Error 'online presentations aren't supported' in Articulate Presenter

Oct 04, 2022

I would like to use Articulate Presenter to create a training based on a Powerpoint slide deck. However, when I click any of the Articulate buttons in Powerpoint (Quizmaker, Engage etc.) I receive an error message that 'online presentations aren't supported. Save a copy to your local drive to continue'.

In my organisation all our local drives are moved to the cloud, so I can only use OneDrive to store files. How can I solve this issue?

Hi Inge, 

One of the requirements of Presenter 360 is for the presentation file to be saved locally somewhere on your computer before you can begin making changes to it: 

Try moving your presentation to a local directory on your machine to see if this helps!

Is there any version of Studio that can be compatible with PPT. If it's irreplaceable I don't know of an app similar to Studio. Please let me know if you know.

Hello Mindy, 

If all of your folders are backed up to OneDrive, you'll need to reach out to your IT staff to ask them if they can disable the syncing for one of the folders. This should do the trick.

If this isn't an option, please open a case with our support team here so we can find another workaround for you!
