  • PowerPoint 2007 annoyances

    1. When you're typing a comma-separated list in a word-wrapped text box, PowerPoint is determined to start it off on a new line, even if there's plenty of room on teh previous line, and will not wrap teh new line appropriately either

    2. Where did teh "Move up" and "Move down" buttons go? If I have a bulleted and sub-bulleted list, I want to be able to quickly change teh order, and teh removal of these buttons makes it harder

    3. Why does teh format painter no longer copy teh bullet/sub-bullet formatting?

    The keyboard shortcut still works, right?

          It actually has features, unlike Keynote '08 (which I did toy with for about an hour last week).

          I've never, ever, seen a Keynote presentation in the wild...only Jobs' keynotes.

              Apple Pages, Apple Numbers, Apple Keynote...of course.

              All top-notch applications. Numbers, for example, doesn't know what to do if you paste spreadsheet data into it. It puts it all into 1 cell, not a grid. Hugely intelligent design.

                  I thought he'd be an iWork fanboy.

                  I tried NeoOffice (Mac native OpenOffice) on OS X and it was garbage. iWork is no better.

                    Either answer is equally ridiculous.

                      Agathon exists in academia. He should take a stroll outside sometimes to see what the real world is like.

                      Try bringing an Open Office Impress or a Keynote presentation to another company to run your presentation...

                        Welcome back Asher

                        It sure looks like you missed Aggie.

                        I'm in academia and use Powerpoint 2002. It does the job, but the presentation templates that come with it are a bit on the bland side, IMO. I never used Keynote, but the presentation demos I've seen look quite nice.

                          I used to like Lotus 123 before MS Excel killed it off.

                          IIUC there were plenty of good commercial presentation graphics packages other than Powerpoint, but its been a long time since Ive used one, and I never used them as much as the spreadsheets.

                              I am the IT guy here in the office, and we organise conferences, so for nearly every conference we do, they will ask me along to assist.

                              I find that PowerPoint is fine, but still a troublesome for presenters to use (especially in regards to navigation).

                              However, one or two presenters have used Acrobat to present, despite the dimensions, it actually worked really well. If Adobe can enhance Acrobat to be more dynamic with its text, video and images, then Acrobat could take over PP quite easily.
