A custom showis simply a grouping of slides within your
presentation that you can present separately from your main presentation
or that you can hyperlink to. This can come in handy if you need to

but you can create custom shows to present to individual groups
that have slightly different needs.
For details on hyperlinking to your custom show, see Chapter 13.
