I recently got a PowerPoint-file (PPT) with approximately 20 pages. As some pages didn´t need to be translated I blinded them out, saved the file and created a new SDL 2011 project. I didn´t change any norm settings of the project.

And now to my problem:
The text I have blinded out earlier appeared nevertheless as editable text in the sdlxliff-file. Do I have to change some of the norm settings?

Many thanks in advance for your answers!

I am right now doing the same May 2, 2013

But I left everything as it was, and only translate the parts which have to be translated.
I just skip the parts which don't have to be translated (leaving the target segments empty).
When the sdlxiff file is backconverted, the old parts appear untranslated in the pptx file.
