Un-flip - Corrective flip for images when older version presentations are opened in PowerPoint 2002

Purpose: Corrective flip for images when older version presentations are opened in XP. The add-in will perform the task correctly provided the presentation opened has not been saved previously under XP. PowerPoint XP resets the flip values when a save is performed hence this fix works only for presentations which haven't been saved in PowerPoint XP.


Installation instructions:

1. Extract the contents of the zip file to a folder
2. Launch PowerPoint.
3. Select Tools | Add-ins | Add new...
4. Locate the Un-flip add-in and select it.
5. An 'X' mark against 'Un-flip' should appear in the list of add-ins loaded.

If you cannot load an add-in in PPT2002/2003 then change the macro settings (Tools | Macros | Security) to MEDIUM.

How to do it...
1. Select Tools | Macros | Security on the security level tab, check MEDIUM.
2. Click on OK
3. Now load the Add-in as per the instructions.
4. Once the add-in has been loaded you can set the Security level back to HIGH


How to use:

1. Select Tools| Enable Corrective Flip to activate the add-in if not activated. A check mark appears beside the option if it is inactive.
2. Open the presentation created in earlier version.

3. Un-flip will correct the flip automatically and prompt the user, if any correction is done.

4. Save the presentation.
