Google Docs presentation update

As my last post mentioned, I used Google Docs for a recent presentation. I found out that some things with publishing a presentation don’t work easily if you use Google Apps for your own domain. If you publish a document, it includes your domain and the URL and forces people to log in. I guess this is nice feature if you only want to publish to people in your domain, but causes issues if you want the world to be able to see it. I fixed this by publishing the document using a Google Docs account not on my domain (although just stripping out the domain URL may work as well).

I also just read a post on the Google Docs Announcement page that Export to PPT is here! This is great news as it will make it much easier to re-purpose content into other presentations.
