Internal Hyperlink Fixer

PowerPoint 2003 used to handle pasted slides with hyperlinks properly and reset the links as required. Not anymore. PowerPoint 2007 and all subsequent versions no longer do that. This little add-in tries to address the problem to some extent. If you reuse slides with hyperlinks, this add-in can help detect potential misdirected links and address it if needed.

If you enjoy using my free addins, consider donating. Donations help keep the new add-ins, updates coming and help pay for the time spent maintaining and improving the software. Donations are entirely voluntary. But every donation is greatly appreciated.
