Note that DOC or DOCX files cannot be incorporated into the database. If you wish to author a document in this format, you must convert it to PDF format before inclusion. Conversion can most easily be performed using the Microsoft 'Save As PDF' plugin which is freely available on the Microsoft Site.

 

The full version of Microsoft Office 'PowerPoint' is required if you wish to show 'PowerPoint' files in the Inspector Windowr. The system will not work with the 'Viewer' version of this program.

 

Depending on the version of 'PowerPoint' which you are using, you may also need to modify the Windows registry to permit successful display. A registry-modification script which will make all the necessary alterations has been included in the installation package. Refer to the section entitled 'Displaying PowerPoint Files' further information on this topic.
