Adding PowerPoint presentations to the Playlist
Previous  Top  Next

To add a presentation to the playlist, you can:

·Select the Add PowerPoint to Playlist option from the main window Playlist menu  
·Select the Add PowerPoint option from the playlist window View menu  
·Click the Add toolbar button (a green + sign) and select the Add PowerPoint File option  

A file dialog will appear and any PowerPoint presentation or slideshow files on the computer may be selected. Once you have selected a file, it will be added to the end of the playlist. Once on the playlist, presentations can be rearranged just like any other playlist items.

(You cannot rearrange the slides within a presentation - but you can move the entire presentation within the playlist. To rearrange the slides, edit the file in Powerpoint and THEN add it to the playlist.)

PowerPoint files are NOT embedded into playlists - the playlist simply references the file on disk. If you move, delete or rename a presentation, the playlist will not be able to find it later.  
If you want to select a different PowerPoint file for the playlist, you can do so without deleting and re-adding it.

·Select the presentation you want to change. From the Playlist Item menu, select the Change PowerPoint option.  
·Right-click the presentation you want to change, and select the Change PowerPoint option from the popup menu that appears.  

A file selection dialog will appear, and you can select a different presentation file.
