Now you can insert Flash movies in your PowerPoint 2007 presentations. If you are using an older version of PowerPoint, look here…

  1. Select the Developer tab of the Ribbon, and within the Controls group, click the More Controls button (see Figure 1).


    Figure 1: Click the More Controls option.

  2. This will bring up the More Controls dialog box that you can see in Figure 2. Select the Shockwave Flash Object option, and click OK.


    Figure 2: Select to place a Shockwave Flash Object control.

  3. The cursor will now turn into a crosshair, drag and place a control on the slide so that your control looks like what you can see in Figure 3.

  4. Now that you have placed the control, you need to link this to the Flash movie. I show you how to do that next…
