    Powerpoint Not pulling text for outline (97)

    Have a powerrpoint presentation, but it does not seem to be pullng the text from the presentation into the Outline view. Anyone have any ideas why it would do this? I have stuff on each slide set as bulleted lists, etc...

    Any ideas? Am I missing something?

    Pulled the presentation up in PPT XP, got same result. Do I have to turn on Outlining somewhere? It has always previously just pulled all the text automatically.

    The Outline seems to work primarily with the Placeholders in the Master Slide. If text is placed in other kinds of text boxes, the Outline feature doesn't seem to pick them up. I don't know if there is a quick fix for this. When I have inherited presentations with this problem in the past, I concluded that I didn't need the Outline. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
