MS ImpotencePoint

I don't really now why I have to struggle with this software everyday! I may really end up starting a business just to make a presentation software. Then I realize that Apple has already produced keynote that! well, god damn PowerPoint! have you ever copied and pasted a picture into your slide and then used the "Set transparent color" tool from the picture toolbar, then selected the white background.

At this point two problems may occur. first, the "Set transparent color" tool is dimmed and unselectable randomly (at least I couldn't figure out the pattern!). Second, you select the color you want to be transparent, everything seems fine, you save the presentation and take it to your presentation confidently (you can never be so on windows!) then while you are going through slides there you have an ugly slide (like the rest of MSPP slides are not!) with the white background everywhere!!!

anybody got an idea, what is the problem. I'm so busy I can't investigate it myself!

Why don't you use LaTeX with beamer package instead?
