    Any word or powerpoint experts (and I mean experts)

    I'm trying to insert a word document into a powerpoint presentation or vice versa. So far the only thing I can see of relevance is to "insert object" but really what I want is to make a powerpoint presentation with certain inserted word pages in it (the word pages are too big to insert into the powerpoint slides I think.

    I can change the direction of slide on the page setup but could do with being able to change just one slide rather than having to change all of them into portrait.

    Anyone able to help please? I have been googling but not come up with the right solution as yet.

    You could save the word page as a jpg using "MS document image writer" then insert it as an image into a slide but if the word doc contains text its going to be too small to read......

    power point slides aren't supposed to have too much writing on them, that would make them hard to read for the person viewing it. why don't you just type any info you want from the word doc onto the slide?

    I was thinking the same...power point things in my work are boring and normally from Ofcom/Ofgem so have one word headings and a picture of a phone/pylon etc. Then the next page has an essay so tend to switch off and hope someones making notes.

    they're supposed to be more tools for a presentation and not the presentation themselves aren't they.

    It's not really a presentation as such but this is the way the company generally does it. Scanning would be the obvious answer but my scanner is not happy at the moment and gets almost all the way through and jams (on nothing!).

    I have found a way I think of just inserting a powerpoint presentation into a word doc but it only seems to insert the first page, I have about 90 slides to go in. Oh well, guess I'll be here a long time!

    I was always told that it's words to help the presenter know what to say next. So a title and a couple of bullet points...then the speaker knows what to say next. Ofcom/Ofgem obviously wasnt told how i was...:whistling:

    haha yeah me too, i have a certificate in powerpoint (lame i know) and i've done advanced word and was always told that powerpoints are for short and snappy bits of info and pictures, graphs, etc, not entire word docs

    Yes nothing worse than a training day where some random reads out a load of stuff from a ppt!
    Wow, if I had taught lessons like that there would have been riots - or worse!

    Ofgem ... getting better all the time - at ppts!

    At least you're aware it's lame...good of you to admit to that at least. Although i've actually been on a speed reading course through work, all i actually read are letters of complaint and most are only 2 pages long...so no actual need to speed read. But i've got me certificate anyway :-D lol
