Tricks for Making Presentations a Little Livelier
Jumping forward or backward to a specific slide
If you find it necessary to jump forward or backward across several slides in
your presentation to get to the slide you want to show, it can be done with
these techniques:
Click the Slides button (in the lower-left corner of the screen, as shown
in Figure 5-2). Thumbnail versions of the slides in the presentation
appear. Click a thumbnail to view a slide.
Press Ctrl+S. You see the All Slides dialog box. It lists all slides in your
presentation. Select the slide you want to show and click the Go To button.
Press the slide number you want on your keyboard (if you can
remember the slide’s number) and then press the Enter key. For example, to
show the third slide in your presentation, press 3 and then press Enter.
Tricks for Making Presentations a Little Livelier
Herewith are a few tricks to make your presentations a little livelier. I explain
how to draw on slides, highlight parts of slides, blank the screen, and zoom
in. Take this bag of tricks to your next PowerPoint presentation to make
your presentation stand out.
Wielding a pen or highlighter in a presentation
Drawing on slides is an excellent way to add a little something to a
presentation. Whip out a pen and draw on a slide to get the audience’s attention.
Draw to underline words or draw check marks as you hit the key points, as
shown in Figure 5-3.
Drawing or highlighting on a slide
Follow these steps to draw or highlight on a slide:
Book IV
Chapter 5
1. Click the Pen button and choose a color on the pop-up menu.
The Pen button is located in the lower-left corner of the screen (refer to
Figure 5-3).
2. Click the Pen button again and choose Pen (to draw on slides) or
Highlighter (to highlight parts of a slide).
3. Drag the mouse to draw or highlight on the slide.
4. Press Esc when you’re finished using the pen or highlighter.
Be careful not to press Esc twice because the second press tells
PowerPoint to end the presentation.
You can also right-click, choose Pointer Options, and make selections on the
submenu to draw or highlight (choose Ink Color to choose a color).
