PowerPoint fans and community, we’re excited to announce that the PowerPoint team will be taking applications to participate in the Office 2010 Technical Preview program. We will be sending out a limited number of invitations to download and install the Office 2010 Technical Preview in early July.
For you, this is a first opportunity to experience the new, exciting features that we’ve been working on in PowerPoint. For us, this is an opportunity to get valuable feedback and early testing on PowerPoint 2010 that will directly impact our public beta later this year. We want testers of all shapes, sizes, and backgrounds; so long as you use PowerPoint, we’d love to have you give us a test drive.
If you’re interested, go here to sign up for Microsoft Connect and apply to be part of the Technical Preview. When asked, select PowerPoint as the application you’re most interested in testing (Question 13 on the survey). Thank you for signing up and helping us test out our latest creations!
So the "no undo" is one of the exciting new features? :)
I've signed up for Connect but cannot find where I can apply. Can you help?
Can't wait to see this however I am a little scared of a another new version of Powerpoint. Our PowerPoint 2007 training bookings have only just passed PowerPoint 2003 bookings. I hope 2010 is similar to 2007 in layout at least.
Patrick - What do you mean by "no undo"? Training Connection - Yes, we will be continuing with the Ribbon layout and tried to keep most of our commands in the same places when possible. 2007 was a big departure and change for us from 2003.
In PowerPoint 2010 can you burn
a presentation to a DVD?
RE: Burning DVDs. There's not a specific command to burn DVDs from within PowerPoint, but you'll find several new features that will help you create content suitable for mastering as a DVD in any number of DVD creation applications. Thanks,
-Ric Ric Bretschneider
Btw, is collaborative editing supported without SharePoint? Is SharePoint required? If yes, then that takes away one feature for non-enterprise users. :-(
I have used PP 2000 for years just purchased 2007 with the hope that by now Microsoft would have upgraded it with the ability to embed audio (music) files such as mid mp3 or wma feel I have wasted my $. Would like to lknow if 2010 will include this feature?
if not then would someone explain why not?
@DorisW PowerPoint 2010 will embed your audio and video files by default. Check out this post for more details:

Well I tried PP2010 on Windows 7 and not crazy about the click and run download style...Was not able to insert audio files that would play back tried midi and mp3..same as all other versions it will play Wave files when placed in the transition ribbon. when I clicked on file to get the backstage options, it did not give me the option buttons for optomize media compatability nor the option to reduce size. Where do I go to find a solution. Thanks
Doris W - Sorry to hear you're running into these problem, it's very unexpected for us to hear that you can't insert MIDI or MP3 files. Are you getting any error messages and are these files working in Windows Media Player? Feel free to email me back at allhuan at microsoft DOT com. Thanks,
Hello, I really enjoy Powerpoint 2010 except for one fatal thing: it refuses to play audio in my videos. Once I embed them, they will not play audio most of the time. One some videos (VOB, mpg, or mov -- tried them all) it works, but it's not consistent. I REALLY need the audio to work in the videos since I plan the worship services at my church! All the videos work in Media player immediately. Nothing is muted; the volume is turned up. The video will work . . . but no sound. I cannot describe my frustration and panic. Please help. I've tried to let Office "Repair" itself, but that was useless. Thanks,
Looking for a solution to these audio playback problems. My computer actually records the file but it will not play them back (no sound) They do play back on my Mac nut in windows 7 where I create teh file I get nothing. Why.
When I record a narration, it will not play back in PPt but when I export it to wmv, the recording works. Any ideas why?
