    hello how do I listen to my own recorded webinar. how do I save it in my files so i can send to someone? thanks

    • The Tech Train
      The Tech Train 12 hours ago

      If you've recorded the narration you want, and you want to send the completed presentation to somebody else then you have two options. First of all if you head to Slideshow > Setup Show and choose the option for it to be browsed at a kiosk this will create a stand-alone presentation that will play without opening automatically in PowerPoint. Your second option, and probably the better one, is to go to the File menu, choose Save As, and then just underneath the file name change the file type to a video format such as MP4. This will turn your presentation into a video which can be played on any computer whether or not it has PowerPoint installed. I hope this helps.

    Is there a way to set the macro randomization of the slides to a timer rather than clicking the button?

    • soultaker1083
      soultaker1083 13 hours ago

      @The Tech Train Awesome! Just to clarify, I'm not really looking for a countdown timer but more so looking to have the slide change randomly after a certain nunber of second.

    • The Tech Train
      The Tech Train 14 hours ago

      Yes, there is. You'd need to include a timer macro (which I'm actually about to include in a video shortly) and have this reset on slide change. Check out the video in the next few days about a clock, and that code should help. Make sure you're subscribed of course so you'll know!

    How does one read the number E9 aloud? As 'two hundred thirty three'? Or is it simply read as 'E nine'? Thanks for the quick and clear method of conversion.

    • The Tech Train
      The Tech Train 18 hours ago

      Hello, glad you liked the video. It's important when reading either binary or hexadecimal numbers not to read them as though they were decimal. So, in this case E9 is read as exactly that 'Ee Nine'. You can see how this is important because while the digits 10 in decimal are read as 'ten', in binary 10 is the value of two, and in hexadecimal 10 is equivalent to 16, so we always read these as the digits, not the familiar decimal words. I hope this helps.

    How can I insert numbers in boxes? Please give me some advice.

    • The Tech Train
      The Tech Train Day ago

      These tick boxes are symbols, or characters, you can't put numbers into them. You'd either need a font that includes those sorts of characters, or use a numbered bullet list. I hope this helps.

  • Nicole Sestrap
    Nicole Sestrap 11 days ago

    I’m trying to build a PowerPoint deck that does exactly this, except I want it to choose a random slide (without repeating) from a single main slide. For example, I would click a button to choose a random slide and then click a home button to go back to the main page. From there I would want it to choose another random slide in a range but recognize the slide that’s already been chosen and not repeat until all other slides have been chosen. Is this possible? If so, what would the code be?

    • Nicole Sestrap
      Nicole Sestrap Day ago

      Would you be able to provide me with the code to be able to create the array and process?

    • The Tech Train
      The Tech Train Day ago

      It's certainly possible, using an array. I don't think it would need much tweaking from this version - you'd just need the main button on the home page and all other slides have a link back to that home page.

  • petrus

    It works well when creating new document the way you're showing. But when I use right-click on my desktop or wherever and create a new doc, it ALWAYS uses the default template (calibri 11, adjusted to left and so on), even after that template has been modified.

    • The Tech Train
      The Tech Train Day ago

      Why not make a shortcut to the template and place that on your desktop?

      That can happen when you've converted your chart to a group of circles, if you haven't aligned it correctly over the centre point, or if you have inadvertently included an extra line or shape when grouping the segments.
