Hi guys, I've got sick of trying to second guess what size my flash files should be when I import them into PowerPoint, so I decided to put this excel spreadsheet together to calculate it for me. There's probably something bigger and better out there that already does this, but I thought I'd share it anyway.
To use it, enter the PPT size into the width and height fields, and it calculates the size of the flash file (approximately) that will fit in that area.
You'll need to use the line guides to do this as to calculate the width and height in ppt, I take two lines, write down their value (shown when you drag the line like below) and add them together.
I've tested it and it appears to work pretty well - it'll sure make it easier when I'm building new flash content for my training now!! no more resizing after insertion, which is better for the image quality too! If you have any suggestions for improvements let me know. I think eventually I will stick it on a website somewhere, but I need to build one first!!!
