    I have solved every other problem this far, but this last one is kinda tricky. I can share PPTs made with Microsoft Office but when I make a PPT using OpenOffice(no matter what version) dimdim gives me this "Unable to convert" error in the presentation "room".

    I also noticed that if I make a PPT using MsOffice and then edit it with OpenOffice -> upload -> everythin OK. But native OpenOffice document -> save as ppt -> not working...

    Any ideas?

      Edit: It must be the fonts somehow..when I tested with OpenOffice PPT -> text in Times New Roman -> upload -> works
