Hi Sharad

I'm not sure what you are getting.
When I start a new collection, add power point documents, configure
PPTPlug with -convert_to pagedimg_jpg -windows_scripting, and build, I
get documents with next and previous page arrows.
Each page displays the text.
If I replace [Text] in the DocumentText format statement with
{If}{[parent:FileFormat] eq PPT, [srcicon],[Text]}, then I get the
images displayed instead of the text.

I think this is what you want isn't it?

What version of greenstone are you using? I am using 2.62.
If you can't get it working, some screenshots showing what you are
actually seeing, and your config file would help.

Regards,
Katherine
