When doing translation of a table in PowerPoint file (after importing to DVX), after exporting it it is no longer a table but a set of text fields arranged to form a table (but in appearance only, when I want to move a table I have to move every field separately). Have you ever had such experience? Or is it something to do with settings?

A fake table? :-)) Aug 17, 2007

I guess it is not really a table but just an array of fields, which may adjust automatically to the new size of their content?

Maybe you can set their properties in the source file to not auto-adjust?
I don't know where, but I would try it via right-clicking on each field, or selecting them all (if possible) and then right-clicking.

Nope, real tables Aug 17, 2007

unfortunately they were real tables in the original. The fact is that it still looks as a table after exporting, so I could not care
What is also strange, after importing the order in DVX did not match the order in the original tables, for example table headings were last to translate.

Another guess is that the PP file may have been created in a different version of PP than the one installed on your computer.

I think I would either try to copy-paste the original table to the exported file, or if this would take too much time, tell the client about this problem and hope that he won't care either..
