What is the correct way to upload a Power Point presentation? The only way I can see is through Attachments, but why isn't there an import, as there is for Word?
You can upload Power Point presentation as an attachment into Confluence and you may choose to display/embedded it on a Confluence page by using Office Connector Plugin. Here's the details: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Embedding+PowerPoint+Presentations+in+a+Page
Confluence only offers the ability to import Word document so that the document's content is copied onto one or more Confluence pages and there's no import Power Point feature.
When embedding a PowerPoint presentation in Confluence 5.1.2, the slides never appear. The loading symbol displays and churns.......and churns. I have tried both "drag and drop" and attaching the file then using the macro. Same results either way. I can embed and display Word docs, Excel spreadsheets, and PDFs, but not PowerPoint presentations. Any suggestions?
Importing (rather than just displaying) parts of a presentation is vastly more complicated than importing prose from a document.
Essentially, a word processed document is a big block of text, with some formatting. Confluence uses it's own formatting, and there's mostly a simple 1:1 relationship (italic:italic, bold:bold, heading 1:h1, and so-on), and you can ignore the stuff confluence can't handle without losing any of the text.
With a presentation, there's a whole complexity of visuals that could be there, and no simple 1:1 rules. So there's no really useful generic way to write an import. Confluence can't possibly guess what you want to import.
