Download Presentation as PPTX

Download Presentations As PPTX

For premium users, Visme offers you two options:

  • Download your Project as a standard PPTX file (where each slide is converted to a single, static image).   -or-
  • Download your Project as an Editable PPTX file which will still maintain some functionality for further editing, with certain limitations.

PPTX files are great for collaborating on presentations with others who do not have a premium Visme account within your Business Plan. There are a few key things to know about downloading projects in the PPTX format, and we’ll review those in this article.

Downloading standard (non-editable) PPTX files

1
While inside the Editor window of your Project, click Download.

2
In the Download window, select Present Offline. Then click Download and select your destination.

Note: Downloaded standard PPTX files form your Visme account are not editable in Powerpoint, they can be viewed only. Each slide in your project is flattened to a single image. To maintain the ability to edit certain objects (such as text boxes, images, and shapes), as well as view ad hear any externally embedded content, you’ll need to download an editable PPTX file (see below for instructions).

Downloading Editable PPTX files

1
While inside the Editor window of your Project, click Download.

2
In the Download window, select Present Offline. Then click Download and select your destination.

Prior to downloading, please ensure that you have set “Download as editable Powerpoint presentation” to ON.

Here’s what to expect when you download your editable PPTX file from Visme and open it in Powerpoint.

Audio files from Visme will appear by default as clickable elements in PowerPoint slides. You can edit these further in PowerPoint.

Inserted MP4 videos that were added in your Visme project will (unfortunately) not play in Powerpoint. If you have added externally embedded videos (i.e. YouTube), these should still work, but will require a working internet connection and potentially require other access settings.

Visme’s slide transitions, animated elements, and animated charts and graphs will also be flattened in a Visme Editable PPTX file.

  • Animated objects will be reduced to a static image
  • Charts and graphs will not be able to be modified (you may need to rebuild them in Powerpoint if they need to be editable, or you can edit in Visme and redownload)
  • Slide transitions will be removed, as Visme’s transitions differ from those available in Powerpoint.

In order to retain the full functionality of your Visme project externally, our best recommendation is to edit in Visme online or through the desktop application and publish it online, embed the project to another website, or download it as HTML5.
