Add powerpoint presentation in Confluence


I'm trying to insert a powerpoint presentation into a new confluence page.

For some reason, I can't add a file name.

Are there some restrictions?

What can I be doing wrong?

Kind Regards.

Hi @Lore Heyvaert

did you upload the ppt file? Because in your screenshot it looks like there are no attachment to the site. After uploading you should be able to choose the file in the dropdown you marked. 

Hope this helps!

Best regards

Hi @Lore Heyvaert


Welcome to the community. 

Link for further details. Agreed with @Fabienne Gerhard, you need to first attach the presentation to the page and then use the macro to display the content. 



Hi Lore,

        I'm from Zoho Show and we'd like to introduce our add-on
Zoho Show for Confluence Cloud. You can now import , edit and manage all your powerpoint files in your confluence space , without switching between apps and user accounts.

We support pptx,ppt and ppsx file formats.

The presentations embedded in confluence pages are navigable with quick navigation controls and fullscreen view. 

We have rich set of options to transform your numbers to beautiful charts and infographics.

Here's our Atlassian Marketplace page . Install and give it a try :) 

Would love to hear more from you!



You should as attachment upload your file after use ppt macro.

It will appear in this page
