Please note, this product has been tested on Powerpoint 2010 for PC and Powerpoint 2011 for Mac. If you have any issues with the sizing, or anything, please contact me and I will create for you a static image ppt that will be universal. I'm in the process of adding this to all of my products, but full time teaching takes up most of my day ;)
Thank you! Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can help in any way ;)
