Windows 7: PowerPoint 2010 - Protecting Individual Slides

PowerPoint 2010 - Protecting Individual Slides


Can anybody help with this, I've been all over the Internet and can't find an answer.

My organisation writes training presentations for a number of customers. We output and ship the presentations in slideshow (PPS) format. Recently a few customers have requested the ability to access the PPT files so that they can insert slides from their own content in order to supplement my own material. I don't have a problem with this, but there is a security and copyright issue: while I have no problem customers inserting slides, I don't want my content altered because it has to be approved by a government body.

Is there anyway in 2010 PowerPoint to lock or protect individual slides in a PPT file, while also allowing the insertion of new slides? I'm sure this was possible on older versions, but in 2010 all I can find are the password for 'modify' and 'open' options, which are not good to me.

If anybody has any suggestions I would really appreciate the help.

All the best,
