Have a favorite PowerPoint slide that you’d like to add to your Digideck?  The Digideck PowerPoint Add-in makes it quick and easy to insert your favorite PowerPoint content straight into a Digideck Presentation or Master Deck. 

Simply select which slides to send to Digideck and choose where you want them to appear.  You can insert new slides, update existing ones, or just add them to your Digideck Image Gallery for future use. To get started, choose Get Add-ins from the Insert menu inside PowerPoint and install the free Digideck Add-in from the Microsoft Office Add-In Store. Once installed, you’ll find the Digideck icon inside your Home menu in PowerPoint.  Or, you can try downloading the Add-in directly from Microsoft here.

When adding a new slide, your content will appear as a static full image slide in Digideck (custom fonts, video, animations and 3D/reflected shapes are not currently supported).  

Once you’ve added a slide to Digideck, you will be able to continue making edits by updating your PowerPoint file and sending the updated slide content to Digideck using the same Add-in.

TIPS For Best Results:

The Export to Digideck Add-in is currently in Beta release.  We are continuing to work through ideas and issues raised by our initial users to improve the product.  We will provide updates within this article. 

By default, the add-in exports the contents of your slide with a transparent background.  This allows you to create slides with a single graphic that can be inserted into the Image Gallery, then used in any image location in your deck.  If you want to reproduce the look of your full slide with the same background, you may choose to place a box with your background color behind your slide content before you export, which will eliminate the transparent background.

Some fonts may not currently pass through to Digideck.  If you see this issue, consider changing your font, font size or text box size to ensure your full content will be visible in your finished slide.

If your custom graphics do not transfer to the Digideck as you expected, consider simplifying the design to remove 3D effects and other shape transformations and try again.

We've also seen an issue with some SVG graphics that have been copied and pasted from other programs not appearing in Digideck.  Until this issue is resolved, you can save the SVG file and use PowerPoint's insert image functionality to place it on the slide, or consider a different image format.
