Topic: Frustrated with PPT 2007 and Presenter
I generally stick to PPT but have been asked to develop a presentation that will be pulled into Presenter, have audio added and then be distributed on a website.
The presentation I developed, which utilized a variety of PPT's features, looks HORRIBLE in Presenter.
I have found the link to the list of known issues on Adobe's site w/ any possible work arounds but that only takes care of one of our issues (some text boxes resized themselves smaller causing text to run onto the next line).
Our remaining issues:
Anytime SmartArt is utilized there is a fine grid over any shapes and all text is horribly pixelated/blurry.
Any bolded text is pixelated/blurry.
Any arrows that have been drawn and animated are pixelated/blurry.
Any text appearing on shapes (rounded rectangle w/ gradient, shadow, and bevel applied) are pixelated/blurry.
Animated arrow squashed and distorted.
Basically the only slides that came through Presenter the way they were intended were the basic bullet only slides.
We are about to throw in the towel and just keep the entire project in PPT with a voice file on each page, but that doesn't solve our problems long term since the entire company was upgraded from Office 2000 to Office 2007 and more and more people are going start using the PPT features that make their presentations more polished and interesting to their audiences.... and then want to use them in Presenter.
I'd appreciate any help or insight anyone may have.
