PowerPoint: PICT Graphic Causes Genigraphics PostScript Error PSS ID Number: Q58803 Article last modified on 01-09-1991 PSS database name: M_PowerPt




If graphics are created in a PICT drawing program and then imported into a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation, a PostScript warning message may be encontered when outputting to a Genigraphics file. This is because certain tools in some PICT drawing programs, such as the bezier curve tool in Canvas by Deneba Software, generate PostScript code that is embedded into the PICT data. When printing a file containing these graphics to Genigraphics, a warning appears saying that these slides contain PostScript graphics.

PostScript is not currently supported by Genigraphics slide-making services. If you want high-quality results, avoid using graphics that contain PostScript.
