Figure 22-7:
Use this dialog box
to create a hyperlink
that displays the
selected slide when
you click it during a
slideshow. Slides are
identified by number
and title (if the slide
has one). If a slide is
hidden, its number
appears in
parentheses, like Slide 9 in this
example.
…and choose a slide to link to from this list.
Creating a Table of Contents for Your Presentation
A table of contents is useful because it lets you jump straight to any topic in your
presentation, without guessing at the slide number. First, create section header slides
for the main sections of your presentation. Then, insert a new slide immediately
after the presentation’s initial title slide. On the new slide, create and format a list that
names all the presentation’s main sections.
Select the first item on the list, click Insert Hyperlink (Alt, N, I), and then create a
link to the first section header slide. Repeat the process for each item on the list,
linking the name of each section to the appropriate section header. When you’ve linked
each section name on the list to its section header, you’ve got a table of contents for
your presentation.
Linking to a Hidden Slide
As page 601 explains, hidden slides don’t appear when you run the presentation
from the Slide Show tab—that is, unless you create a link to the hidden slide. When
you link to a hidden slide, clicking the link tells PowerPoint to move to and display
the hidden slide.
