Managing sections in Powerpoint 2010
Given the popularity of PowerPoint and its versatility, you are dealing with very large sets of slides or just collaborating with different people to create the slides. In such cases, it is always useful to be able to separate the slides into smaller groups and work with those groups. PowerPoint 2010 introduces the concept of sections to achieve this. Here are the main functions you can perform with sections.
The steps to create a new section are as follows. You can perform these steps from either the normal view or the Slide Sorter view.
Step 1 - In the Normal view or the Slide Sorter view, right click at the where you want to add the section and select add section .
Step 2 - The new section is added to the presentation with all of the following slides included in that section.
Step 3 - By default, the new section is named " Untitled led Section " but you can change the name of the section. Right click on the section and select " Rename section ".
Step 4 - In the Rename Section dialog box, enter the new name for the section. This accepts all characters including alphabets, nounsres, special characters, punctuation, etc.
Step 5 - Click the " Rename " button in the dialog to rename the section.
Reorganization of sections
One of the advantages of sections is that you can not only group the slides but also rearrange them into one set. Instead of having to move each slide individually, you can move the whole section. Just like with rearranging slides, you can drag and drop You can also right click on the section and drag it up or down as shown below.
If there are many slides to work with, you can collapse them to show only the sections. It also makes their reorganization less confusing.
PowerPoint 2010 provides three options for removing sections. The table below explains the function of each option.
