Button
Name
Hyperlinks To
Return
Last slide viewed, regardless of normal order. This
is useful to place on a hidden slide that the audi-
ence will jump to with another link (such as Help)
to help them return to the main presentation
when they are i nished.
Movie
Nothing, by default, but you can set it to play a
movie that you specify.
Document
Nothing, by default, but you can set it to open a
i le that you specify.
Sound
Plays a sound that you specify. If you don’t choose
a sound, it plays the i rst sound on PowerPoint’s
list of standard sounds (Applause).
Help
Nothing, by default, but you can point it toward a
slide containing help or a help i le from an appli-
cation (usually has a .hlp i lename extension but
could also have a .chm or .html extension).
None
Nothing, by default. You can add text or i lls to
the button to create custom buttons.
Placing an Action Button on a Slide
To place an action button, follow these steps:
1. If you want to place the button on the slide master, display it (on the View tab,
click Slide Master). If you want to place the button on all layouts, click the top
slide (the slide master itself). If you want only a certain layout to receive the but-
tons, click it.
Some action buttons are best placed on the slide master, such as Next and Previous; others, such as Return, are
special-use buttons that are best placed on individual slides such as hidden slides.
2. On the Insert or Home tab, click Shapes. A palette of shapes appears; at the bot-
tom of the palette are the action buttons, as shown in Figure 19.10.
