Save As HTML in Powerpoint 2011 for Mac

Follow-up to Extracting Images from Powerpoint Presentations for (e.g.) LaTeX presentations from Neuroimaging Statistics Tips & Tools

Arrrgh. In Powerpoint 2011 for Mac there is no “HTML” option in the “Save as…” dialog.

Fortunately, there is a Microsoft Support note that gives a work around. For convenience (& my memory) here it is distilled:

  1. Press ALT+F11. (Depending on your keyboard settings, you might have to hold down “fn” to get F11.) This will open a “Project” window.
  2. Press CMD+CTRL+G to open the “Immediate” window. (The support page leaves out CMD, the ‘Apple’ key.)
  3. In the “Immediate” window paste in the following:
    ActivePresentation.SaveAs "/tmp/name.htm", ppSaveAsHTML, msoFalse
    Press ENTER.

This will give you a name.htm file and a name_files directory. Of course, you can replace ”/tmp/myfile.htm” with the desired path and filename. However, I find it saves keystrokes to save it into /tmp, and then move the file to wherever you really want it.

While you’ll see the images in the *_files/ folder, disappointingly, I don’t find the same original source images like I have seen before. Again, Arrrgh.

Extracting Images from Powerpoint Presentations for (e.g.) LaTeX presentations

Have you ever needed to create a LaTeX presentation but needed figures that only lived in a PowerPoint file? Or have you found that the only copy of a crucial figure you need lives inside a PowerPoint presentation, and when you copy it out of PowerPoint into another application it looks horrific?

This is a cool trick to extract the original (or close to original) image file from the presentation.

Open the presentation, delete all the slides you don’t need. Then do “File -> Save as Web Page…”. You will get a .html (or .htm) file, and a _files directory. Inside the _files directory you will find a bunch of image files. It might take some poking around if there are lots of images on the slide, but you should find a close to original version of the image pasted into the slide.
