With what OS is Slidewise Compatible?
Slidewise works on Windows 8.1 or Windows 10. You will need to ensure that .NET version 4.7.2 is already installed on your PC otherwise you cannot install Slidewise.
Slidewise is not available for Mac computers. Office for Mac is not built to allow for extracting the required information from each PowerPoint File.
Is there a Mac version of Slidewise?
Unfortunately, Slidewise is not available for Office for Mac.
To explain why: There are a number of different ways that applications can integrate with PowerPoint, each having its own set of strengths and weaknesses. To achieve the rich user interface and powerful features of Slidewise, we had to use technology (COM add-ins) which Microsoft has unfortunately not made available on Mac versions of Office. This situation might change at some point in the future, but sadly at the moment, a Mac version of Slidewise is not feasible.
