Here is another feature that I really love about MS PowerPoint: the whimsical “Edit Anyway” button.
This button becomes very important and displays only after you mark a PPT file as FINAL.
You do that to prevent others editing your file.
But what happens if, after marking it as FINAL, you discover a typo, or want to make another change to your presentation?
In PowerPoint 2007 that required re-saving your file under another name, unlocking the file, editing it, and re-saving it as a FINAL file.
With PowerPoint 2010 it is much easier and straight forward.
You click the EDIT ANYWAY button to cancel all effects of MARK FINAL operation so that your file becomes fully editable once again.
That’s a real time saver and I congratulate the developer who came up with this BRILLIANT IDEA!
