Microsoft Powerpoint 2000There are several new features in PowerPoint 2000 that aren't available in PowerPoint 97. Though both versions of PowerPoint share the same file format .PPT.

Auto-fit Text adjusts font sizes slightly in an atttempt to fit text in a bulleted text placeholder to a given space. Autofit information isn't saved with the file, so it will most likely be ignored in PowerPoint 97.

AutoFormatting in PowerPoint 2000 can include font changes. According to a Microsoft document discussing new PowerPoint features, "This is different from Microsoft Word 95 and 97's Autoformatting feature.  They go on to explain how 1st gets converted to 1_with_superscript_st, how some fractions get converted to true fraction characters rather than e.g. 1/2. These seem to appear correctly when opened in PowerPoint 97.

Graphical and Numbered Bullets. PowerPoint 2000's Bullets and Numbering dialog is a great deal like Word's now. You can also choose your own preferred bullet character or use pictures for bullets. To quote MS again, "If you open a PowerPoint 2000 presentation in PowerPoint 97, graphical and numbered bullets appear as plain bullets. Numbered bullets appear as the default bullet defined in the slide master. Graphical bullets appear as the bullet characters used immediately prior to switching them to graphical bullets."

PowerPoint Table Editor. PowerPoint 2000 features a built-in table editor very similar to the one in Word. These get converted to a group of AutoShapes when you open the presentation in PowerPoint 97. In fact, if you ungroup the table in PowerPoint 2000, you'll get a pretty good idea what will happen to it in PowerPoint 97.

Animated GIFs are supported in PowerPoint 2000, not in PowerPoint 97. PowerPoint 97 displays the first frame of the animation as a static image.
