Reviewing Toolbar in Powerpoint

All,

Powerpoint keeps automatically showing the 'reviewing' toolbar when opening presentations.  I'm using Office 11 (2003) on Windows XP and this happens for almost all presentations.

I read the various threads here and can't find a universal way to turn it off (ie. I can't write macros for every presentation I open or work on or I would never get any work done).  One lead is that it seems to happen for evey presentation created in a version older than Office 2003.

Thanks

Hi pascalgaut,

what happens when you save a presentation without the toolbar enabled ?
Does it happen then also ?

No, the toolbar stays away once I save the presentation.

Hmm not quite understanding the situation here

Let us say you create a new PPT
Donot have any reviewing toolbar while you save the presentation

So you are saying when you close the presentation and open the presentation again, the reviewing toolbar automatically comes up even if you had disabled it before closing powerpoint the previous time ?

No,

I get a lot of presentations sent through to me.  When I open them, Powerpoint automatically shows the reviewing toolbar (eventhough when I open Powerpoint without any presentation the toolbar is turned off and does not appear).  Each time the reviewing toolbar appears, it re-orders my other toolbars (the ones that I do want to have appear).  Each time, I have to close the reviewing toolbar manually and reorder my other toolbars ... it's a real pain.

This problem does not happen when I create and save my own presentations. Hence it seems that only presentations saved in previous versions make Powerpoint 2003 automatically show the reviewing toolbar.

I guess the presentations that are sent you are reviewed using those reviewing toolbar functions before sent to you.

Ask the person whoever sends you the presentation to create and save the presentation exactly the same way as you do and cross check if that happens

Outlook and Review Features


Jeff H in the PowerPoint newsgroup discovered that Outlook was automatically turning on the Review feature even when users were choosing the other send via email option.


Daddy, make it stop!

Open Outlook 2002
Go to the Tools menu
Select Options
On the Preferences tab click on E-mail Options
Click Advanced E-mail Options
Remove the checkmark next to "Add properties to attachments to enable Reply with Changes".

Note: The result of this change is stored in:


HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\Outlook\Options\Mail\AdHocReviewBehavior


We recommend using the normal user interface to make the change, but if you're a network admin pushing the change out to bazillions of users, you know what to do with the registry info above. If you don't know what to do with registry info, it's best to do nothing with it.
