  1. Canvas Size

    Hi Dave, Many thanks, I just couldn't fathom how to shift the Centre Point. I have now successfully replicated my previous Barn Door Transition All the best TC
  2. Canvas Size

    In a previous version of PTE I created the Barn Door Transition using 2 Slide 1's and used the canvas size option to reduce each one to 50% of the original size thus creating to two Barn Doors. This placed the centre point at the edge such that rotation of the doors took place from the right and left hand edges of the image. I have been trying to recreate this Transition in PTE 9 but Image Crop places the centre point back in the middle of the cropped image and there appears to be no Canvas Crop option. Bearing in mind this is in the Creating A Transition option, is it possible to shift the centre point to the edge of the cropped image? I hope that makes sense. TC
  3. iPhone Commentary

    a Hi Barry, Try this link to Amazon https://www.amazon.co.uk/Blue-Microphones-Snowball-Omnidirectional-Microphone/dp/B000EOPQ7E Not used one but have colleague who uses a similar USB microphone from the Samson range and gets good results. https://www.amazon.co.uk/samson-usb-microphone/s?ie=UTF8&page=1&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Asamson usb microphone TC
  4. Show Animation In Slide List

    Hi Dave, I had assumed that was what it meant but looking more closely I can now see the difference. TC
  5. Hi, Can anyone explain the feature "Show animation in Slide list - This enables animation in the slide list so that moving a slide from one position to another is animated" as it doesn't appear to make any difference if the box is selected or not in the System tab of Preferences. TC
  6. Splitter With Custom Styles & Transitions

    Yes, I've used some of them before. I tend to show beginners the ones not requiring an image and then move on to using ones with an image and then using O&A to create their own.
  7. Splitter With Custom Styles & Transitions

    Thanks for the styles. I have been playing around with Text Templates earlier today repositioning and adding zoom and fade in and out. It works really well and can be a suitable alternative to create a title slide. TC
  8. Splitter With Custom Styles & Transitions

    Hi Dave, That is nearly the same as the Slide Style I have created. There is only a slight difference in the figures but virtually the same effect. I have now carried out the same process on the laptop and it works well. I am giving a presentation on Sunday and wanted to show off as many of the features as possible and have been working through them for a while. Really helpful, thanks again. TC
  9. Splitter With Custom Styles & Transitions

    Hi Dave, Many thanks, for some reason I was not getting the "Splitter for background objects" option. Now created Slide Style using this feature and is working OK I've been playing around with this most of the afternoon. Will now try on Laptop and hopefully get it to function there. Many thanks TC
  10. Splitter With Custom Styles & Transitions

    Hi Dave, Thanks for the reply. I Have used the right click option in O&A to no avail. The Main Image changes to Reference Image when I apply the Slide Style. It's baffling me! TC
  11. I am having trouble getting the Splitter feature to work with Custom Transitions and Slide Styles. I have created a Slide Style where the main image is set within a frame zooms for the full duration of the slide (10secs). There is a border (5px) around the frame and a drop shadow and the background is blurred (35%) with reduced opacity (70%) and a zoom of 105%. I have applied a Custom Transition that I have created making sure that the Use background from slide, Transparent background of slide and Dissolve are all selected. When applying the transitions there is no separation of the background image nor is it appearing as a dissolve. I am using version 9.0.7 with a Windows 10 PC. Can anyone help please? TC
  12. Missing File Name In Slide List

    Hi Dave, Once again thanks for your input. I guess it's all to do with expectations when you use the software. Having used "Change Image File" in the past and seeing the name change in the Slide List it was my expectation that when I Changed Image File in "Missing Images section the same thing would apply. It was also interesting that if you accept the change of image in the Missing File section then if you try and change Image File (Right Click dropdown menu) in this instance it still does not change the name of the image in the slide list! So I guess this is how it works and I appreciate your comments. Perhaps it might be something Igor will look at in the future. TC
  13. Missing File Name In Slide List

    Hi Dave, Thanks for the reply. I appreciate that you can use the approach you and Igor have suggested but that seems to defeat the object of having a feature to find missing files if all you have to do is close it down and do what you would have done in previous versions. Just as a matter of interest did you take a look at the video? TC
  14. Missing File Name In Slide List

    Hi, Somewhat disappointed not to receive a definitive reply to this query. I can only assume that if you use the "Missing File" feature in PTE 9 and select an alternative file then you have to manually change the file name in the Slide Options which seems to defeat the object of the exercise. Also if you have inadvertently changed a file name then again it will not be recognised in the Slide List and has to be changed manually in Slide Options. Even using the "Change Image File" when this happens fails to present the correct name in the Slide List. Perhaps someone might confirm that this is how the Missing File feature works.. TC
