    Hi folks,


    I'm new to Mac and working on my existing powerpoint lectures that were originally created in Word on a PC. Recently, my hyperlinks make the linked text invisible--this is true on both my Mac desktop and my Macbook Pro. Both already existing hyperlinks and any new links I create disappear from the screen, though they can be clicked on and still function as links. I have tried changing the font color and the background color, but no luck. The text disappears whether I simply past in the link to a slide or add it as a hyperlink to text. My tech folks here at school can't figure out the problem.

    I'm running Mac OS 10.5.6 and Office 2004.

    Any brilliant Mac folks out there with an answer? Many thanks for reading.

    Best,

    Indigogrrlz

    Not sure where the setting is 'cause I don't have my computer in front of me at work, but it sounds like your hyperlink font color is white. Change the hyperlink color to blue or similar.


    EDIT:
    Found this after a quick Google search:

    n PowerPoint 97 and 2000:

    -From the main menu bar, choose Format, Slide Color Scheme.
    -In the Color Scheme dialog box, click the Custom tab
    -On the Custom tab, you'll see 8 "color chips". These are the scheme colors. The last two, "Accent and hyperlink" and "Accent and followed hyperlink" are the ones you're interested in.
    -Doubleclick the "Accent and hyperlink" color chip and choose a new Standard or Custom color in the color selection dialog box that appears, then click OK. This sets the color that PowerPoint assigns to hyperlinked text.
    -Repeat for the "Accent and followed hyperlink" color chip if you wish to set the color PowerPoint uses for visited hyperlinked text.
    -Click "Apply" to apply this change to only the current slide or click "Apply to All" to apply the change to your entire presentation.


    In PowerPoint 2002 and 2003:

    -If you don't already see the Slide Design task pane, choose Format, Slide Design from the main menu bar.
    -In the Slide Design pane, click Color Schemes. "Apply a color scheme:" appears at the top of the area where thumbnails appear.
    -Click "Edit Color Schemes ..." at the bottom of the task pane. The "Edit Color Scheme" dialog box appears.
    Click the Custom tab
    -On the Custom tab, you'll see 8 "color chips". These are the scheme colors. The last two, "Accent and hyperlink" and "Accent and followed hyperlink" are the ones you're interested in.
    -Doubleclick the "Accent and hyperlink" color chip and choose a new Standard or Custom color in the color selection dialog box that appears, then click OK. This sets the color that PowerPoint assigns to hyperlinked text.
    -Repeat for the "Accent and followed hyperlink" color chip if you wish to set the color PowerPoint uses for visited hyperlinked text.
    -Click "Apply" to apply this change to ALL of your slides.
