Opening PPT 2007 slides from .htm link


P

Paul

I created several training presentations in PPT 2003. Each presentation is
linked to a common index file created in PPT 2003 and saved as an HTML
document.

When I open the files in PPT 2007, the link opens the presentation in PPT,
instead of as a full-screen slide show as it did in PPT 2003.

How can I open the presentations from the index file link as a full-screen
slide show?

Thanks!

Steve,
(This is about the fifth time I've tried to reply... with no luck the first
four times! LOL!)

I have an index to my training presentations I created in PPT 2003 and saved
it as an html file. In it I have links to the individual presentations.
When I open the index file in IE and click a link (on a computer running
Office 2007), the presentation opens with the preview slides down the left
side of the screen. When I do the same thing on a computer running Office
2003, the presentation opens in a full screen.

The orginal setting for "Slide Show | Set Up Show..." is "Presented by
speaker (full screen)".

Thanks!

Paul

Office 2007 makes some changes to the way PPT opens presentations linked to from a
browser. The rationale escapes me entirely. But there's some more information
about it here:

If that doesn't solve the problem, then it may not be soluble, at least with 2007
in place. :-(

Steve,
If it's not solvable, I'll just consider it a "feature" instead of a "glitch".
Thanks!

Steve,
I believe I may have found a workaround. I'm still tinkering, but here's
what I've found:

Create the presentations saved in .ppsm, then use Word to create the index
file (save as .htm) with the links embeded there. When you click the links
in the Word document ("index.html"), the presentation opens in full-screen.

It also saved the macros I'd made to create custom navigation buttons (after
I went to the developer tab and enabled macros).
