Import power point greyed out

Can anyone tell me why the inport power point slides is greyed out? Could it be because I'm using PP 2003 and Captivate 5?
Thank you
Beau

Yes, it is a strange relationship Captivate with Powerpoint
Glad it is solved.

  • Importing Power Point  slides

    I have been trying to resolve this for the past two weeks. I
    have been successfully importing Power Point slides into Captivate
    1 for the last year. Although have not done anything different,
    Captivate is no longer importing the jpg logo (height 0.58" width
    1" displays top right corner) on the PP slide . Everything but the
    logo is displayed in Captivate. The logo is on the Slide Master . I
    replaced the Slide Master, copied the logo onto each individual PP
    slide and recreated the entire power point presentation without any
    success. Can anyone provide a cause and resolution? Thanks.

    I have also had inconsistent results with PowerPoint imports
    in both Captivate 1 and 2. There seem to be less in version 2. The
    problem that I have been experiencing is with fonts. I will have a
    slide that clearly is within the frame in PowerPoint, but when
    imported into Captivate flows off the bottom of the slide. This is
    also incosistent from slide to slide. Here's what I have been
    doing. It's isn't ideal, but hopefully time will get this issued
    ironed out.
    1) I go through my normal import procedures for PowerPoint
    presentations by look closely at the thumbnails provided before the
    final import. If it looks like there is going to be a problem, then
    I bail out at this point.
    2) I go back into PowerPoint, call up my presentation, and
    the do a File > Save As> and then select the file type at the
    bottom as JPEG. It will then ask you if you want to save all. I put
    them in another directory and PowerPoint saves each slide image as
    an individual JPEG image.
    3) I go back to Captivate and import these as images in the
    file creation sequence.
    This usually results in a pretty clean set of slide.
    Hope this helps.

    I have been using Lightroom 5 for 2-3 months now and all worked well, up until today's effort to import a new set of photos. I am working on a Mac with Yosemite 10.10.1.

    Go to the bibliothec module, select the folder, right click on the folder and hit synchronize
    Sorry I have only a german version , so don't know what your menu will show.

    There is no need to import anything or use Home Sharing.
    Copy the ENTIRE iTunes folder from the old computer to the new computer, everything will be exactly as it was.

  • Importing Power Point without click boxes

    When I import Power Point, I don't want click boxes to come
    along because I just have to remove them all later. That requires a
    lot of time when your power point is really huge. Is there any way
    to import without the click boxes so the slides will transition
    smoothly without my havign to do anything?
    Thanks!

    Hi janablessed
    When you create a project based on PowerPoint, note the
    screen you see. Look closely near the bottom of the dialog. See
    that drop-down choice labeled "Advance slide"? Click it and change
    it from "On mouse click" to "Automatically".
    Cheers... Rick

  • How to import power point sound on keynote ?

    how can I import power point diaporamas with the sound on keynote ?

    Sorry, Adobe Reader only reads PDF files, not PowerPoint files.
    However, if you bought Keynote for about US $9.99 in the App Store, you could open PowerPoint files.

  • I have my photos on an eternal USB connected drive. I am trying to import them to PSE. The "Copy on Import" button is greyed out. How can I enable it so I can disconnect the external drive?.

    The "Copy on Import" button is greyed out. How can I enable it so I can disconnect the external drive?.

    "Copy" is normally used when connecting a camera or card reader.
    Simply copy or move folders from your external drive to your computer hard drive, then from the Organizer menu click:
    File >> Get Photos & Videos >> From Files & Folders
    Then navigate to the new location on your internal hard drive.

  • Aperture import plug-in won't run.  After examining my library the number of image files stays at "undetermined" and the import button stays greyed out.  Any thoughts?

    Others have the same issue, with the import button being grayed out.  My trail copy expired, but I believe by poking around in the options and selecting another Aperture library and re-selecting, I was able to continue.
    The problem is common enough, that hopefully Adobe will address.  In the mean time, try repairing your Aperture library, checking permissions, exporting a subset of your library for a test, or try putting that library subset on an external drive.  (Can usually avoid permissions issues.)

