Save As Webpage dialog box missing in PowerPoint 2010

April 28, 2013

The options to save a presentation as a webpage are not available in the Save As dialog box in PowerPoint 2010


To work around this issue, you can save presentations as an .htm file or as an .mht file by using the PowerPoint object model. This method provides compatibility with older add-ins and macros.

You can also save a file as a webpage (*.htm;*.html) to the desktop without embedding True Type fonts (msoFalse) by using the ppSaveAsHTML argument for the *.htm file format. To do this, follow these steps:

In PowerPoint 2010, open the presentation that you want to export to HTML.
Press Alt+F11.
Press Ctrl+G.
In the Immediate pane, type the following, and then press Enter:
ActivePresentation.SaveAs “<Drive>:\users\<username>\desktop\<filename>.htm”, ppSaveAsHTML, msoFalse

Note To save by using the Single File Web Page (*.mht;*.mhtml) file format, replace htm at the end of the file name with mht, and replace ppSaveAsHTML with ppSaveAsWebArchive.

Office 2013 now transferable

March 7, 2013

Jevon Fark, Office Team, 06 Mar 2013

While the license agreement accompanying Office 2013 software will be updated in a future release, this change is effective immediately and applies to Office Home and Student 2013, Office Home and Business 2013, Office Professional 2013 and the standalone Office 2013 applications. These transferability options are equivalent to those found in the Office 2010 retail license terms. The updated text is as follows:

Updated transferability provision to the Retail License Terms of the Software License Agreement for Microsoft Office 2013 Desktop Application Software:

Can I transfer the software to another computer or user? You may transfer the software to another computer that belongs to you, but not more than one time every 90 days (except due to hardware failure, in which case you may transfer sooner). If you transfer the software to another computer, that other computer becomes the “licensed computer.” You may also transfer the software (together with the license) to a computer owned by someone else if a) you are the first licensed user of the software and b) the new user agrees to the terms of this agreement before the transfer. Any time you transfer the software to a new computer, you must remove the software from the prior computer and you may not retain any copies.

Once installed & activated, Office 2013 could not be moved, even to another new computer owned by the customer. Instead, the customer would need to purchase another copy of Office 2013 for the new computer.
