Microsoft informs that “pptPlex now works with PowerPoint 2010 and supports multi-touch in Windows 7!.” For those unfamiliar with pptPlex, the PowerPoint plug-in is designed to leverage the Plex technology in order to enhance presentations. In this regard, users will not only able to seamlessly zoom in and out of slide sections, but also to jump from one slide to another even if the items aren’t placed sequentially within presentation. Today’s update fixes a few compatibility bugs with PowerPoint 2010, but it also includes an important user experience change with regard to sections. “In PowerPoint 2007, there was no concept of sections, thus pptPlex added the concept. In PowerPoint 2010, there’s a concept of sections, thus pptPlex takes advantage of that concept. What this means is that when you’re using pptPlex in PowerPoint 2010, to create, remove, or rename a section, you’ll need to use PowerPoint user experience, not pptPlex. There’ll be no “Insert New Section” button in pptPlex ribbon, and section divider slides won’t be necessary.” noted. “On Win7 computer with multi-touch, pptPlex will support several gestures when presenting, including: pinch to zoom, swipe to go to next/previous slide; tap to zoom; two-fingered tap to zoom out,” Microsoft added.
