PowerPoint SmartArt on import

Hi, I am still learning to manage the software and have imported a PowerPoint file that I created for a training course.  However all the SmartArt images are now "grouped pictures" and the elements within the graphic cannot be animated as individual components.  I would also like to be able to add states to some of the areas of the graphic.  Is there a way that the SmartArt graphic can be reverted back to SmartArt in storyline or not?

You would want to convert your smart art to individual objects in PPT first.  For example, in PPT, click in your smart art - choose Control-A to select all of the objects in the Smart Art.  Then I usually hide the Smart Art in the Selection Pane.

Control - V to paste the objects back on the slide.  It looks the same, but now they are inidividual grouped objects that you can import and then animate, edit, separately.

Hope that helps.
