Packaging for CD

One additional feature of PowerPoint 2007 that you might find useful is the ability to package your presentation to be burned to CD. Storing your presentation on CD makes it easy to share and archive. But in the past, burning a presentation to CD was less than user-friendly. Today, even with charting and graphics that included imbedded information from other sources, you can save a CDready file, or burn your presentation to CD with the click of a button. Here is how.

  1. Once you have completed your presentation select Office button and then click Publish> Package for CD. The Package for CD dialog box appears.
  2. Select the desired options: name your CD, select any additional files that you want to save, and then click the Options button. (Don't worry about embedded files; the program handles that.)
  3. In the Options menu, you can select the Presentation Type, select the Include these files options, and set Security and privacy.
  4. When you have made your selections, click to either save the finished file or burn it to CD, and you are done.
