Part VIII: Appendixes > Dealing with Error Messages and Prompts

Dealing with Error Messages and Prompts

Problems may arise with your PowerPoint presentation during the development, editing, printing, or saving process, and the goal of this appendix is to give you some ideas for what to expect and how to handle these problems if and when they occur.

Many PowerPoint problems announce themselves in the form of an error message that appears when you attempt to issue a command or perform some task. Others are more subtle—the command you want to use is dimmed, the graphic you want to rotate won't. When an error message occurs—although frustrating—it does give you more information about the nature and cause of the problem. Take advantage of this additional information, and react to it logically and cautiously. When an error message appears onscreen in PowerPoint or any application, read it carefully, and make a written note of when it happened and what you were doing at the time.
