I work with PowerPoint on a daily basis and I am very honored to be a Microsoft PowerPoint MVP. We have a talented team of presentation designers at TLC Creative Services and ThePowerPointBlog is our area to highlight PowerPoint tips, tricks, examples and tutorials. Enjoy! Troy Chollar
Sometimes you don’t want to give away to much information. And when an Excel chart or movie is inserted you are giving away information about your network/file structure.
As example, right click on a movie that is inserted into PowerPoint and choose EDIT.
The movie information includes the path where it came from.
To eliminate this information I use the Fix Links Pro add-in (website is here).
(1) Open Fix Links Pro and choose REPAIR
(2) It generates a report about all multimedia and embedded files in the presentation. The key is where the report says “now path-free”.
(3) Now right click the movie, choose EDIT and see that the path information has been removed
