The new menu interface for Office 2007 “Ribbons”, including PowerPoint 2007 is visually stunning; however after many years of working with the previous interface it can be a bit challenging. I am forcing myself to learn it, however in the meantime if you want the features offered in PowerPoint 2007 and don’t have time or inclination to learn the new interface Addintools has created an addin to return your toolbars to their “classic” state. They claim the file is small and installs in minutes. It can also be activated and deactivated easily.
The cost for the PowerPoint only version is $15.99 and office edition (PowerPoint, Word, Excel) is $29.95
This is an interesting idea. I have yet to try it, mostly because I am fearful or no longer pushing myself to learn “ribbons”. If you try it, please let me know.
