    Extracting Sound (2002)

    Hi,

    Once sound has been embedded into a PPT is there a way of extracting that sound file so you can use it in another PPT. Up until this point, I have been making a copy of the PPT that has the sound in it and then editing the slides.

    Thanks,
    Steve

    Try this:
    - Open both the source presentation and the target presentation in Normal view or Slide Sorter view
    - Select Window | Arrange All.
    - Select the sound object in the slide in the source presentation.
    - Copy it (Ctrl+C), then paste it into the appropriate slide in the target presentation.
    or
    - Drag the small outline of the slide containing the sound from the source presentation to the target presentation.

    Try File-->Save As WebPage. Your file will be saved as a series of folders with at least one HTML file and all the collateral stuff -- images, sounds, etc., saved separately.

    Re: Extracting Sound (2002)

    Thanks Hans, unfortunately I am unable to select the sound as an object as the sound was added within an animation/transition and as far as I can tell, is only visible from the Effect options command in custom animation and the sound drop down in the transition pane.

    Thanks for the suggestion. Any other thoughts are appreciated.
    Steve
