microsoft.public.powerpoint - Microsoft Office PowerPoint
Using MS/Word 2003 I have a document with embedded Bookmarks of different colors (Red for outstanding, Green for completed, etc) linking to a table of Action Items. I would like the Bookmarks to take the user to the specific Action Item (that part is easy). But I do not want the original text with the Bookmark Hyperlink to change color. Currently the FollowedHyperlink Style is: Default Paragraph Font + Font: Palatino Linotype, Underline, Font color: Violet I tried Modifying the Font Color to be Automatic but that just makes the links black. Is there any way to turn off the reformatting of the Font that occurs for a FollowedHyperlink?
On another MS page a user wrote: "I'm using a Jeopardy game PowerPoint template in my class to review concepts. The hyperlinks work but they don't change color once they have been followed. I've tried several different techniques but can't get the followed link to change color unless I exit the SlideShow view and go back into Normal view. Does anyone have a solution for this problem?" I created this Jeopardy game [www.lynnembailey.com/ppt.com] back in 1998 actually, and I am investigating this problem. It's never been an issue in Office 2000, or 2003. Coincidently I got a new computer with a limited trial version and I tested it. Indeed the links do not change colors at all in show mode, but revert to the changed colors in edit (normal) mode. I created a new slide and a couple of new hyperlinks (both text and graphic box) and these only change colors if they've been clicked twice! This is a serious glitch and it's not fixed in Service Pack 1 either. What I did discover however, is that it plays perfectly in PowerPoint 2007 Viewer.
We don't often place any kind of links to websites in our PPT presentations so when I built our Themes I opted to not choose a color for either Hyperlink or Followed Hyperlink. That was apparently a mistake. Today, in preparing a Theme presentation, I attempted to place the text of some useful websites on a slide and they disappeared. I was unable to assign any color to them after they were copied and pasted onto the slide. I went back to Theme Builder and set both colors to black, reapplied the Theme and they now appear (in black) but I still can't apply a different color to them at all. The bullet in front of the text changes color, but not the text itself. I know some prefer to have the hyperlink text to be a different color...but we really don't want it to be that set off from the regular text. This isn't an issue for some of our Themes (I can match it to the color of the body text) but we have some Themes that have both light and dark backgrounds where the body text varies based on the background. It is getting to the point that we may have to split up our Themes so each has a single master, which I really would prefer not to do! Is this a "feature," a bug, or did I do something wrong when I set the Theme up. I REALLY wish there was some kind of documentation SOMEWHERE to help set up these Themes. I feel like I've got it somewhat down and then WHAMMO...the rug gets pulled out yet again. (and I am still having issues w/ Themes that have multiple masters. At this point I don't know where else I can go for help w/ them!) Christine
I have a powerpoint file, with hyperlinks on the first slide (main slide) linked to the succeeding slides, and back to the first slide. What Ie observed in Powerpoint 2007 is on the first click and back, it did not change the color of the hyperlinked text, upon clicking it the 2nd time and back, there it changed, compared with 2003 version, the hyperlinked text changes just in the first click and back. Please help. Thank you. Botete
