Delivering a Presentation When You Can’t Be There in Person
Telling PowerPoint how long to keep slides on-screen
PowerPoint offers two ways to indicate how long you want each slide to stay
✦ Entering the time periods yourself: Switch to Slide Sorter view and go
to the Transitions tab. Then deselect the On Mouse Click check box and
select the After check box, as shown in Figure 5-5. Next, tell PowerPoint
to keep all slides on-screen the same amount of time or choose a
different time period for each slide:
slide or all
• All slides the same time: Enter a time period in the After text box and
click the Apply to All button.
• Each slide a different time: One by one, select each slide and enter a
time period in the After text box.
✦ Rehearsing the presentation: Rehearse the presentation and save the
timings. (See “Rehearsing and Timing Your Presentation” earlier in this
chapter.) Be sure to save the slide timings after you’re finished
rehearsing. In Slide Sorter view, you can see how long each slide will stay
onscreen (see Figure 5-5).
