The Compatibility Report tab is the last tab within the Toolbox in PowerPoint 2011 for Mac. This tab helps you if the presentations you create in PowerPoint 2011 need to be shared with others who are using other versions of PowerPoint -- on either the Mac or even on Microsoft Windows. Within this tab, you can check compatibility of any open presentation with other versions of PowerPoint. The Compatibility Report provides info on every compatibility feature for any version of PowerPoint since Office 97, and it can tell you whether objects (and other features) in your presentation are compatible with other versions. In addition, it also offers to fix some incompatibilities for you.
You use the Compatibility Report tool by starting at the top and working your way down. All the options within the
Compatibility Report tab are explained below, as shown in Figure 1.
