Hello Prashanth,

PH> I have been using Squeak for corporate presentation. I have
PH> effectively stopped using PowerPoint. As you suspected, I use the
PH> book morph and the stack morph for creating presentations. My

interesting. What image are you using?

PH> 1. I tried animating my Squeak presentations using EToys but it is way too hard

To see what can be done, search the web for Squeak News. Tansel
Ersavas has done some very impressive interactive essays in Squeak.
Just to get up your appetitite for learning :-))

PH> 2. I failed to run some Flash movies on Squeak, some months
PH> ago Edgar had suggested that older images support Flash but it
PH> didn't work for me. Maybe I failed to include the Balloon package
PH> and was trying to activate the FlashPlayer Morph. I lost interest
PH> in that at that point in time and left off my experiments.

AFAIK Squeak only understands Flash 3. Try a 3.6 to 3.8 full image, it
should have everything installed

PH> But I must say that I have been sticking to Squeak as my
PH> authoring platform. I take notes using workspace and export it as
PH> txt files for further use. I use stack morphs to develop story
PH> boards (I am a writer, specialising in technology and economy.)

Maybe take a look at Sophie?

PH> This may be too low-level for people on this mail-list.
PH> Please forgive me. If you have ideas for me, I will be grateful.
PH> (I intend to do some serious programming in the days to come. I
PH> have programmed in Fortran, Cobol, Pascal, C , Basic and used
PH> DBase IV and FoxBase. This is all between 1989 to 1994.)

This is beginners. Actually I guess you qualify as a professional
Squeak user, maybe not mainsteram. Squeak is more than programming.
