Software News   Software News : Point Rider Status Update!

Inheritage of objects from master slide

It may seem to be a minor information but some whole slides are based on common objects put in the master slide. If this feature is not supported, the slides are quite desert ! Inherited objects from master give a look that is much more professional.

I consider all major features are now there. So why PointRider is still not available ? I have to fix some transparency issues, to check text properties, ... and of course to fix many bugs and asserts coming from side effects implementing the new features.

From 2 years, you know : a huge test session will be made but hopefully all tools are working well, with scripts to display PPS files automatically and recursively in directories. And I don't forget I have to update the converter to Hollywood projects. And maybe a MUI launcher.

Have a nice Christmas time, the gift will come a bit later !

PointRider is the only PowerPoint viewer for Amiga, obtained by looking into this proprietary format during so many hours. I found some help with projects like Laola or Antiword to understand OLE and a small documentation on the PowerPoint format.

Thanks for the info. I'll wait patiently for the newer version.
Point Rider is a great application, I use it almost every day.

Thank you all, it's important to know people enjoys ! And nice to see some users looking at the website

I recently tried the old version (the last public one, sorry) and it looked ugly. Now that interpolation is used for image scaling, the quality is much better. I will publish comparative pictures.

I hope to release the new version for you soon.

Used it for the first time last night.
(I now have OS4.0 on my classic, thanks and well done all involved)
Was impressed how well it worked.
Even happier now I know development is still ongoing.

Cheers and good luck.

Thanks for the continued dedication! This is an excellent piece of software, very useful as I'm able to watch most powerpoints people send me via email, and it's really nice to hear that it's still being worked on and getting improvements.
