Can I import power point slides to mental case - would be a great feature.
I have a lot of anatomy quizes on ppt and would rather have them in mental case because I can keep track and focus more on the ones that are missed.

    Hi Randy,
    It would be quite difficult to support this. Powerpoint uses a very complex layout system, and importing the right text and images would be difficult.
    If there is a way to export the slides as CSV text, you could import that. Even if you could export as jpeg images, you could import into Mental Case.
    Otherwise, I'm afraid you would have to copy the text over, or use the screen grab function to capture each slide. Sorry.
    Kind regards,

    Hi Randy,
    Search out a macro script for extracting text from powerpoint to CSV - or as admin mentioned extract ppt as jpeg (google it). I've just recently found out that OpenOffice is great at CSV-exporting from spreadsheets with the option to choose Unicode UTF-8 transcript language (an option weirdly enough missing big time in newer Windows Excel). Perhaps OpenOffice can do the trick as well with ppt.

    Best of luck,
