For yesterdays service we had a guest speaker who brought their own presentation on a thumb drive.This presented a couple of problems.

Usually the process is to import and convert to images. I couldn't do that yesterday because the slides were cut off at the bottoms cutting off scripture and references when converted to images.Today I went back and reloaded the proclaim presentation then deleted and re-entered the power point presentation as images. There was no issue withe slides after doing this which was no good to me being a day after services. 

Since we had the issue with the slides not converting to images properly we went ahead and tried to run powerpoint through proclaim. This was a bigger headache since what resulted was a quick flash of the first slide and then a black screen for each slide afterwards. The presentation was advancing according to the timeline at the bottom of the screen but no image. So what we ended up doing was running powerpoint separately. Again I tried to go back and reload the element in to the service with what happened on Sunday continue today.  To me this is frustrating because it takes away any ease of use this program offers and really sticks it to our volunteers.

When you imported the ppt presentation as images and they were cut off was it on the same machine as when it succeeded the next day? If not can you describe the differences b/w the two machines used? Mac vs Windows?

Scott - It was on the same laptop (a Gigabyte U2442) running windows 8.1, loaded with office 2013 both days.

If you could attach and post the powerpoint giving you trouble, that would be great. That way I can take a look and see if I can reproduce the issue. If this still gives you trouble in the future, a workaround is to export the powerpoint slides as jpgs and upload those individually into Proclaim to use in an image slideshow (a little more work but gets the job done).

One of the things I love about Microsoft PowerPoint is that it is 100% Microsoft PowerPoint compatible. Stick out tongue
