GOAL: You are taking out all of the Mark’s animations and placing them individual slides and then saving that as a pdf. We do this so that anyone in the world can follow along without needing to have any special software. It used to be way harder than it is now. We found a program that *mostly* will do it, you just have to double check it.
Open Mark’s powerpoint from dropbox (I ‘shared’ this folder with you some time ago, but if you can’t find the credentials than I can send them again.)
“Save” it to the same folder with ‘decomposition’ in the name.
Command PPSPLIT to take out of all the animations. Truthfully, its been so long since I have done this, I don’t remember all of the commands etc, but if you get into trouble, just ask me. Sometimes Mark will do something in the animations that causes it to report and ‘error’ and that it can’t go any further. You have to manually do that slide and then start the PPTsplit program from the next one… This usually happens if Mark gets especially creative. We can pray that this month he donest. 😉
Save. The secret here is we don’t want to overwrite Mark’s original PPT. that’s why you saved it with decomposition. Other people, including Mark, sometimes use the original file. Go through the slides just to make sure that they look okay.
Now save the document as a pdf. All of this ‘saving’ has been done in the folder for the lesson for that week.
