How to create your own slide show

When you create a presentation, it is difficult to develop a perfect plan of slides in the very beginning. Very often, you don’t know, which part of your presentation will be interesting for the auditoria. For example, when you present the same presentation about the new project many times, the auditoria can be different.

How to work with hidden sides

Sometimes you have no time to finish the slide or find at the last moment that it isn’t important for this presentation. In this occasion, you can save you presentation to a different file, delete the slide and use the backup file later. However, you will not have there all notes, highlights and drawings that you will do during the presentation. Instead you can hide the slide and have all the information in one place.

When you work with your PowerPoint presentation in the Reading view or in the Slide Show view, it is better to navigate between slides using shortcuts.

How to select and format object in the slide with a big number of objects

When you create your own design on the slide, very often it contains a lot of different objects such as pictures, diagrams, charts, text boxes, shapes, etc. Sometimes it is difficult to select one of the objects - it can be behind other objects, or it can be too small, etc.
PowerPoint proposes an excellent feature named Selection pane that can help to navigate between different objects and groups.
