SlideFab 2 v1.5 comes with the great new feature to automate Excel-to-Powerpoint linked charts. This is a great addition to the existing SlideFab 2 features which can copy charts from Excel to Powerpoint as image and to update the data in Powerpoint charts. Of course, this feature is also supported in the all free SlideFab 2 LITE edition.
MINOR UPDATE 10th January, 2019: A new installer was made available as the old SSL certificate had expired.
What’s new in SlideFab 2 v1.5
- A new Export Mode was added which makes automating charts much easier: When users add a linked chart in Powerpoint (e.g. by copying the chart in Excel and pasting it as linked chart in Powerpoint) the link can be automatically cut when running the slide fabrication loop. This is by far the easiest and most convenient way to automate charts from Excel to Powerpoint.
- SlideFab 2 v1.5 received improved code to authenticate with the license server reducing frequency of “no internet connection” messages.
