How do I download a file from PowerFrameworks?

Determine the file type

Once you find the framework that you want to download, you need to determine what file type best suits your purposes. If you are downloading an animated example then the only option you have is a ppt (powerpoint file). However if you are downloading a framework you may have a couple different choices: ppt, emf/png.
