pptPlex (Software Saturday)

A normal Microsoft PowerPoint 2007 presentation flows in a linear fashion. You can break the normal flow using hyperlinks in the presentation. This works perfect in most presentations. However, if you are presenting a lot of sections and also if you want to jump from one section to the other, then … well … there isn’t much you can do.

Unless you have pptPlex. pptPlex is a plug-in that explores an alternate method for presenting a PowerPoint slide deck. This plug-in allows you to arrange slides on a canvas then zoom between the slides during the presentation. You can move around the canvas and show groups of slides, individual slides, or even zoom in to show a particular section of a slide. The videos on the page give you a good idea of what pptPlex can do for you.

pptPlex installs a ribbon in PowerPoint that allows you to create and run the slideshow. The first time generation takes some time, so I suggest you run this at least once.
