PowerPoint Version and Problems

By techwritergirl ·
I write about Microsoft PowerPoint and support end users of PowerPoint when necessary. Our Mac users are on 2004, and we have a mixture of 2000/2002/2003 users for Windows. I wonder what versions most other techs are supporting, why they aren't upgrading if they aren't, and if there are common problems you resolve repeatedly.

2000

by jdmercha In reply to PowerPoint Version and Pr ...

I support PowerPoint 2000. I have had no reason to upgrade, though I think I might go ahead an do it next year. We may all be on 2000 but some users have 2003 at home. We will also get 1003 presentaions form the outside.

The most common problem I run into is that themes and templates available in 2003 are not available in 2000.

In our environment content is way more important then presentation. If the graphics don't look quite right, it's no big deal.

97, Moving to 2003

by CharlieSpencer In reply to PowerPoint Version and Pr ...

We don't have very many PP users; in fact, there are so few I don't hear of any problems. Most of our presentations are updates of previous ones; rarely is a completely new one created.

We're in the process of migrating from O97 to O2003. Until now, we haven't had a business reason to pay Bill Gates for new versions of software when we don't use most of the features in the 97 version. The migration is being driven by lack of support for 97 and compatibility with other companies in our corporation.

I'm sometimes think PP should be marketed like Visio, Project, or FrontPage: not part of the default suite, but integrated when installed as an option. I wonder what percentage of users who have Office actually use PP as anything other than a reader. I'm guessing less than 10 percent.
