That I know of you cant change a ppt to a swf. You can import the seperate jpeg's of each frame into a fla and save that out. But thats about the only way I know of. You may want to tell MicroBeast to put the save as a swf option in PP2001. Regards, Bill

That is an interesting idea, Sun is planing to release Star Office with GPL, this would be a nice extension.

btw. SO can import .ppt files

You can also export Powerpoint slides as *.wmf files (Windows Metafile). That way, you retain the vector qualities and font qualities in your presentation, as well as individual objects. Bitmaps still come through as bitmaps.

For more info, I cranked out a fairly basic tutorial at

Hope that helps,
