PowerPoint Import (Beta)

You can import your PowerPoint-files (.pptx, .ppt, .odp) to Seidat from Seidat's dashboard. The PowerPoint-import is in beta mode, which means that the presentation is imported as images. More functionality (images as separate, text editable, etc.) will be added to the import-feature later.


Important notes

  • If you are using custom fonts (i.e. Google Fonts) in your PowerPoint you have to embed the fonts to the presentation you are importing. If any custom fonts are used and they are not embedded, the fonts will be converted into default fonts in Seidat and the result might look different from the original. Read how to embed fonts to PowerPoint here.
