Not available in the Essentials Edition
When applying a Style which requires two (or more) images, they can also be added to a single blank slide in Objects and Animation and assigned Main Image Indexes 1 and 2 (etc). The Style can then be applied to that single slide containing two (or more) indexed images.
Styles can contain objects which are not Main Images.
Objects created in Objects and Animations such as Rectangles, Frames, Buttons, Masks etc are included in the Style as “instructions” and add very little in terms of file size.
If an Image is introduced in Objects and Animation (not designated as being Main Image) and used as a Background or to create an object such as a Box then that is also included in the Style but will increase the Style file size significantly. JPEGs and PNG files can be used for this purpose.
Users create projects which have different aspect ratios of slides (4:3, 16:9, etc). You have to declare the supported variants of aspect ratio for your style:
You can create two independent styles - for 4:3 and for 16:9. Set the same name for both styles (for example, 'My style'). PicturesToExe will automatically combine both styles into one style. And users will see one style in the list. When the user applies this style PicturesToExe will automatically choose the correct variant (16:9 or 4:3) according settings of user's project. If the style does not contain the necessary variant, PicturesToExe will choose the nearest variant (e.g. 4:3 for 5:4).
Adjust 'First slide' and 'Slide count' parameters to include the number of slides for the style.
If you create a style which contains 3 slides and apply it to 6 slides it will be applied in the following order:
1,2,3,1,2,3 - because 'Number of slides for beginning' and 'Number of slides for the end' have a zero value.
Choose 3 slides, set 'First slide' as 1 and 'Slide count' as 3.
Set 'Number of slides for beginning' as 1 and 'Number of slides for the end' as 1.
Now this style will be applied to 6 slides in the following order:
Example: Please download the following example of this application of a Style from the WNSOFT.com server
Import (see below) the Style and apply to three or more images dragged into the Slide List. The Style has “Beginning”, “Middle” and “End” sections.
This is a workaround suggested by Igor:
It is possible to add an editable text caption to a slide within a Style.
If the Slide Name or Names are changed in Slide Options to a suitably descriptive name before Creating the Style then the Applied Slide Style will add an Identifier to the Slide or Slides.
Always save the Project from which you have made a Style as a Template for use at a later date.
