SmartOLE Xtra allows to display on the stage any kind of OLE document as a standard sprite. You can set its transparency and blending, and display other sprites in front of it. The xtra is especially useful to handle MS Office documents - Word (doc), Excel (xls), PowerPoint (pps). For instance, to create a sophisticated formatted text combined with images, charts, vector shapes etc. is much easier in Word than in Director directly.
You can activate a document and go into the edit mode on the stage as well as by running the OLE server as an independent application with its own window. In the former case you can edit the OLE document in its OLE server application while not leaving the projector window.
To display a document correctly its OLE server application is required to be installed in the system.
