Slide Sorter view
divider line between it and the slide area so that the mouse pointer becomes a
doubleheaded arrow, and then hold down the left mouse button as you drag the line up to a new
spot. To get the Thumbnails (or Outline) pane out of the way, drag the divider between it
and the slide editing pane as far as possible to the left.
The left pane is useful because it lets you jump quickly to a specifi c slide by clicking its
thumbnail (Normal view) or some of its text content (Outline view).

Slide Sorter view
If you have ever worked with hard copies of slides, such as 35mm slides, you know that
it can be helpful to lay the slides out on a big table and plan the order in which to show
them. You rearrange them, moving this one here, that one there, until the order is perfect.
You might even start a pile of backups that you will not show in the main presentation but
will hold back in case someone asks a pertinent question. That’s exactly what you can do
with Slide Sorter view, as shown in Figure 20.11. It lays out the slides in miniature, so you
can see the big picture. You can drag the slides around and place them in the perfect order.
You can also return to Normal view to work on a slide by double-clicking the slide.
