    How to Export a PowerPoint PPTX File?

    Hi all. I want to build this kind of functionality on a serverprocess as well (without Office/Powerpoint installed). Has anyone experience with the Direct Office Library (https://www.winsoft.sk/doffice.htm) ? Or do you use a different library for that? I've been trying the demo-version of the Direct Office Library, but even along with MSDN-documentation I can't even generate a working empty pptx.
  2. I've even had a situation at one day of an existing project, delete dproj+everything but keep the dpk, when opening the dpk Delphi generated a different dproj+deployment comparing to a complete new FMX-application-setup. Please be aware of that.
  3. Hi, what you could try is making a new FMX-application and after that add all the units of the old dpk to the new dpk. EMB have added a lot of config to the dproj which isn't (of at least wasn't till 10.4.2) automatically added when you upgrade to a newer Delphi-version. I know you'll have to set a lot of config again, but give it a try at least.

    What is proper way to crypt some fields?

    Firebird 4.0 is enhanced with encryption algorithms see firebird-40-language-reference Its up to you to - encrypt/decrypt some fields only at Firebird-side - encrypt/decrypt some fields at your business/data-logic side (so database will have some binary encrypted content) - encrypt the complete database (you will need external plugins for that)

    Alt-sortcuts are not always the same

    I think this is related to the dynamically buildup of the IDE menu. I think your application in the 1st situation was a VCL-form-application. Because of that, the menuitem "Multi Device From - Delphi" is made invisible. The 'New Unit' item gets it's shortcut with the 'U'. When your projects is closed, de IDE makes it possible again to add a new "Multi Device From - Delphi". After enabling this menitem, it recalculates shortcuts for this menu. It chooses the "u" as shortcut (as "M" is already in use". Because of this the menu item "Unit - Delphi" can't get shortcut-key "U" anymore, and get it's next available character as shortcut ("n"). Could it be something like this?
