PPT shows where images were copied from when converted to PDF

Post by jmt356 »

I have a PPT that I saved to PDF. If I hover my pointer over an image in the converted PDF while it is displayed in Adobe Acrobat, a pop-up displays showing the root folder where the image was originally copied from. I believe this is part of the "alt text." How do I remove that datum so that readers cannot see where the images were copied from when they are viewing the PDF?
Regards,

JMT

You can remove the tooltips from the PowerPoint presentation before exporting to PDF by running the following macro, courtesy of PowerPoint MVP Steve Rindsberg:

Code: Select all

Sub BlankTheAltText()
  Dim oSl as Slide
  Dim oSh as Shape
  For each oSl in ActivePresentation.Slides
    For each oSh in oSl.Shapes
      oSh.AlternativeText = ""
    Next
  Next
End Sub
