    Drop Shadow all the way around object

    This option is new to me, can sosmeone explain just how this drop shadow is created? Can it also be made into a style?

    Incredible Software

    Find the time! Even if only to create basic slide shows of you and your family, you will be so glad you did.

    SCgurl, Go to this site https://www.wnsoft.com/en/picturestoexe/ and download the free trial version of PTE. You will not be disappointed, it is a brilliant application for creating slide shows. If you are new to Audio Visual and need some help with creating slide shows with PTE, you will find plenty of help from members of this forum. I have written a tutorial on 'How to Make your first Slide Show' that you can download (totally free of charge) from my website by clicking on the link below, http://ronniewestphotography.com/ Then go to the to the 'Tutorials Index' page and look in the 'PicturesToExe Tutorials' section and look for the Slide Show 'Making your first slide show'

    Does PTE need a name change

    I agree that the addition of 'EXE' in the program name might be a problem for some and may well be stopping them from downloading this excellent software. Maybe it would be a good idea if we could suggest some other names for Igor to consider?

    Not embarrasing at all! Even expert users can miss the obvious

    New user question

    Dave, Your link does not work on my MAC, any chance of an mp4? Ron

    Do you burn DVD video in PTE?

    Back in the day, I used DVD and CD very often and PTE was very good. However I am now getting older and now use MP4 all of the time. The more modern computers do not include cd or dvd drives and my guess is that DVD will fall into disuse completely quite soon. I support leaving Video Builder on PTE at its current version for those users who still use it but, no need to update it. GET ON WITH WITH GETTING THE MAC VERSION OF PTE UP AND RUNNING PLEASE! Ron.

    What is a Slide Style

    I have not really tried to use Slide Styles yet so cannot comment. Are there any tutorials available on how to use them?

    Backup to Zip issue

    Thankyou Jill, I should have been able to work that out but am at an age where the memory is playing tricks!

    Unhandled Exception notification

    Igor, This exception first appears in PTE when I am setting the Project Options. I set all options OK, but when I finally get to the point of pressing the 'OK' button, the exception box then appears. I can then go no further. Ron West.

    Unhandled Exception notification

    It happens every time I attempt to start a new slide show. Especially when I am creating a new folder structure in the Windows 10 Explorer. I do not have the problem when working on my Windows Laptop, so it might be a vmWare problem and not PTE!

    Unhandled Exception notification

    I am running pte 9.0.20 in a vmWare Fusion virtual machine and this morning encountered this problem. Anyone know the reason for this please?

    Backup to Zip issue

    'always makes a BIZ of his shows under construction' I saw the above in a recent question, excuse my ignorance, but what is a 'BIZ' please? Ron.

    What does this mean?

    Update - I am beginning to think that the intro slide show by Barry, might have something to do with this problem. I don't need to have it on my computer anymore, how can I remove it? Ron West.
