Viewing a Presentation
3. Choose one of the following:
• Click the mouse or press the spacebar to view the next slide.
• Press Esc to exit your presentation.
If you have a large presentation consisting of 300 slides, you may not want to
view the first 290 slides just to test how your last 10 slides look. To avoid this
problem, click the From Current Slide icon in Step 2.
Creating a custom slide show
You may have a presentation organized for one audience (engineers and
scientists) but need to give the same presentation to a different audience (sales
executives). Although you could copy your original presentation and then
modify it, now you’ll be stuck with two copies of the same information. And,
if you modify the information in one presentation, you have to modify the
same information in the second (or third or fourth) presentation.
To avoid this problem, PowerPoint lets you create custom slide shows based
on an existing presentation. Such a custom slide show can selectively show
slides in a different order. To create a custom slide show, you need to define
the order you want to display the slides.
To arrange the order of a custom slide show, follow these steps:
1. Click the Slide Show tab.
2. Click the Custom Slide Show icon in the Start Slide Show group.
A pull-down menu appears.
3. Choose Custom Shows.
The Custom Shows dialog box appears, as shown in Figure 13-12.
