I have noticed that when you import a powerpoint presentation you are not able to import the Powerpoint as written. Such as when a slide transitions from one to another. (example: some one has written a powerpoint to where each point comes up on the same slide after selecting next slide.)

Hey Bryan,

This is for MediaShout 7, correct? If so, this is true. When you bring it in, you can then apply those same transitions within MediaShout. I believe they are working to improve this as we move forward to potentially allow that to get brought over as well.

It goes BEYOND transitions. Trying to import ANY Powerpoint program destroys all the pagination, text, format the whole works. At lease we can use ver 6 with PPT 2010. I'm not using version 7 right now after PAYING scarce money to upgrade to 7.0 strictly because I can't run a repeating Announcements spool and can hardly read all the menu items on the ribbon topside. Whoever chose grey for that must have waaay better eyesight than I do. Personally, I feel you launched ver 7 too early in the development stages and have too many shortfalls to work out. As I said, I play with ver 7.0 at home but run ver 6 at church. Any plans to launch an improvements push any time soon?

Hey Murray,

I see. Are you making sure that the PowerPoint is setup in the same Aspect Ratio as MediaShout? And, can you send us the PowerPoints that you are having trouble with so we can test with them? I am not seeing this on my side.

What issues are you having with repeating Announcements? That should work just fine.

Yes, we do plan to have a Light Theme coming soon.

We just released a very good update last week ( Did you get the email and install the update? It is available on the website www.mediashout.com/download
