PowerPoint 2007 and Interactive SWF File & Going to Next Slide


A

Hello everyone,

Have tried to search the user group and have not found an answer to
the following:

Using PowerPoint 2007... I have an interactive SWF file that was added
using the following method:
Developer Tab / More Controls / Shockwave Flash Object / added
filename under "Movie"

The problem is since the SWF we received from the graphic artist is
interactive, there does not seem to be a way to return control back to
PowerPoint in order to go to the next slide. Is there some kind of
control or command that needs to be placed in the SWF file that will
return control back to PPT in order to advance to the next slide, or
is there another way to accomplish this (i.e., a control in PPT
Properties window)?

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

AtlantaTedGoogle

Make the object smaller than the slide so you can click on the edge and get
control back. I usually make the background black.

Or get the swf to send FSCommands which can be processed using VBA.
