Changes to "Export to PowerPoint" have made the experience worse!

I have been exporting company reports to PowerPoint for around 1 year, this has allowed me to export the images from each slide easily as I can use 7zip to extract every image from the .ppt in once action.


In the past month the export has started to include the slide number in the pictures, this means I then have to crop every individual picture to remove the slide numbers. Whose idea was this? It has made the images uglier and less usable (because the slide numbers in the image dont line up with every slide in every pack I will use them in) with no benefit. If page numbers are needed they should be in the .ppt slide, not embedded into the bottom of every picture.


Please tell me there is a work around to allow me to simply export images of every page in my reports again!

Thanks Kalyj. I just don't understand why anyone would ever want this, if you have the slides in a PowerPoint then the image numbers don't line up with the slide numbers anyway! It is a bad ideal badly implemented.

Hi @Anonymous ,

Sorry for the bad experience, really a little annoying, maybe someone need this feather? 

Maybe it will be different in the future if more people don't want this feature, you can submit an idea, other people may vote it.
