Hello Wade,

If you are on Mac, there is only one way to import Powerpoint. This method converts all of the Powerpoint slides to images, so all of the text and images and so on are preserved, but animations will be lost.

If you are on Windows, you have the option of converting to images OR to transfer control to Powerpoint. Transferring control to Powerpoint only works if you have Powerpoint installed on your computer, and this will effectively run a Powerpoint presentation within Proclaim, thereby preserving all of the animations in the Powerpoint. If you do choose the "Transfer control to Powerpoint" option, however, the Powerpoint will remain local to your machine and will not be synced with the rest of your presentation.

I was faced with this for a service tonight and am now convinced that integration is not as important as I thought.

All I did was to set up the Keynotes on a separate space.

When the time came in the service to use the keynote  I hit the blank screen and a three finger swipe moved seamlessly  to Keynote and at the end a reverse swipe moved back to Proclaim - the congregation would not have noticed.

It just worked.

That is a nice work-a-round, I wish there could be a PowerPoint viewer built into Proclaim that didn't require PowerPoint.  I don't know how difficult the coding would be but I know that there is other software out there that can do this and/or convert it to a usable state that isn't just static images.

I understand the ability to switch between programs, but like David, I would love to see it intergraded into the proclaim program.  The problem I had in attempting this [more as a last minute idea] is that we use a 55' LCD TV instead of a projector.  When I switched to the keynote presentation, my resolution was not set right.  I am going to try to set up the resolution first then run proclaim and switch to keynote to see if it will "hold".  And I don't know about anyone else but my proclaim is often "glitchy" when ON AIR and trying to scroll through slides. [this may be my Mac....idk]

Nevertheless, I like the program and know that the developers are always hard at work trying to perfect a "tool" that many of us are grateful for.  #totallynotcomplaining  :)
