1. Replacing Slides in Advanced Editor

1.1.  When the .ppt file is recorded as screen (using the option in Recorder “Capture Main/Secondary Screen”), no slides will be available in the Slides tab in the Editor (See Figure 1).

1.2.  You can check if the .ppt file was captured as SCREEN or as PowerPoint presentation in the Streams tab in session’s settings (Figure 2).

Note: There are no presentation documents. This means that the slides were captured as Screen (please see SCREEN Tag in the Streams tab).

1.3.  To replace a slide with a new one in this example, you need to edit out the Screen showing the wrong slide and add a new slide that would replace the one from the screen capture.

1.4.  Copy the original session and work on that copy. This will help to avoid any possible unwanted changes.

1.5.  Open the copied session in the Advanced Editor.

1.6.  Go to the Slides tab then choose Add a presentation (Figure 3).

1.21.  The 2 cuts you made will show in the Edits tab (in between 57:42:44 and 01:02:37.36 the video and screen were removed so that the new slide we’ve added above can be displayed instead) Note: The start time for the slide in this case should be 57:42:44 (Figure 14).
