Microsoft PowerPoint

PowerPoint is a slide show presentation program currently developed by Microsoft. PowerPoint presentations consist of a number of individual pages or "slides" that may contain text, graphics, sound, movies, and other objects, which may be arranged freely. The presentation can be printed, displayed live on a computer, or navigated through at the command of the presenter. Slides can also form the basis of webcasts.

Problem: I need to know best practices to prevent a PowerPoint file from being corrupted.
For instance, I could not open a PowerPoint file and I believe it was because it had links to Excel. I observed via task manager that the excel process opened when the PowerPoint was opened. Note, I could not even modify the PowerPoint file when I opened it, the entire application froze and I had to close it via task manager.
On a positive note, I could open the PowerPoint file on Power Point online.

I could not repair the PowerPoint file via the PowerPoint repair  (browser to the file and select open and repair) option.
I could not re-use the slides from the PowerPoint file I could not open.
I could not open the PowerPoint file when I dragged the file name on the PowerPoint executable.

My proposed solution is to remove all links to external files file before finally saving the file

OS: Windows 10
Office 365

Any suggestions.?

The chaplain would like to run music videos within PowerPoint presentations.

I used Handbrake to convert H.264 to MPEG-4, but that significantly reduced the quality.

Is there a happy medium?

We have a hybrid environment with several local domains syncing to one tenant. All users have Office365 subscriptions and are using their locally installed PowerPoint client. We do not push policies from the local domains.

Each company has its own PowerPoint template, but the different templates can be available for all companies.

I would like the templates to show when a users selects NEW in PowerPoint (local PowerPoint template) and that the templates shown are stored in a central place (preferably a SharePoint site). It is not needed that this is the default template, just a location is already good enough.

Thanks for any help!

Mark

After an update on my  MSOffice 2016 last Fri, there's a marked
performance degradation when launching my ppt, Word, Excel:
takes at least 3 times longer to load.

I wanted to post the build number but when I click on "Help",
the "About" is not there anymore;  rather, now after clicking
"Help", it gaves a submenu of "Help", "Contact Support",
"Feedback", "Show Training", "Whats New"

I'm trying to create a cute slide with an animation that shows an image (i.e. a cartoon virus), "multiplying" dozens of times, all over the slide.
So I created a Macro which calls VBA code on SlideShowNextSlide.  I verify the slide is the right number, and I use this code to copy and paste an object multiple times:
With ActivePresentation
      For Count = 1 To 40
                randomX = Int(850 * Rnd(1)) - 30
                RandomY = Int(500 * Rnd(1)) - 20
                RandomRotation = Int(360 * Rnd(1)) + 1
                ActivePresentation.Slides(9).Shapes(1).Copy
                    Set myrange = ActivePresentation.Slides(9).Shapes.Paste
        myrange.Left = randomX
        myrange.Top = RandomY
        myrange.Rotation = RandomRotation
end with

Open in new window


The code works just fine, however, the images all "appear at once" and I'd like to see them appear 1 at a time, albeit very very fast.   When I use a timer code such as
  Start = Timer
Do While Timer < Start + 0.1
 DoEvents
          Loop
  

Open in new window


it doesn't work well at all.  The results look terrible.  Chunks of items get pasted...then a delay, then more chunks.  Nothing is smooth.  I'd like to have my images pasted with even intervals of a couple of miliseconds.  Is this possible?

I have a customer who imports slides into a master slide. However he wants to set up a scenario where he has a header in the Master Slide which takes precedence over imported content. e.g. he wants to have a master slide with e.g. July 2019 on it so then when he imports slides from others - even if they have June 2019 on them, that what appears automatically is July 2019. Any ideas?

I can get the text box to be white when it is blank and when there is one character and can get the textbox to be red when it is wrong. How do I get the textbox to be green when the answer is correct? How do I get  textbox 1 to change textbox2 by pressing  the tab button?

How can I keep the text boxes color to
        be originally white (if at least one text box is blank) ,
       change to green and "chimes" sound (if  all the text boxes are filled in and correct),
       change to red and "alarm01" sound (if all the text boxes are filled in and least one text box is wrong).
Is it possible for the cursor to  automatically move from  text box to another( without moving the mouse or without using a code)?

I want to create a master template that includes not only a color scheme, but also specifies the fonts of titles and bullet points. If possible, I want the bullet points to all have the same animation as well on all slides. The animation is as follows: I want the first bullet point white and the others grayed out against the dark background. With each click of the mouse, I would like the active bullet point white and the others grayed out, progressing down the list.

This template will be used for 9 different presentations at one meeting, so I want the look to be seamless.

Our company is moving away from file sharing and to cloud based storage.  We have a bunch of PowerPoint presentations that are linked to external sources.  Our plan is to move the source documents to the cloud and then we need to repoint or relink the PowerPoint presentations to the new space.  Is there a way to have a macro to effectively do a find/replace for the source files?   Especially if the presentation has a lot of charts/graphs and linked to more than one source document.  If it matters, some slides have multiple sources on it as well.  We're on Office 2016.  Any help would be appreciated.
