    How to update Adobe Presenter 8.01?


      I am trying to do presentations with animated inking on a tablet and the quality is so poor (I have to use ppt instead of pptx in the native inking). I have to convert them to images. I'm hoping that they work in presenter 8.02, but I can't figure out how to get an update. I found a link here earlier this afternoon, but searching does not give me the same link. I also can't find the FAQ - it might be there, but I can't seem to find presenter FAQs.

          Can you tell us the version of Presenter installed on your setup at this point of time.

          You can find the same by going to Presenter ribbon inside PowerPoint. Go to "Help > About Presenter" menu item. Let us know the build number mentioned in the dialog.


          Also to check if any updates are available for you, follow the menu "Help > Updates" inside Presenter ribbon.

          If any new update is available, you will get a notification in the upcoming dialog.


          Also can you explain the issue you are facing in detail. We can try and help you out.

            I was running 8.0.1. The update within the presenter ribbon did not report 8.0.2. Also, the 'Adobe Application Manager' does not seem to know about Adobe Presenter, so it reports no update. But I was finally able to update to 8.0.2 from another link that I found in the forum. It did not fix my issue with inking. Also, I have some issues with animating equations. Note that the inking issues are shown in the bottom links here. Please let me know if the prpkg package is what you need. My workaround is to convert these objects to pictures, and then they can be animated. This makes an extra step for every animation, plus they lose the ability to be edited.

            I have uploaded four files to my public dropbox. I am traveling and the hotel has a throttled e-mail, but dropbox is telling me that the file uploads were fast. Please let me know if these uploads show to you the bugs that I am working around.


            https://dl.dropbox.com/u/95983602/equation_bug_ppt.prpkg - this shows the equation bug when the file is in .ppt format. Some of the problems are due to incompatibility of the new MS equations with the .ppt format, I think, but there are other issues. You can hear in the audio a description of what I see during recording. The only way that works is to use MS 3.0 equations or MathType equations and paste images of the equations as shown in one of the slides at the end. It does not work to embed them.



            https://dl.dropbox.com/u/95983602/equation_bug_pptx.prpkg - this shows the equation bug when the file is .pptx format. None of the new MS equations are animated properly in the final SWF. You can tell from the audio that it looks OK during recording. The older MS 3.0 and MathType equations work only if they are embedded as images as you see if you look at one of the slides near the end.



            https://dl.dropbox.com/u/95983602/inking_bug_Package.prpkg - this shows that inking can be used on slides in .ppt format, but the visual quality is very low. It looks very unprofessional, even if video is set to lossless. Animation seems to make it worse, but I could not figure out for sure.



            https://dl.dropbox.com/u/95983602/inking_bug_pptx_Package.prpkg - this shows that inking does not AT ALL in the .pptx format.
