Question:

Question: Why are some powerpoint slides not showing correctly in presenter mode when MacBook is connected to a projector?

Greetings!

This is the first time I have ever tried to post a question to this forum.


I have a Macbook Pro (bought in late 2013) running OS 10 High Sierra and Microsoft Office for Mac 2011.

When playing a power point presentation in "presenter mode" with the MacBook connected to a projector, some slides do not display properly on neither MacBook screen nor projector screen.


-This occurs randomly.

-Some slides might miss a picture

-Some slides will have the text lines superimposed on each other or just missing altogether.


-This has now happened on two different occasions with two different projectors.

-Prior to both presentations, I toggled through all slides and they looked just fine on both screens.


This NEVER happens when playing the presentation on the mac itself without being connected to a projector.


Has anyone encountered a similar problem?

I am running the Mac and the projector both connected to AC power

Microsoft Office 2011 is updated (although not supported any longer as of fall 2017)

MacBook Pro, macOS High Sierra (10.13.4), Microsoft Office for Mac 2011

You might try asking your Microsoft PowerPoint question in the Microsoft help community: Microsoft Community

Also check to see if this applies: Microsoft Office support for macOS 10.13 High Sierra - Office Support
