Creating a slide from the Thumbnails pane
Follow these steps to create a new slide from Outline view:
1. Switch to Outline view (View Presentation Views Outline View).
As you learned in Chapter 20, Outline view is like Normal view except the left pane
is an Outline pane, containing a text outline instead of slide thumbnail images.
2. Click at the end of the existing line on the Outline pane that the new slide
should follow.
3. Click Home
New Slide. A new line appears in the Outline pane, with a
slide symbol to its left.

4. Type the title for the new slide. The title appears both in the Outline pane and on
the slide.
You can also create a new slide by starting a new line in the Outline pane and then
promoting it to slide level by pressing Shift+Tab. Follow these steps to insert a new slide in this
way:
1. Position the insertion point at the end of the last line of the slide that the new
slide should follow, and press Enter to start a new line.
2. Press Shift+Tab to promote the new line to the highest level (press it multiple
times if needed), so that a slide icon appears to its left.
3. Type the title for the new slide. The title appears both in the Outline pane and on
the slide.
After creating the slide, you can continue creating its content directly in the Outline pane.
Press Enter to start a new line, and then use Tab to demote, or Shift+Tab to promote, the
line to the desired level. You can also right-click the text and choose Promote or Demote.
Promoting a line all the way to the top level changes the line to a new slide title.
Creating a slide from the Thumbnails pane
Here’s a very quick method for creating a new slide, based on the default layout. It doesn’t
get much easier than this:
1. Switch to Normal view if you’re not already there (View Presentation
Views
Normal).
2. In the Thumbnails pane at left, click the slide that the new slide should follow.
3. Press Enter. A new slide appears. You can also right-click the slide that the new
one should follow and choose New Slide.
The drawback to creating a slide in any of the ways you have learned about so far in this
chapter is that you cannot specify the layout. You have to change the layout afterwards
if you don’t get the kind you want. To choose a layout other than the default one, see the
next section.
