Perhaps you should consider doing it the other way around.I'll be giving my dissertation defense talk in a few weeks, presented with Powerpoint. I have several Mathematica notebooks to show (mainly for animations). I just put a hyperlink to the notebooks on some text on a ppt slide, and launch MathReader. "Other" graphics couldjust appear on different slides. You could launch Acrobat from Powerpoint as well, and not use Mathematica as your "presentation engine". > Being able to summon up, say, a .pdf file in a Mathematica-based > presentation is infinitely valuable as a time saver! > > -- > Murray Eisenberg murray at math.umass.edu > Mathematics & Statistics Dept. phone 413 549-1020 (H) > Univ. of Massachusetts 413 545-2859 (W) > Amherst, MA 01003-4515 Bill Campbell
