PowerPoint presentations contain slides that are usually projected in a presentation. Or, people view them over the internet, either through a website or through a teleconference.

In this window, you can control how memoQ imports presentations from Microsoft PowerPoint 2003 or earlier (these are *.ppt or *.pot documents).

This window is for PowerPoint presentations from PowerPoint 2003 or earlier: Use it to import .ppt or *.pot files.

How to get here

1.Start importing a PowerPoint presentation from PowerPoint 2003 or earlier (a .ppt file).

2.In the Document import options window, select the PowerPoint presentations, and click Change filter and configuration.

3.The Document import settings window appears. From the Filter drop-down list, choose Microsoft PowerPoint filter.


What can you do?

First, memoQ converts the presentation into the PPTX format (the one used by PowerPoint 2007 or later).

Under Select import type: Click Import as PPTX. Do not click Import as PPT through Office Interop.

This works if PowerPoint 2007 or later is installed on your computer. memoQ calls PowerPoint to save the document in the newest format.

If PowerPoint 2007 or later isn't installed: Check the Aspose check box. memoQ converts the document into the newest format on its own. For that, memoQ uses a module called Aspose.

Click Import markup as inline tags. The other option is to import all formatting markup as legacy memoQ {tags}, which is not recommended.

Import or ignore master slides, notes, comments, or hidden slides

If there are text boxes with several lines of text, separated by soft line breaks: Normally, they will be together in one segment, and the soft breaks appear as inline tags. If you need separate segments: Clear the Import soft breaks as inline tags check box.

Deal with content that work in the newest PowerPoint versions only
