View Full Version : Clarisworks Presentation to Powerpoint???

03-03-2007, 03:59 PM
Did a search of the Forum and found nothing about Clarisworks , which is an iMac software similar to MS Office , so here is the problem.

I need to convert a Clarisworks presentation from its existance as a .cwk presentation file into a Powerpoint (or equal) Presentation. I have OpenOffice, so .ppt should be readable by that software. I think.

I have a G3 iMac ppc that has the Clarisworks application, but it will only save in .cwk which OOO doesn't read. So, here I am asking for some assistance. My search of the web found a couple of cwk convertors, but they seem to only work for the Word Proccessing documents, not the presentations. I now have no clue what to do.

Anyway, is anyone aware of this software? or a convertor?

Can you export your text out of the document at all? Or does Clarisworks only offer one file format? I have no experience with this program.

If you are really desperate: take a screen shot of your presentation and put that into Powerpoint. A definite last-ditch effort, but it can work.

Thanks for the reply, Karen.
Yes, there is only one choice for the 'save' filetype.

After describing the difficulties to the "client" (a friend), she will simply re-create the presentation in Powerpoint since some of the data is outdated and she has the necessary components (pictures, etc) to re-do it.
