Inserting Content from External Sources
If you select from the Outline pane in Outline view, make sure that you click the icon to the left of the slide’s title so
that the entire slide is selected; if you select only part of the text on the slide, then only the selected part is copied.
2. Press Ctrl+C. You can also click Home
Copy, or right-click the
selection and click Copy.
3. Select the slide that the pasted slide or slides should follow. Or, if working in
Outline view, click in the Outline pane to place the insertion point where you want
the insertion.
4. Press Ctrl+V. You can also click Home Clipboard Paste, or right-click the
destination and click Paste.
PowerPoint also has a Duplicate Selected Slides command that does the same thing as a
copy and paste. Although it may be a little faster, it gives you less control as to where the
pasted copies will appear. PowerPoint pastes the slides immediately after the last slide
in the selection. For example, if you selected slides 1, 3, and 6 and issued the Duplicate
Selected Slides command, then the copies are placed after slide 6.
Follow these steps to try out the Duplicate Selected Slides command.
1. Select the slide or slides to be duplicated.
2. On the Home tab in the Slides group, click the bottom part of the New Slide
button to open its menu.
3. Click Duplicate Selected Slides. As an alternative, you can right-click a slide (or a
group of selected slides) in the Thumbnails pane and choose Duplicate Slide.
To make duplication even faster, you can place the Duplicate Selected Slides command on the Quick Access Toolbar.
To do that, right-click the command on the menu and choose Add to Quick Access Toolbar.
