I am wondering if anyone knows if Director can control
navigation from within PowerPoint?
I would like to place a Shockwave file in a PPTthat can link
to various slides throughout the same presentation it is in. That
way, I can have an animated/interactive navigation piece, but the
PPT slides can be updated/edited by anyone in the office.
When you say Shockwave do you mean web delivery? Your
question reads more like a Projector delivered project. There is no
way it can be done for the web, but for Projector the folowwing may
You might be able to use the VBScript xtra to achieve
something like your original aim, but it is likely to be an unholy
marriage. You would probably have better luck running ppt in a
window from within a Director shell using something like the
RavWare PPTview xtra. I've done something like this in the past
with adequate success.
Obviously the most stable method is to simply use PPT's own
navigation functions (ouch!!)
