PowerPoint 2010 Picture Presentation Format
Posted on 2012-08-14
PowerPoint 2010 allows you to save in what is known as "Picture Presentation" format. saving in this file type creates each slide as a picture and the pictures remain in the presentation and are not saved seperately. Each slide becomes a picture snapshot of the original slide and cannot be edited.
This is fine and dandy if that is what you want. Problem is, it uses the same exact extension ".pptx" as a normal PowerPoint Presentation. And once it's saved as a picture presentation, it's done. No going back.
Users are continually selecting this format by accident and having to start all over because it cannot be undone.
Question: Can I disable/remove the "PowerPoint Picture Presentation (*.pptx) from the list of saveable file types?
Systems are running Win7 Pro, 64-bit.
