Powerpoint and Outlook

Is there anyway of importing a contact within Outlook to Powerpoint and so that it looks like a business card as in Outlook??

RE: Powerpoint and Outlook

Hi Sarah,

Thanks for using the forum

As Powerpoint is presentation software, there are ways of importing different objects into it, as a view without the functionality. How you would do this is Inset>Object and you can see the various options. However, Outlook is not listed, however another option to get the view of picture from Outlook to Powerpoint is simply to do a "Print Screen" whilst in Outlook and paste it into Powerpoint, from there you can crop it using the drawing toolbar, so you are left with the business card image.

I hope that helps

PowerPoint tip:

Getting animations to play in slide show view

If you have a presentation that you know contains animations, but they are not playing in slide show view, try the following:

1. Go to Slide Show - Set up Show.

2. In the 'Show options' section of the dialogue box that appears, check to see if the box next to 'Show without animation' has been checked.

3. Remove the check and click OK - you should now be able to see the animations play in slide show view.
