Saving slides in a slide library
Stealing slides from a slide library
What do you do when you’re plodding along in PowerPoint and realize
that the slides you’re trying to create probably already exist in some
other presentation somewhere? You do what I do: You borrow the slides
from the other presentation. This chapter shows you how to do that.
Note that in the old days, the only way to steal slides from
another presentation was to get on your horse and chase
down the other presentation (that is, find the
presentation on your hard drive), jump on board (open the
presentation), and steal the slides at gunpoint (copy
the slides you want to steal and paste them into the
new presentation).
You can still steal slides that way — in fact,
Microsoft has created a special command that
makes it easy to steal slides directly from another
presentation. But if you steal slides often and want
to become a career criminal, the real way to do it is to
set up a slide library, which is a central repository for
slides. The slide library lives on a server, so anyone can
access it, and it’s managed by SharePoint, so it has a bunch
of nice SharePoint-like features.
