Creating a Section
Before you can create a section, you need to insert a slide to mark the section’s start.
(See page 549 for instructions on inserting a new slide.) You can announce the new
section in a slideshow by inserting a Section Header slide, with boxes for a section
title and some text (choose Section Header from the New Slide menu), or you can
start a new section with any slide.
In the Slides pane or in Slide Sorter view, right-click the slide that will be first in the
new section. From the shortcut menu that appears, select Add Section. Now, any
slides that come after the section header slide are part of this section; see Figure 22-5.
To end the current section and start a new one, repeat the process: Insert a new
section header slide after the last slide in the current section (if you want), right-click
the first slide of the new section, and then select Add Section.

Each new section begins
with a section header slide.

Note: When you create your first section, slides from the initial title slide straight through to the first
section slide become the presentation’s default section. You can rename the default section, but you can’t
remove it. PowerPoint lets you remove the default section only if you remove the section and all its slides
(page 607). If you do that, then the first section you created becomes the new default section.
Naming a Section
When PowerPoint creates a section, it simply calls it “Untitled Section” (as you can
see in Figure 22-5). To help keep your sections straight, give them more meaningful
names. Here’s how:
