    Any way to export a ppt to eps? OR something similiar instead of just copying the artwork out to flexi..

    Just want to rant - I hate slow computers! ugh!

    Anyways I found out another way was to save as to a .wmf and then import to illustrator.. loses the text formatting but it works for logos, etc!

    You can also try a pdf generator like primo pdf found at primopdf.com. It's free and works well.

    You can also try dragging and dropping the slide right into Flexi, then go to -Arrange- convert linked to native-

    Sweet that works good but i've ran into a few problems. A font missing which I fixed, and there logo and picture in the background messes up.. ugh it's weird!

    Is there anyway to unlock the picture in powerpoint so you can "mess" with it, also is there any way to convert the font to "shapes" (ie: outlines in flexi) that way it looks the exact same?

    Microsoft programs suck.

    You might be able to manipulate the picture a little more in publisher if you have it, but insist that the customer send you the original photos, names of the fonts, etc.. as separate elements. And charge them for the time you spend getting the artwork production ready.
