PowerPoint 2013 Notice

SumTotal considers PowerPoint 2013 and higher unsupported. Because PowerPoint 2013 shipped after ToolBook 11.5 shipped, this means that SumTotal was unable to conduct official testing with PowerPoint 2013, before ToolBook 11.5 shipped. What we have since discovered is that the installer for the SumTotal Publish to ToolBook add-in does not recognize PowerPoint 2013, and therefore will not install the add-in. At present the only way to get PowerPoint 2013 to utilize the SumTotal Publish to ToolBook add-in is to first install PowerPoint 2007 or 2010, then install the SumTotal Publish to ToolBook add-in, and then upgrade your installation of PowerPoint to the 2013 version. This process appears to leave the already installed SumTotal Publish to ToolBook add-in in place and allows you utilize it within PowerPoint 2013. There are no current plans to patch ToolBook to work with PowerPoint 2013 and higher.


PROBLEM

I've installed the SumTotal Publish to ToolBook add-in, but I don't see it on the ribbon bar within PowerPoint 2010.


EXPECTED BEHAVIOR

The SumTotal Publish to ToolBook add-in is essentially a utility that converts a PowerPoint presentation into a ToolBook file. Please look up "PowerPoint" within your ToolBook help file for details on this utility.


After installing the SumTotal Publish to ToolBook add-in you should find a panel on the HOME ribbon bar within PowerPoint offering a Publish To ToolBook option. It typically will appear near the right edge as shown below:



TROUBLESHOOTING

If the SumTotal Publish to ToolBook add-in is not showing up on your Home ribbon bar within PowerPoint, the likely reasons are:

The version of PowerPoint that you are using is older than version 2007


The add-in will not function in versions of PowerPoint older than version 2007.

The version of PowerPoint that you are using is a 64 bit version of PowerPoint


The SumTotal Publish To ToolBook add-in is a 32 bit add-in, and will not work with a 64 bit version of PowerPoint. You can use this 32 bit SumTotal Publish to ToolBook add-in in these two situations

The SumTotal Publish to ToolBook add-in is not currently installed


You can determine if this is really installed by looking in your Programs and Features control panel. If you find a listing for SumTotal Publish to ToolBook, it is currently installed.


REINSTALLING THE ADD-IN

If you are still having problems getting the add-in to appear properly on your ribbon bar, you will want to ensure the SumTotal Publish to ToolBook add-in properly and fully installed. This will require you to:



To remove or repair it, you'll need to access the Programs and Features control panel within Windows. You'll find the add-in, listed as:



If you need to reinstall, you can find the installer for the SumTotal Publish to ToolBook add-in located in the following folder on your computer (depending on which version of ToolBook you installed):


The Add-in is currently disabled within PowerPoint


HOW TO ENABLE A DISABLED POWERPOINT ADD-IN

It is possible that the add-in is installed but simply not being loaded by PowerPoint. In order to determine if this is the case:


    1. Click the FILE menu button in the upper left of your PowerPoint 2010 screen
    2. Click the Options option in the left column
    3. Click Add-Ins
    4. In the Active Applications Add-ins section, you should find SumTotal Publish to ToolBook listed. Being listed here is a clear sign that PowerPoint has located the SumTotal Publish to ToolBook add-in, and that it is installed properly.
    1. If you find that the Add-in was disabled or inactive, and yet you are unable to reactivate it, there is a possibility that a Microsoft component called VSTO (which the SumTotal Publish to ToolBook add-in uses) is not properly installed or another possibility that your .NET PROGRAMMABILITY SUPPORT is not installed.

      To reinstall VSTO 2005


To install .NET PROGRAMMABILITY SUPPORT
(please don't confuse this with the .NET Framework, which is different):

A normal installation of PowerPoint 2010 will already include .NET Programmability Support. However it is possible your version was installed with this support turned off.


To turn on this support, do the following.
