I think their warnings for access is a standard CYA disclaimer. I don't worry about Bill :)Â Â Â
We will probably never know what kind of actual data they receive from us.
I do know that before I go to a workshop, I shop online for chain saws...Â Otherwise, when I show folks how to do an online search for bird wings, up pops pictures of the things I've been recently shopping for!Â

I chose to update my desktop OS to Mojave and I'm giving all the third party software and printers/scanners a test run.
This did not fix the PowerPoint PresenterView upside down film strip.Â I suspect that to do that will entail purchasing the upgrade to Office 365.Â
I am curious that both Office and Adobe wanted me to allow an APP to "provide access control to my computer".Â
This sounds quite invasive. Adobe even used the word "control"...Â
I searched online for what the "Microsoft AutoUpdate"Â did, and it was recommended.Â They can't update my Office 2011 anyway, but it was recommended for the Office 365.Â
It really bothers me when they want "control" of my computer.Â hmmmm.
Thank you very much,

[log in to unmask]">Keynote does a very good job of opening PPT files. Not perfect, I have seen rare instances of issues. It also exports pretty good PPT files. It can not make all it's effect work the same as in PPT, as keynote is a bit more sophisticated, but the basic stuff and some animations will convert. You will need to limit your font choices to ensure compatibility if you are moving the PPT to a PC for display. Video compatibility across platforms can be an issue. Keynote only works on a mac, and the older version can not open newer versions, if you have some machines on older OS and some on newer OS you could run into that issue.
Â I actually use Keynote to extract the image content of PPT files when I need to use the art in other situations.