  • Importing Power Point and Embedding Video in Captivate Question

    I am new to Adobe Captivate, but I have heard the following:
    1)     I can import a power point slide directly into Captivate 5.5.  
    2)     I can add a action buttion that when click, can play a short video embedded within one of the slides.
    My objective is:
    1)     When I click that action buttion, I want to play that short video embedded within one of the slides.
    2)     Each slide will have an action buttion, and embedded slide of video (different video).
    3)     When the video is completed, it returns back to display the original slide
    4)     The user can just look at the slide and just move to the next slide without showing the video.
    To accomplish this in Captivate 5.5, can I do this ?
    1)     I understand that one must place a button on the converted slide and also embed the video to another slide.  This is done by using the tool bar.
    Is it possible to do this using programing scripts or anything ???    I would have a many slides to do, and I would like to automate this process.
    I would appreciate any suggestions and help.
    Thank You,
    G

  • Imported Drum loops greyed out

    I have imported .wav drum loops using iTunes but when I go to garageband on my iPad Air they are visible in my list of available loops but they are greyed out and I cannot drag and drop them into a track. Other formats I have imported, such as mp3 are fine, and are available.

    well im almost there.. do you mind if I just run something by you. After dragging in the loops folder from the library not all of them are importing. Its pretty random actually. I wonder if thats normal because Apple wants you to buy the ones that are greyed out... or am I still doing something wrong?

  • How do I enable the Move Option When Importing (It's Greyed Out)

    Bonjour,
    I am trying to figure out why Aperture 2 does not ask to delete photos from camera (Canon SD950 IS) after import or why the "move" option is 'greyed' out. I have searched the forums here and have only seen people offer advice why this is not good. Not to be an A##, but I don't want advice. I need an answer to my question. How do I enable this functionality? I know that it is technically possible as the simple app "Image Capture" that comes with Leopard does exactly this.(Imports then Deletes from my camera) It's just that Aperture cost too much money in my opinion to force one to use an external app to do what you want done, especially since it is not a difficult function to perform as evidenced by aforementioned app in Leopard. TIA.
    Hardware: 17' Glossy HiRes Mac Book Pro 3.1 Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 Ghz 4GB Ram
    OS: Mac OS X 10.5.3 All updates applied
    App: Aperture 2.1
    A bientot,
    William.

    Please don't take the following as a flame...
    <quote>The move option is grayed out when importing from a card to save you from yourself. At least that's what I've always assumed.</quote>
    That's a bit draconian don't you think? Why have the option greyed out if you don't want the user to be able to do this. It's kind of like saying hahah, this is possible to do, but, you, the user, are a moron. Why even place the option on the page in the first place.
    <quote>It just happens to be a bug that few on this forum care to see fixed because most of us feel that using it is unwise due to the danger of lost images and corrupted cards.</quote>
    Again, why put it on page as an option if it weren't intended to be enabled in a plist somewhere for those who wish to be 'unwise.'
    My logic is as follows: If Apple provides software that is more accessible to the 'unwashed masses' (because it's included with Leopard ie. Image Capture) and it deletes images directly from the camera, then why would a professional package (Aperture) limit the so called 'professional' from designing and using his/her own workflow governed by their own experience. Which could include first a backup to dvd or other device of your choice (keyword here: CHOICE) THEN import images and delete directly from the camera. Logically this is completely BACKWARDS, the app available to the 'masses'(Image Capture) should NOT let the user delete images directly from the camera and the 'professional' app (Aperture) should allow more flexibility for the advanced user who understands the implications of his/her work flow and adjusts accordingly.
    Besides, And I quote myself "I have searched the forums here and have only seen people offer advice why this is not good. Not to be an A##, but I don't want advice. I need an answer to my question. How do I enable this functionality?"
    Therefore, respectfully, your answer is: non sequitur.
    Best Regards

  • Importing Power Point Slides into FCE

    Hey all,
    Have a project where I need to use a customer's power point slides in the finished video. Can I import them someway? Or maybe import into Live Type????

    You can save a PowerPoint slideshow in many ways.
    One possibility is to export a set of images with the format you like: jpeg, tiff, png, etc.: make sure to select the correct DPI (as defined in PPT) in the Options of the save as dialog. For example 180 dpi make a standard slide of 1800x1350 pixels that might fit well in standard DV sequences (default 72 dpi makes a low quality 720x540 image).
    A second possibility is to export a movie; also in this case you can choose some parameters like the size of the frame. The default codec is Animation that is good, but requires a conversion of the movie in order to properly import it to FCE.
