I’m pleased to be able to say with some confidence that is highly unlikely - they work with InCopy/InDesign, which for all their faults have the major plus of not being PowerPoint.

Mind you, i found myself longing for PowerPoint yesterday when I had to* work on a 120-page Google Slides presentation… The document was a pitch for a fairly big piece of work. I spoke to one of the senior account managers and she said the client had specifically asked for it to be presented in this format, which is just mental.

But the whole thing could have been condensed into around 10 pages - and would have been much better for it.

*Yes, I could have turned down the work, but while I’m between jobs I thought it would be prudent to accept it, plus it was helping out a mate.
