Creating a CD Presentation Package
Figure 20-23 Here you can add or remove presentations to include in the package. Use the
arrow buttons to determine the order in which the presentations appear on the menu that
Power Point generates.
The open presentation appears as one of the files to be copied to the CD. Click Add to
select additional presentations or other files. You can add files of any type to a CD package.
Each file you include gets a link on the menu that PowerPoint creates for the CD package.
Other options you can change here include the CD name. The name you specify is used as
the volume name if you copy the files to a CD, so it has a maximum length of 16 characters.
(This limitation applies even if you save the package to a folder.) Nonetheless, try to come
up with a meaningful name (like “Sales demos” or “SmithFamily2010”), which helps to
identify the disc when you examine it in Windows Explorer. The name also appears as the title in
the package menu. If you save the package to a folder, PowerPoint proposes to use the CD
name as the folder name, although you can override this suggestion.
Click Options to specify whether linked files and embedded fonts should be included in the
package. The Options dialog box, shown in Figure 20-24, also includes options to require a
password to view or edit the presentations in the package.
Figure 20-24 By default, linked files and embedded fonts are included, and no password
protection is applied.
