How to Insert Flash Clocks in Powerpoint Presentation. How to Insert Free Flash Clock in Powerpoint 2013
Like the previous Powerpoint versions, the Powerpoint 2013 also needs to be configured to insert a flash file into a slide, but slightly in a different way just for the first time. Once done it is easy there after to insert a flash file into a powerpoint slide in your presentation. To do this first open the powerpoint 2013 and look for "DEVELOPER" tab on the ribbon. If you do not find "Developer" tab on the ribbon then follow these steps and then continue there after
Click on "File" tab.
Click "Customize Ribbon" on left
In both "Choose Commands from" and "Customize Ribbon" select "All Tabs"
Choose "Developer Tab" from the left list below it
Now Click "Add" button you see between the left and right lists
Now you should see the Developer tab on the Powerpoint 2013 ribbon
Now to insert your Flash swf file into Powerpoint 2013, just click on "Developer" Tab.
In the ribbon look for "Controls" and select the screw driver and spanner icon for "More Controls.."
In the "More Controls" dialog scroll down and select "Shockwave Flash Object"
Click OK button to close the more controls dialog box
In Powerpoint 2013 draw a rectangle by clicking anywhere in the slide and dragging without releasing your left mouse button and then release the left button
You will see a rectangle with two diagonals in it
Right Click this rectangle with your mouse and select "Property Sheet" with left mouse button
In the Property table that opens up, look for "Movie" in the left cell
In the empty cell on the right of "Movie" enter the location of your Flash Swf file for eg c:\downloads\matsclock.swf
You may want to also change "EmbedMovie" to "True" in to your powerpoint 2013 presentation slide so that you DON'T have to take the swf flash file separately.
If you are always connected to internet then you may even give a real web address of your flash swf file in powerpoint 2013 version for eg http://www.matsclock.com/matsclock.swf
You may tweak all other Properties in the sheet as you desire like Loop as True to run the flash swf file to repeat continuously as long as you keep the slide displayed on screen
Close the Property sheet and Save your Powerpoint 2013 presentation
You may change the size of the shockwave flash object rectangle whatever way you want
Now save your presentation and run
You should be able to see your MatsClock Free Flash swf file live and ticking in your Powerpoint 2013 presentation.
