Creating a Custom Slideshow
Before the Show:
Prep Work
Recording from Current Slide”. In the Record Slide Show dialog box (Figure 24-4),
tell PowerPoint you want to record both the narrations and the timings, to make sure
your narration stays in sync with what’s happening on the slide.
As you record, the new recording overwrites the previous one. When you’re done,
don’t move to the next slide, or you’ll overwrite its recordings, too. Instead, when
you’re done with the slide you’re re-recording, press Esc.
Turning off narration
If you don’t want narrations to play during a slideshow, you have these options:
Turn off narration for this slideshow. On the Slide Show tab, turn off the Play
Narrations checkbox (Alt, S, P toggles it off and on). This keeps narrations as
part of the presentation but silences them when you start a slideshow.
Remove narration from a slide. Select the slide (or group of slides) whose
narration you want to delete. On the Slide Show tab, click the Record Slide Show
button’s down arrow, and then select Clear Clear Narration on Current Slide
(Alt, S, C, N) to remove the narration.
Get rid of narrations. To remove narrations completely from your
presentation, open the Slide Show tab, click the Record Slide Show button’s down arrow,
and then select Clear Clear Narrations on All Slides (Alt, S, C, A). No more
narrations on any slide in the presentation.
Creating a Custom Slideshow
A single presentation can serve more than one purpose. For example, you might
have a short and a long version of the same slideshow. PowerPoint lets you pick
and choose the slides you want in each version, and you can create as many custom
slideshows as you want from a single “parent” presentation.
Start by opening the presentation you want to use as the basis for the new custom
version, and then follow these steps:
1. OntheSlideShowtab,clickCustomSlideShow CustomShows(Alt,S,M,W).
The Custom Shows dialog box, shown in Figure 24-5, opens. After you’ve
created a custom show or two, they appear in a list here.
2. ClicktheNewbutton.
This opens the Define Custom Show dialog box, shown in Figure 24-6. The left
side displays a list of all the slides in your presentation. On the right is a box that
lists the slides in the custom show as you create it.
3. Startbynamingyourcustomslideshowinthe“Slideshowname”textbox.In
theleft-hand“Slidesinpresentation”box,selectaslidethatyouwantinthe

The selected slide appears in the right-hand “Slides in custom show” box.
