PowerPoint Viewer 2007

Hello!

I have an urgent PowerPoint problem I need resolved:

I have completed a PowerPoint presentation using MS PowerPoint 2007.
I have many animations in my presentation, all of which are standard
animations within Microsoft's program. When I run my "slide show"
within MS PP 2007 it runs perfect but, when I run my presentation
using Microsoft Office PowerPoint Viewer 2007 I lose all the
animations associated with the text in the body of my template. All
animations associated with embedded graphics and title text work fine
but the text in the body of my presentation loses its animation. Can
you please assist me?

It is very important I run my slide show in PP Viewer as many of my
clients do not own Microsoft's PowerPoint program.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Thank you very much.

Jim

The PowerPoint Viewer 2007 is some kind of a 2003 Viewer with the
Compatibility Pack integrated. Thus presentations are shown in 2003 format.
And that means, that WordArt loses its animation because it's treated like
an image. You have to consider that when formatting text and animating it.

Best regards,
Ute

Dear Ute:

Thank you but why does this also occur when I save my presentation in PPT 03
version then view in PP Viewer 2003?

Thank you.

Dear Ute:

I'm completely confused. I've eliminated all text effects, leaving standard
formatting and my problem still exists. Furthermore, the graphics/pictures
(jpegs) animate correctly in PP Viewer. I'm not sure if you would agree to
this but, I could email a sample of 3 slides so you'd know exactly what I'm
dealing with? Please let me know.

Thank you.

Hi Jim

Have you used SmartArt? If so, when you back save to 97-03 format PowerPoint
converts it to pictures and hence any animation will be lost. Does that make
sense? One workaround is to ungroup the SmartArt and animate the elements
but that can get messy and I would only do it once I was sure I didn't want
to make any changes (you can make a copy of the SmartArt and move it off the
slide & make it small so you can make amendments to that if you need to in
the future).

Hope that makes sense - I've not had my coffee yet :)
