Rearranging Slides in a Presentation
Rearranging, and
Deleting Slides
Tip: When you import a slide into a presentation, PowerPoint automatically applies the target
presentation’s theme to the imported slide. If you want imported slides to keep their original theme, turn on the
“Keep source formatting” checkbox at the bottom of the Reuse Slides pane.
Rearranging Slides in a Presentation
Moving slides from one spot to another in your presentation is a simple matter of
dragging a slide and dropping it into place. In Slide Sorter view, select the slide you
want to move, and then drag it to a new spot. As you drag, the cursor jumps between
slides to show the insertion point. When the cursor is in the right location, let go of
the mouse button. The slide jumps to that spot.
Tip: For an efficient way to move a group of slides, create a section for that group, and then move the
section. Page 604 gives you the details on how to do this.
You can also move a slide by cutting and pasting—this can be useful in a large
presentation with many slides, where the drag-and-drop method is less efficient.
Cutting a slide works just like copying it, except that instead of leaving the original,
copied slide in place, PowerPoint deletes the slide from its original spot. (There’s a
copy on the Clipboard, of course.) To move a slide, switch to an overview of the
presentation (the Slides pane or Slide Sorter view) and then do the following:
1. Selecttheslideyouwanttomove,andthenpressCtrl+X.(Ifyouprefer,you
canselectHome CutorpressAlt,H,X.)
This deletes the selected slide from the presentation and copies it to the Clipboard.
2. Clickwhereyouwant the slide toappear;you can clickbetween two slides
or after the presentation’s final slide. Press Ctrl+V. (Alternatively, select
Home PasteorAlt,H,V,K).
The slide appears in its new location.
Tip: You can move a group of slides in the same way. To select a range of slides, select the first slide in
the range; then hold down the Shift key and select the last slide in the range. When you cut and paste, all
the selected slides disappear from their original spot and reappear where you paste them.
Deleting a Slide
To remove a slide, select it in the Slides pane or in Slide Sorter view. Press the Delete
or Backspace key. Alternatively, you can right-click the selected slide and choose
Delete Slide from the shortcut menu.
