  1. I have made a slide show of photos from a trip to Venice. After selecting styles and getting the timing perfect, I need to add simple text to a few slides. It has been my experience that adding text (through objects & animations) negates the style I have selected. Is there a work around for this?
  2. An interesting thing about PTE and my Windows Reset. I thought I would loose all the styles which I had copied and modified from all you wonderful people. When I downloaded PTE after the reset - as a trial - I was delighted to find that my modified styles were still there. I am surprised, but happy.
  3. I upgraded in Feb 2017 to PTE version 9 and paid $39. I had to do a Windows Reset last Friday . I have just downloaded PTE version 9 again but I can't find the key to activate it. What do I need to do? (I know I should have saved it and I did save it but unfortunately, it didn't survive the Windows Reset - or at least, I can't find it.) Thanks, Shirley
  4. Yes, I did see that, Rick. I found it very helpful. Linn is so good about helping people. I really appreciate him.
  5. Lin Evans, I love the videos you make to help people understand things (especially to help on several occasions). Glad to see that you are recovering from your stroke.
  6. Rick, I also thought that there used to be a way to save a default font option for text but I searched recently and could not find it. After reading your message, I have just tried again to find it. If you click on the "Project Options" button and select "options", the first item on the screen is "Customize Font". You can change font, text size, color, etc. There is a "Click to Apply to All Slides" button. I thought I had found what I was looking for. But it doesn't work for me. Does anyone shed any light on this?
  7. Thanks Igor for your response. I am sorry to be such a problem child. Detail about three error messages follow: #1. "Frame Engine Exception" This message appeared several times recently when I tried to change the Font Type on O&A and I would have to use Task Manager to get out of PTE. (That would explain the Recovered Project notation, I think.) I read some posts from July about that error message and tried someone's (maybe yours, I'm not sure) suggestion to download PTE Version 9.012. I did that and the Font problem seems to be resolved. The next time I accessed my PTE slideshow, the "Recovered Project" notation was gone. #2. "Exception Access Violation in module PicturesToExe at 00091932" I can't say what I was doing when I saw that error message and I don't know what I did to make it go away. A similar, if not exact, message has cropped up several times. Sorry I can't be more descriptive. If it happens again, I will try to get more information. #3. "The folder contains Items whose names are too long for recycle bin." A folder, which seemed to relate to PTE Styles & Resources, appeared on my desktop. It appeared to be in a loop and kept on creating folders. I can't say for sure how many but their properties show zero bytes but each one contains more folders. I have not found a way to delete them. None of them are causing me problems at the moment. I know I am not explaining them well enough for anyone to re-create the error message. But if you have any thoughts I would appreciate hearing them.
  8. I have been working on a PTE show off and on for a couple of months. I just noticed today that at the top left of screen it says "Recovered Project" (see attached). I also have a couple of error messages that I need to ask about but perhaps I should address this first. Can anyone tell me what that means? Thanks Shirley
  9. I'm working on one I agree, George. I'm working on one right now for our 60th anniversary. Great walk down memory lane.
  10. Thank you Lin. You're the best. Sorry I didn't respond sooner. We were in an auto accident and our car was totalled so we've been tied up dealing with that. I really appreciate this and all the help you have given me for the past several years.
  11. Where do you find these styles. I have version 9 of PTE. I would love to be able to use some of these additional styles but I can't figure out how to get them. (I know you use tools - import but I don't know where you import from.)
