Organizing Slides in Sections
3. Choose Add Section.
PowerPoint displays a section heading (named Untitled Section) above
the slide you selected in Step 1; refer to Figure 13-2.
4. Click on the selection heading, click the Section icon in the Slides
group, and choose Rename Section.
A Rename Section dialog box appears, as shown in Figure 13-3.
5. Click in the Section name: text box and type a descriptive name for
your section. Then click Rename.
PowerPoint renames your chosen section.
When you add a section to a presentation, PowerPoint automatically creates
a Default Section that contains the first slide and all additional slides up to the
section heading you just created.
Expanding and collapsing a section
After you’ve created at least one section, you can collapse (and expand it).
Collapsing a section temporarily hides those slides in that section from view
so you can focus on the rest of your slides. Expanding a section makes the
slides in that section appear again.
To expand and collapse a section, follow these steps:
1. Click on the Collapse Section arrow that appears to the left of the
section name, as shown in Figure 13-4.
PowerPoint collapses your chosen section and displays the number of
slides(in parentheses) hidden in that collapsed section, as shown in
2. Click the Expand Section arrow that appears to the left of the
collapsed section name.
The section expands, displaying all slides within that section.
