- Opening and saving presentations - Adding Images and Clip Art - Adding Shapes - Inserting Screenshots - WordArt, SmartArt, adding tables - Adding a short .mp3 sample, though playback cuts off about halfway and refuses to replay unless slide is re-accessed - File Recovery - Applying themes / Background Styles - Creating comments (but not editing them afterwards)
What does not
- Adding video (complains about missing codecs) - Printing (crashes when entering the printer tab) - Slideshow mode (freezes on a black screen) - Animations (causes app to freeze) - Editing existing comments: Cursor doesn't show up sometimes and no input is accepted
What was not tested
Anything not mentioned
riched20.dll DLL override is required to run. Manipulating shapes seems to give an odd flying-in-from-outside animation to the object, while the main window briefly loses focus. Silver rating is given because neither printing nor presentations work - after all, PowerPoint is a presentation app.
