Powerpoint stage size 640x480

When i paste bitmaps intop my powerpoint it seems liek a 753 x 565 72dpi is edge to edge.

I have a project where many images are 640x480 and overlays/text proportional to that.

My conversion woudl be much easier if i could simply set the stage size to 640x480.

All i can find is where to set the print size - not the stage size itself.

Office 2007, yes the "100 %" view of the slide size while authoring.

You can set PowerPoint's Slide Size using File, Page Setup. There you can choose any of several standard sizes or enter your own custom size. In PowerPoint 2007 though, choose Page Setup on the Design tab. In PowerPoint 97 and previous, choose File, Slide Setup. Same options, just a different name on the menu.

I hope this helps you, good luck.

Thanks - i dismssed page size as not having any effect, but if you do view 100% it does actually afect the available stage as you alter this.
