    Specs:
    2013 MBA 13" - OS X 10.11.latest
    OpenOffice or NeoOffice will both open Powerpoint files
    Even simpler, select the .ppt file in finder and press the spacebar.

    A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.
    The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

    In what OS does this work McBie? I've tried it in Tiger, and space bar simply moves to the next item.
