This is interesting to me as I just used Corel Presentations for the first
time this week.  I can't help with converting it to another format.  In
fact I'd like to know how to move a director file into Presentations.  If
she's using Corel she probably has the Word Perfect Suite and is a PC
person, Presentations is part of the suite.  One thing I have wondered
about is how the fancy backgrounds would translate from one program to the
next.  They may be importable as image files as backgrounds by themselves,
and then reassembled in PowerPoint.  On the other hand, it might be best to
have her save word slides as plain text, and then pick a similar background
already in PP.  She may also have to reassemble all of her images
separately in PP, after getting a close idea of what she wants in
Presentations.  Hope this helps a little and someone can answer both your
questions and mine.
