Get Charts Edited By Older Versions Of PowerPoint (PP)
If you are saving presentations to an older format of PP, and then having trouble editing them in the older version? When charts are saved as default, they are still in the new PP's format not the old, so you have to change one option. For example:
- In PowerPoint, open a presentation and choose Tools, Options and click the Save tab.
- On the Save tab, select the option Convert Charts When Saving As
- Then, click OK. Now save your presentation again to
the appropriate previous version of PowerPoint.
Note: Keep in mind, when you use the Convert option, your chart may lose various features that are not supported in the older versions of PP. To save to a previous-version format, choose File, Save As. In the Save As dialog box, choose the version you want to save to from
the Save As Type drop-down list box. Finally, give the presentation a
different name and save it.
