Plexing your Muscles with PowerPoint 2007

Frustrated by the linear nature of PowerPoint? Would you like to navigate quickly between slides in different parts of your presentation?

The video below produced by pptPlex shows you what this looks like:

I used pptPlex for a workshop recently and was impressed with the flexibility it allowed me. Having a visual overview of the next section of slides also helped me plan what I was going to say. The huge limitation of pptPlex is that currently you can’t embed video or slide animations [it would also be good if it was available for older versions of PowerPoint].
