Check for template updates

If you have a PowerPoint using an older version of a template and want to:

  1. See what version you are using
  2. Migrate to the latest version

Can I not have an option to ‘Check for Updates’ for the template, instead of starting a fresh new PowerPoint and importing the slides over?

Help me understand PowerPoint 2010 disabled options

The disabled options have me confused?

  1. Change the source file (from the original .avi you selected)
  2. Change the starting point (say start at 30 seconds)

I can see that those toolbar options are disabled (below) but I cannot see the reason.

Add captions for images

Microsoft Word currently supports attaching captions to embedded images, as seen in the following screenshot. This cannot be done with embedded images in Microsoft PowerPoint, however. It would be useful if users could add captions to PowerPoint images as well.
