I see there is quite a lot about problems with Powerpoint on this forum. Thinking our issues arose because the laptop was quite old, we bought a new one, so we now have Windows 10 and Powerpoint 2016. Unfortunately we have similar problems to before. Powerpoints don't load, in fact Open LP freezes. Re-start the program and then it might load, or not. This is with a few test PPs of 2 screens of text - so not a big file! Happens with ppt and pptx.
Seems to work better with Powerpoint Viewer, but not always. Considering that Powerpoint must be used a great deal, I'm surprised that it has not been possible to resolve these issues. I realise the developers are volunteers, but Windows 10 and Powerpoint 2016 have been around for a while now, so I would have thought Powerpoint issues might have been resolved.
Any ideas or suggestions welcome. I love the program in other respects, but this is a major inconvenience.
