Hi,

Could somone help and advise me about getting some PPT files into a word document. I had heard once that it was possible, but cannot retrieve the information. (there was some magic way of opening first (or second a Word file, then (or before the PPT file and something to do with Wordfast to make the text appear by magic on the Word doc...)
I have downloaded a software calle PPT helper, but cannot get the memory to work with it. It is a Wordfast memory.

I would be very grateful for any advice on the matter.

Anticipated thanks,

Claudette

Werecat Jun 28, 2010

Hi Claudette,

Werecat is a template for MS Word to help Wordfast users. Red Werecat extracts text from PowerPoint to Word. Blue Werecat extracts text from textboxes and similar objects (shapes) from Word documents.


You can download Werecat here.

Alternatively, you can use Wordfast Pro.

Kind regards,
Attila

Werecat/Wordfast pro for PPT Jun 28, 2010

Thank you Attila!

I have got Wordfast Pro, but am so familiar with Wordfast Classic that I have always dragged my feet at the thought of getting to use it. Of course, now that I need it, I will also need time...sigh.

What do you think is better, i.e. quicker: getting used to Werecat or to Wordfast Pro?

Claudette
