Joy, I have purchased a number or your Harcourt power points and love them. I was wondering if it would be possible for you to consider adding a blank slide or two so that we could add additional vocab or skills. Thank you for the lovely products.

Thank you for your feedback. I had not considered this, but would be more than happy to do so. Also, I don't know if you are aware, but you can easily enter additional slides into the power points you have purchased by selecting the slide before where you want the blank one and then inserting new blank slide. Please let me know if you have other comments or suggestions that help me to improve my products!

It may be a windows 7, but that shouldn't worry! If you will email me your email address to leapfrog2025@yahoo.com I will go thru the power point on a windows 7 machine and ensure that each slide is correct and email it to you by Monday evening! I'm so sorry you are having difficulties.

Hi there, I apologize for the delay in responding, I am just getting this message. They are not editable unless you have PDF software that allows for editing. I am more than happy to help accommodate your needs as I've done this for a customer in the past. Purchase the items and send me what you are needing revised/edited and I will be happy to make those changes for you. I typically have a turn around of 24 hours, 48 depending on the job size. My email address is leapfrog2025@yahoo.com. Put tpt in the subject line. If you look at customer reviews for this product you will see I have done this for others already. Hope that helps.

Hi Nicholas,
I would be happy to offer a discount. If you are interested, let me know when you'd like to purchase them and I will place my entire store on sale for 20% off. Then you can purchase any items you want at a discounted price. I'm not sure if there is any other way, other than I could do a buy 3, get one free, but I would have to receive feedback on the 3 and then your email and I would email you a free power point. Let me know what you'd like to do. The power points have been very popular and help support content instruction as well as reading supports.

Buyer re: Prefix and Suffix MisMatch

Hi Smartteacher11,
Yes you can change the font. it is a smart notebook program, so it is easy to change fonts. I teach ELL and they did well with the font, but depending on your ELL levels it might create some challenges. both prefixes and suffixes are in the same set! Hope that answers your question. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Buyer re: Common Core Subtraction with Regrouping
I downloaded the fonts from KevinandAmanda.com. Which fonts did you use from dafont.com? I have not had any luck when opening either of the notebook files. The font is all over the place. It did change slightly once I downloaded font from Kevin and Amanda, but both are still not useable. Also, word document is scrambled. Can you please send the documents in an email or another format? I would like to have quickly. Thank you!

I'm so sorry to hear that you are having issues. The fonts in the original files were socially awkward from KevinandAmanda and Yikes from Dafont. I have revised the word document and put it into a pdf file that should work with no problem. As for the notebook files, if you have smart board software, the smartbook revised file should be your best bet if you have kevinandamanda fonts. I'd be happy to email this to you if you don't wish to redownload. Please send your email and I will email as soon as I recieve it! Again I am very sorry you have run into problems. I try to use common fonts from other sites beyond microsoft to keep it cute but functional for all users. Keep me posted. I want you to be satisfied and will do whatever necessary to ensure you can use what you have purchased!

Hello Joy! I just purchased "The Talent Show" and most of the words (especially in the headings) are coming up as symbols. What font did you use? If you could help me I would appreciate it.

Hi Ashley, I'm sorry about this. Over the last few weeks, I've realized that my power points have fonts that are not part of the standard set of Microsoft. Talent Show uses waterfalls by KevinandAmanda.com/fonts which is a free font site. One thing to try is to enable editing and change the font on the slides to what you have. It should come out fine. Please let me know immediately if you continue to have problems. I will immediately send you the power point in standard microsoft font. After this realization, I have been more vigilant in posting the fonts used or posting in regular fonts. hope that helps.

Please send me your email and I will be happy to forward you the all family. Or you can re-download the product with the corrected version.
