Text field formatting

My advice is to completely divorce yourself from anything native to
PowerPoint.  Depending on what kind of effects you need to replicate and
your display quality needs, I would suggest grabbing the slides as screen
shots, or doing Save as within PowerPoint and saving the presentation to
HTML, RTF, GIF, or whatever.  Then deal with those objects.

Subject: Text field formatting

Hello all,

I am doing a rush CD project and need to do a lot of conversions from 
existing Powerpoint presentations. I need to import text and graphics 
from Powerpoint into a card in rev. Then I need to replicate the 
special effects that were done in Powerpoint in the new card in Rev. I 
started doing the text and am having trouble even getting the text 
field formatting to look right.

A wrap around text line does not tab in to align correctly. The text 
starts at the number or bullet instead of tabbed in to align with where 
the text starts. Rev does not seem to have good text field tools for 

Any ideas on good formatting in REV? Has anyone had to do a lot of 
importing of formatted text?
Any ideas on how to do this. I am in a crunch on this.

Thanks much,
