Version 4 supports the following Microsoft® PowerPoint® versions:
2010 (32bit and 64bit) 2007 2003
The Random Slideshow add-in requires PowerPoint 2000 or later.
The add-in allows one to create a PowerPoint slideshow in which designated slides are shown in random order. This might seem somewhat unusual, but there are many uses for such a presentation. While the original intent was for a memorial slide show, the add-in has many applications.
Version 4 introduces the ability to randomize groups of slides. The slides in each group are shown in the original sequence while the groups themselves are shown in a random order. This is very useful if one has Q&A pairs with the first slide showing the question and the second slide containing the answer.
