    Still has PowerPoint issues with PPT 2010 and PPT Viewer. First PPT will display properly but next one will display in the corner instead of full screen if multiple PPTs are shown sequentially. If you place anything else between the PPTs (image, video, song lyrics, EW Presentation, etc.) the next PPT will display fine but will revert to the upper left hand corner for the one immediately following.

    PPT 2016 appears to be fine from the testing I have done so far, at least until Microsoft updates PPT again.

    I understand that PPT 2010 and Viewer will soon reach EOL and no longer be supported by MS so that isn't a priority to EW these days. seems to be the sweet spot for those using PPT 2010 or Viewer, especially if they are still running on Windows 7.

    I haven't tried with PPT 2016 yet, but it has the same issues with PPT 2010 and Viewer that 7.1.4 has from my testing. I can't remember what the latest version of 6 works correctly with PPT 2010 and Viewer but I think it was
    This could be due to EW being DPI aware and viewer isn't. This KB article covers this.

    Thanks Roger. That appears to have fixed it under Windows 10. I don't have access to a Windows 7 PPT 2010 system at the moment, but I'll try it on that in the next day or two when I'm at the Church and let you know how that worked out.
