that might be affecting it.  For what 
it's worth both computers tested are HPs.  Working computer is a DC5000 and 
non working is a DC5700 (low profile).

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
