Selecting and Editing an Entire Slide
Selecting and Editing an Entire Slide
When you work with the Outline tab, you often have to select an entire slide.
You can do that by clicking the icon for the slide. This selects the slide title
and all its body text. In addition, any extra objects, such as graphics, that are
on the slide are also selected even though those objects don’t appear in the
outline.
You can delete, cut, copy, or duplicate an entire slide:
Delete: To delete an entire slide, select it and then press Delete.
Cut or copy: To cut or copy an entire slide to the Clipboard, select the
slide and then press Ctrl+X (Cut) or Ctrl+C (Copy), or use the Cut or
Copy button on the Home tab on the Ribbon. You can then move the
cursor to any location in the outline and press Ctrl+V or use the Paste
button to paste the slide from the Clipboard. (You can also cut or copy a
slide by right-clicking the slide and choosing Cut or Copy from the menu
that appears.)
Duplicate: To duplicate a slide, select it and then press Ctrl+D. This step
places a copy of the selected slide immediately after it. (Actually, you
don’t have to select the entire slide to duplicate it. Just click anywhere
in the slide’s title or body text.)
Selecting and Editing One Paragraph
You can select and edit an entire paragraph along with all its subordinate
paragraphs. To do so, just click the bullet next to the paragraph that you want
to select. To delete an entire paragraph along with its subordinate paragraphs,
select it and then press Delete.
To cut or copy an entire paragraph to the Clipboard along with its
subordinates, select it and then press Ctrl+X (Cut) or Ctrl+C (Copy). You can then
press Ctrl+V to paste the paragraph anywhere in the presentation.
Promoting and Demoting Paragraphs
To promote a paragraph is to move it up one level in the outline. If you promote
the “Psalm 46 encodes a tribute to Shakespeare” paragraph in Figure 3-1, for
example, that paragraph becomes a separate slide rather than a bullet under
“Shakespeare’s Psalm.”
