Navigating Back to the Main Show
Choose one of your custom shows as the place to jump to when the user clicks the

box. If you do not select this option, the presentation will simply end when the

If you are using text for the hyperlink, the text now appears underlined and in a differ-

not change. However, when you are in Slide Show view and you move the mouse pointer over
the object, the pointer changes to a pointing hand, indicating that the object is a hyperlink.
If you do not want your linked text to be underlined or to change colors upon return, you can draw a rectangle with
no border and 99 percent white i ll over the top of the text and link to the rectangle instead. Because this shape is
on top of the text, you click it instead of the text. Keep in mind that you should create your link before changing the
border and i ll of the shape to almost no color.
Another way to use hyperlinks for custom shows is to set up the ﬁ rst few slides generically
for all audiences and then to branch off into one custom show or another, based on user
