This PowerPoint add-in has been tested with PowerPoint 2000 and PowerPoint 2002 only.

Step 1: Prepare a text file containing the text that you want displayed in a PowerPoint slideshow.


Step 2:

Download the PP2002 add-in or

download the PP2000 add-in.

Unzip it and extract the TextBoxFromFile.ppa (or TextBoxFromFile2000.ppa) file to a location of your choice.

Step 3: In PowerPoint, use Tools | Add-Ins... | Add New... to locate and add the extracted file.  Ensure that it has a checkmark (or a 'X' in PP2000) to the left of the name.  If it doesn't, click the Load button.



Step 4: Start a new slide show.  The dialog box, shown on the right, will appear.  Select the text file created in Step 1 above.
Step 5: Enjoy the result.  A randomly selected line from the text file will be shown on each slide.
