Q: I want to switch the look and feel of the presentation in the middle, so that I have an opening look, a change to a sales look in the middle, then a closing set of slides with their own look to them. Whenever I try to change the Master Template for one slide, they all change! How can I do this?
A: Quite right. When you change the master Template, they all change (thus "Master" Template"). There are two ways to proceed:
Every slide in PowerPoint has "A Strategic Alliance" on it.
Q: When I use PowerPoint to pull the bitmap I want to use on the presentation, I get the words "A Strategic Alliance" on each slide, and can't get rid of it. What am I doing wrong?
A: It sounds as if you are not using Visual Thunder to transfer the template, but rather grabbing the PICTURE of the TEMPLATE directly from the CD, and using that as a background. You need to highlight (select) the template you want to use as a Master Template, then select the "Transfer Template" menu option from either the File menu or the Pop-Up menu (right mouse button).
Sound says it transfers, but it isn't playing.
Q: I select a sound and click the Transfer button, and, although it says that it was transferred correctly, there is no sound when I play the presentation in PowerPoint.
A: Sounds as if you have PowerPoint 8.0 (Office 97). Upgrading should solve this problem.
Q: Even though, when I am creating the presentation in PowerPoint, the slide text for the Titles and Sub-Titles displays as white, when I print out handouts it shows up black, which is unreadable on many of the templates.
A: When you print, on the Print interface window that pops up, make sure you have the checkbox next to "Black & White" unchecked.
Q: How do I see what the presentation (Body) slide will look like for a specific template while I am still in Visual Thunder?
A: There are two different ways to do this:
Q: Is there a way to see more detail of the templates?
A: Yes, select the "View large Size Picture" menu item from either the Pop-Up menu or the View menu.
Q: Can I crop or apply any types of special filters to a photo before I send it to PowerPoint?
A: Yes, select the "View/Edit Photo" menu item from either the Pop-Up menu or the View menu. This will take you to a new interface that allows you to simply crop, rotate and apply a simple set of filters to the photo or portion of the photo, then transfer the new, unique photo to your presentation slide.
