Hello Ken! OUCH! You just trapped on my foot! I am one of those Mac persons! Just Kidding!! Seriously the wait on the Mac version has been a long one and I myself have been in great need of it and miss it greatly since last year. I really like the "family" connection here on this forum and the help so graciously given here too. I really appreciate it when some here keep us in the loop by posting Mac Versions of their presentations. Thanks Bill

WELL BILL

IMHO

I sure would not have dumped my Windows system till the Mac version was wrung out for at least 6 months, i would have maintained both systems for your customer's sake alone

-- i think there are a few more windows systems in the world

-- the virus writers dont even bother trying to write a virus for MAC's - there are not enough of them to upset anybody -- my mac friends say why do you send us info about viruses Mac's dont get em! they laugh at windows users and the money they have to spend for virus protection :(

Hello Ken! Great to hear from you. If my office was bigger I would of considered your suggestion. I have since been building DVD presentations with Fotomagico Pro 3.5 (very good but lacks layering) and Mac's Keynote 09 which has satisfied our clients very much but I know I can do more with Wnsoft. Yes, currently there doesn't seem to be a need for an anti-virus software for those of us who have Macs BUT as you say we are a much smaller percentage in the computer world and I am sure someone could come up with something destructive. I had used PCs for quite a few years and was quite comfortable with them and actually worked on some of the computers belonging to my appliance customers whom I service. I think it is great to have such good choices but for me the Mac OS just works so well and its function and design seems so natural to my thinking. Wishing you well! Bill

Lately I have had quite a few questions asking me about PTE fully working on a Mac and another came in this morning via email.

I usually say that it is not likely until 2011, but that is only my guess. While appreciating I am asking an almost possible question, are you able to give a best guess so that the infor I pass on is from you, rather than me.

why not just run Windows on your mac and use PTE? Who knows when the Mac version will happen or how good it will be. I think Igor said it won't do everything the Windows version does.

Isnt anyone there to reply me :D

==================

I gave it a look but it beats me!!! I can add new text to the black background and it shows up fine. If I add text as a child to one of your text blocks (that does not show up), it also does not show up. Why your text is not showing up is a mystery. I guess, the best way to overcome this problem is to dump the text you have and add it again, and it should show up, as it did in my test??? (V6.5)

AbdolReza,

Having studied your project file my conclusion is that the problem must be caused by the text content. What happens if you delete one "character" at a time from the script? Does the script, at some point, then become visible?

Also, in response to your ask about anyone there... be aware that, in western culture, the weekend (the days we name as Saturday and Sunday) are traditionally days of leisure that we spend with our families and friends, and not at our places of work or at or computers.

regards,

Peter

AbdolReza,

Peter is correct in his statement when he says "my conclusion is that the problem must be caused by the text content."

My review of your .pte internals ... reveals that you are using Unicode characters in combination with ANSI characters. Unicode text characters cannot be used since the .pte file is a ANSI text format document.

In your effort to duplicate the text and slides ... you have also duplicated the errors.

Fix Note:

Remove the problem text objects completely ... and use just ANSI text characters. Use of any Unicode text characters will repeat your text error issue.

-Even some of your slide names and object names appear to have Unicode text characters.

-Your PTE file also says it was built in v6.5 Beta 15.

Yes, I see that some problem with text exists there. Probably it's because specific symbols. We'll try to find the reason.

AbdolReza,

We found a reason of the text issue in your project. The total duration of your show (13 slides) is about 160 hours (one week). Whereas PicturesToExe can handle a project which not longer than 138 hours. Theoretically I can rework the program to increase these limits, but will it has any practical sense?

Please could you tell why you set 13 hour's time interval between slides? You can simply use "Wait for a key press or mouse click to show next slide" option, if I understand rightly your purpose. And adjust "Time range" parameters for objects to recover values in your existing project.
