Adobe Connect and Office 2007

If you are using Powerpoint for Adobe Connect presentations, you may want to wait to upgrade to Office 2007.

Currently, Adobe Connect cannot upload and convert Powerpoint 2007 files. Files saved to the older 97-2003 format from Powerpoint 2007 will usually upload successfully. However, in 2007 Powerpoint templates have been replaced with themes (which use several files instead of a single file) and these do not convert successfully when uploaded to Adobe Connect.

If you have already converted to Office 2007 and you need to use a Powerpoint presentation in Adobe Connect:

  1. Use no theme (plain black text on a white background) or use the ISUE presentation template (this has been tested and seems to work reliably)
  2. Save your powerpoint presentation in 97-2003 format (Select Save As...Powerpoint 97-2003 presentation)

Note: 2003 templates will work in Powerpoint 2007 and will generally upload and convert in Adobe Connect, however, the template will display different colors in Adobe Connect than you will see in Powerpoint.
