Some pages does not show

Tom E I made an e-book using Power Point.
When I look under the files tab I see most of my pages except for a few.  Anyone know why? All pages are listed as:

and so on .....in this case page 54 is missing but it is listed  in the outline frame and it shows in my ebook.

I want to rename this slide/page but since it does not show under the file tab I cannot.

Also is it a way to rename the outline names. Now it is named slide 1, slide 2. I would prefer page 1, page 2 etc.

EBookCompiler Did you try hitting Refresh?

Is it possible that the pages are there but out of sequence in the list (I think this is probably it if the page does come out in the final ebook).  You can use the arrow buttons to move the order around.

> Also is it a way to rename the outline names. Now it is named slide 1, slide 2. I would prefer page 1, page 2 etc.

What specifically do you want to rename.  The table of contents? Text within a hyperlink?

For table of contents, you should be able to do this by double clicking on the files and editing the title

For text within the hyperlink, you probably need to edit the HTML page in an HTML editor (or  a text editor like notepad).  Search for the word and change it.

There may even be a way to set the names from within powerpoint, but I'm not sure about that (check the PowerPoint help)

Yes I did refresh and the page did not show. The page is nowhere to be found in the files menu. It is in the contents and in the outline frame.

I want to rename the outline name of the pages in my ebook. These are found in the left frame of the final e-book. I think the names that now are named slide 1. slide 2 etc. was generated in Power Point since this is a presentation software. My question is can I shut the outline frame off? Or rename them to "page" instead of "slide"? I hope I explained this well enough.

EBookCompiler I'm guess the files must be present in the book same place, - otherwise they wouldn't show up in the finished ebook (?) so I don't know the answer to that.  Open a Windows Explorer window and go look in your HTML source folder - does this help or give a clue?

For the names in the link, I am not certain if there is a way to change these automatically in PowerPoint - but in the worst case, you could make the change in a text editor.  Open the file in a Notepad (etc) and search for the word, change it, and recompile the ebook.

Geting rid frames -  it is definitely possible by editing the HTML codes (similar to how I told you to change the words) - whether front page can do it automatically is a different question (and one to look at in the PowerPoint help).  One thing you might try is to try converting the PowerPoint to HTML in different versions of PowerPoint (example: 97 and 2000). as when I tried this I get radically different results depending on the version of PowerPoint used

Tom E Thanks for your help. All my problems originated in Powerpoint.

EBookCompiler I am not sure but I figure it must be present to show up in the ebook

It did occur to me that maybe the file names don't correspond to the slide numbers?   Try viewing some of these files in Internet Explorer (using File Open).  This could explain it?
