SlideFab 2 v1.9 is available now. It contains code changes due to a recent update in think-cell 10 which led to a PowerPoint freeze after starting the Slide Making process.
Always remember: think-cell is an awesome product. But it might stop working with SlideFab at anytime due to updates to the think-cell software. SlideFab will try to keep it running.
Of course, it is possible to use Excel and PowerPoint charts with SlideFab. There are so many options, choose what you prefer most!
