    Slide / Outline Bar on wrong side? (PPT 2002)

    The slide/outline bar in the presentation attachment is on the right hand side, where as any new presentation I create has the slide/outline bar on the left hand side (which is the standard!)
    I cannot move the position of the bar (I've tried dragging it like the task bar, but it won't budge!). Why is this so? How did it get that side? Any ideas!
    Regards,
    Rudi

    PS : I was thinking about this and suddenly saw that the design template entry on the status bar give (Arabic) text. The writing is usually from right to left. Would this be the cause of this slide bar being on the right??

    It's Hebrew, actually, not Arabic. This is from the online help:
    <hr>Move the Outline and Slides tabs

    The feature described in this Help topic is only available if support for Arabic or Hebrew is enabled through Microsoft Office Language Settings.

    On the View menu, point to View Direction, and then do one of the following:
    To move the Outline and Slides tabs to the right side of the presentation window, click Right-to-Left.
    To move the Outline and Slides tabs to the left side of the presentation window, click Left-to-Right.

    Note: If you are using the Arabic or Hebrew version of Microsoft PowerPoint, the Outline and Slides tabs automatically appear to the right of the presentation window.<hr>
    The View | View Direction menu item is only available if your system supports Arabic/Hebrew.

    Thanx for your efforts yesterday to get this answer for me Hans. I appreciate it.

    It seems my system does not support Arabic/Hebrew, as my View menu does not have the View Direction command. But your reply answers the question I needed and I am awre of the feature now!

    Thanx for the time you took to help!
    Seems I got so affixed on the task at hand that I forgot about PPT help too! <img src=/S/blush.gif border=0 alt=blush width=15 height=15>
