I run a conference every year and with many conferences, there are tons or PowerPoint presentations. Typically we have every presentors notes and slides printed out so the big wigs can follow along during the conference. Instead of lugging around 10 or so of these gigantic binders, I have decided to go the route on an iBook since they all have iPads. I cannot get it to work and this is what I have done so far:
I have exported the slides and notes from PowerPoint into Word.
Removed all formatting from the new Word document
Tried to import the Word doc directly into iBooks Author and the slide images did not show up properly
I opened the Word doc in Pages (where the images show up properly)
Saved the Word doc as a Pages doc
Tried to import the Pages doc and everytime I do (no matter what the document) I get an "The document ______ couldn't be found, The document has been moved or deleted" error.
The pages doc is on my desktop and I am able to reopen it in pages
I have also tried to add just all the text in a scrolling sidebar and I guess there is a length limit because I only get about a third of the notes. The reason I did that is because I was going to use the Keynote widget and then just have the notes scrolling by it.
I also import a Pages or Word document in black pages. Does it really have to be only as a Section or a Chapter?
I am trying to save a ton of time, money, and trees by not printing these books but I am at my wits end with IBA. Can someone add any support or insight? I hate thinking that Apple has released an absolute garbage program but I cannot get it to do anything it says it can so simply. Thanks in advance!
