Hidden Slides for All Contingencies
Fill in the text boxes: If you asked text boxes with your photo album, by
all means, replace PowerPoint’s generic text with meaningful words of
your own.
Write the captions: If you asked for photo captions, PowerPoint entered
photo file names below photos. Replace these file names with something
more descriptive.
Editing a photo album
To go back into the Photo Album dialog box and rearrange the photos in
your album, go to the Insert tab, open the drop-down list on the Photo
Album button, and choose Edit Photo Album on the drop-down list. You see
the Edit Photo Album dialog box. It looks and works exactly like the Photo
Album dialog box (refer to Figure 1-9). Of course, you can also edit your
photo album by treating it like any other PowerPoint presentation. Change
the theme, fiddle with the slides, and do what you will to torture your photo
album into shape.
Hidden Slides for All Contingencies
Hide a slide when you want to keep it on hand “just in case” during a
presentation. Hidden slides don’t appear in slide shows unless you shout Ollie
ollie oxen free! and bring them out of hiding. Although you, the presenter,
can see hidden slides in Normal view and Slide Sorter view, where their slide
numbers are crossed through, the audience doesn’t see them in the course
of a presentation unless you decide to show them. Create hidden slides if
you anticipate having to steer your presentation in a different direction — to
answer a question from the audience, prove your point more thoroughly, or
revisit a topic in more depth. Merely by right-clicking and choosing a couple
of commands, you can display a hidden slide in the course of a slide show.
Hiding a slide
Book IV
Chapter 1
The best place to put hidden slides is the end of a presentation where you
know you can find them. Follow these steps to hide slides:
1. Select the slide or slides that you want to hide.
2. On the Slide Show tab, click the Hide Slide button.
You can also right-click a slide in the Slides pane or Slide Sorter view
and choose Hide Slide. Hidden slides’ numbers are crossed through in
the Slides pane and the Slide Sorter window.
To unhide a slide, click the Hide Slide button again or right-click the slide
and choose Hide Slide.
