    Hi,

    I am new to Mac, having recently migrated from PC, so please excuse my ignorance!

    I am running a Mac Book Pro with Snow Leopard 10.6.8 and with Office 11 for Mac installed.

    I have a number of PowerPoint slides with hyperlinks to various video clips. Each time I run a session I receive a warning about the possible dangers of running a file and asking if I would like to open the file. The files are mostly .flv files and I am using MPlayerX. Once I say "yes" everything runs fine.
    How do I switch off this warning on a Mac? On PC we were able to do a reg-edit but I don't know what to do on a Mac. I know a work-around is to insert the clip into a slide but for various reasons this is not ideal :(

    Many thanks in advance :)

    Powerpoint warning

    See if this works...

    Click on PowerPoint ->Preferences -> View Tab -> Uncheck "warn before a linked file, application or macro is opened"

    Click OK

    Restart PowerPoint...

    Powerpoint warning

    Hi Timothy,

    Many thanks for the reply.
    Unfortunately I have tried that and it doesn't suppress the warning - perhaps because it is not a "macro".

    Any other suggestions? This really is becoming a nuisance in my life!

    Thanks again!
