I'm trying to use WinAlign in Trados 2007 to Align a Power point presentation. It seems that in the "New Align Project" window, under the general tab and file type that the option to select .ppt files is missing along with a bunch of other file types. Does anyone know how to get these working?

Thanks for any help.

WinAlign and PPT Jun 27, 2008

I see ppt in the list so I'm just supposing that perhaps you have a demo of the software, because WinAlign does support even .ppt files... and a lot of others

Bye

I have the full licensed version of the software. One of my collegues has the program installed and he has the options but I don't. The setup to the program was pretty straight forward and I don't see how some of the file types installed and others didn't. Is there anything I can do short of trying to re-install the program over again?

I fixed it. I don't know how it got missed in the installation process but you have to copy the "c:\douments and settings\all users\application data\sdl international\filters" folder from a working system to the bad installation.

In SDL Trados 2007 synergy, you see the instruction to set filters of many file types.
Do not forget to reset filters for your *.ppt files if you felt installation process of the program was incomplete.

Cheers,
