  • @hudali15 Dear Ali, I love all the 25 quotes equally. This is so true that I thought they should appear in alphabetical order by authors. But the fact that you have selected the first one to explain the poor viewership so far makes me happier with the presentation... and much more proud of it!...

    Juao, I had the same issue before and corrected things as described before. Initially, the default was downloadable presentations. This changed to downloadable if edited by clicking the download box post to uploading. Now, like you experience, I do not find the download box. May be again it is a new policy. Changes that we never opted for.
