The free Protect demo will allow you to test thoroughly for yourself. If the demo works well for you, so will the purchased, fully registered version.

Other notes

When you install Protect in PowerPoint 2007 or later, you'll see a new "Add-ins" tab on the Office ribbon and on it, Menu Commands and Custom Toolbars groups instead of the PPTools menu bar item and toolbars that would appear in PowerPoint 2003 and previous. The functions are the same in either case.

PowerPoint 2007 and Protect

A serious bug introduced in Office 2007 Service Pack 1 causes corruption in images exported at over 960 pixels wide from default-sized (10" x 7.5") slides. The original release of PowerPoint 2007 doesn't have this problem.

Because of this, Protect can only export images at up to 96 * PageWidth if you're using PowerPoint with SP1.

If you request larger images, they'll be exported at this size instead.

If you request smaller images, they'll be exported at the requested size.

We apologize for the inconvenience and hope that Microsoft will fix the problem quickly.
