After Creating a Custom Transition it would be good practice to Export it to a folder somewhere on your HD called “Exported Slide Styles”

Global vs Embedded Transitions

  • The Global Transitions section contains both the Preset PTE Transitions and the Custom Transitions which you can Create yourself or Import from the Forum etc.
  • The “Manage Transitions” button has a dropdown menu which allows the Option to “Clone” a Custom Transition
  • The Cloned Copy can then be either edited to create a Variation or “Moved to the Local Storage” (Embedded Transitions)
  • When creating a “Backup in ZIP” (BIZ) to export to another PC which might not have the Custom Transition it is included for use when the BIZ is unzipped
  • The Global Custom Transitions are Embedded in Executable files
