Dear All,

There is a strange glitch in my Tageditor and when I try to open some powerpoint files, the programme "stops working". It does not happen all the time, and I have not yet identified the problem.

However, in the past a friend has been able to open the same powerpoint files with her Tageditor, and then send me the .ttx file to work on.

This friend is away at the moment (can you see where this is going...!).

Would anyone be kind enough to offer to receive the ppt file by email, open it in their Tageditor, save it as .ttx, and then send me the .ttx file?

This would be greatly appreciated, as the translation is due first thing tomorrow morning (problem only just discovered as I have been in bed all day with a cold and therefore having to work during the evening in order to meet the deadline).

Many many thanks in advance.

Wendy

Hope this glitch will not prevent you to convert back to .PPT, Wendy...

@Laurent

Strangely, that has never been a problem. It has only ever happened when making the first conversion.

Would you be able to help? Unfortunately the same thing has happened with the first offerer, it simply forces Tageditor to close.

I can have a try at it Oct 15, 2009

if you wish.
What's the exact deadline? Contact info on http://www.krauland.tel

This may also be a corrupted PPT file.

Thank you, Maria, for your kind offer.

The problem has now (thankfully) been resolved and I am able to work on the file as normal.

I greatly appreciate this show of comradeship for a stranger, it is very kind of you all.

Wendy

Please do not make e-mail addresses public! Oct 16, 2009

Hi folks

This is off topic, but...

When offering help - as here - please do not enter your e-mail address in the forum, for security reasons.

The present problem has been solved, but to protect your privacy, Moderators must remove all posts with e-mail addresses, also in future.

You can be contacted via your profile, and your e-mail address is not revealed to the person mailing you unless you choose to answer.

Thanks for your understanding!

is it really necessary to "remove" a couple of postings?
Why not just delete the email address?

OT/FYI Oct 16, 2009

I never gave my e-mail address on a forum, neither here nor elsewhere. As per privacy protection and spam, I now receive unsolicited e-mails through my private address - this is probably due to the fact that I created a mailing list.

Why are email adresses allowed in profiles?

Hi Aniello,

Anyone posting their e-mail address in public in the forum is given an opportunity to edit the post to remove the e-mail address.

Hope this helps to clarify the matter. The issue here is site users' own protection.


Best regards,

Astrid

Some advice Oct 17, 2009

Hi all,

If you want to write your own address to help others, so that spammers cannot find it, you can use following formats:

1) username at domain dot com (and NOT username@domain.com)
2) email address -- You can do this with following script:
email address
3) or you can ask them to contact you via your profile page. This is the most preferable way.

Kind regards,
Maya
