Working with the PowerPoint Viewer
When preparing a presentation that you will send out into the world, whether through
e-mail, on CD, or on the Web, you never know what will happen to it or how people will end
up viewing or even changing it. This can be a little unnerving!
In this chapter, you will learn how to protect your privacy by removing personal information from
a PowerPoint fi le. You will also learn how to ensure that the presentation contains nothing that
will be incompatible with an earlier version of PowerPoint. And you will learn how to distribute a
presentation as a PDF fi le, on CD or DVD, or as a video clip on a web page or attached to an e-mail
message.
Working with File Properties
The properties of a fi le include fi xed attributes such as its creation date and size as well as proper-
ties that you can edit, such as the author name, keywords, subject, and comments. Some of these
variable properties are also referred to as metadata — literally, data about data.
