How to exclude notes of PPT files?

I want to import only slides and not notes of PPT files when using CT.

Can someone explain how?



You can use this work-around:


  • Instal this macro to remove all notes.
  • Run it on a copy of your PPT file and translate it
  • Import the original PPT
  • Filter on all empty segments: these should be all notes
  • Task > Source to target

Or, you can use this modified version of the macro:


Sub RemoveNotes()

Dim objSlide As Slide

Dim objShape As Shape


For Each objSlide In ActivePresentation.Slides

For Each objShape In objSlide.NotesPage.Shapes

If objShape.TextFrame.HasText Then

objShape.TextFrame.TextRange = "!!" & objShape.TextFrame.TextRange

End If

Next

Next

End Sub


Then:

  • Import the PPT
  • Either filter on all segments that contain !! and filter on them
  • Task > Source to target
  • Filter on all untranslated
  • Afterwards, remove all !! in CafeTran
Or:

  • Import the PPT
  • Sort alphabetically: all segments with !! will be at the top
I just realised that you'll probably have to experiment with the segmentation: e.g. set it to paragraph

Or you remove the notes manually.

Or you use the Clipboard workflow.

Thank you so much. I am still learning how to fully utilize Cafetran. I will try your suggestion and hopefully one of them will work for me.  

Hello,

It may be too late, but all the notes can be deleted in one operation. Please see: Tips and tricks
