Use Slide Sections in Your Presentation
In PowerPoint 2010, you can divide your presentation into logical groups (sections), which aids in organizing and speeds navigation of your presentation. If you create large presentations or work with others on presentations, you will find sections to be particularly valuable. And, with sections added to your presentation, printing becomes much simpler, as you can now print groups of slides.
To Add Sections to Your Presentation 1 In the Slides pane, right-click between two slides. 2 On the Home tab in the Slides group, click the Section button, and then click Add Section. * 3
In the Slides pane, right-click the section label, click Rename Section, and in the Section name text box, type your section title, and then click Rename. *
To Collapse and Expand Sections
By default, sections are expanded. * To collapse sections, click the arrow next to the section name. The slides are not displayed, only the section titles. * To expand sections, click the arrow next to a collapsed section name. The slides in that section are now visible.
The following images show the expanded section and a collapsed section:
To Print Sections 1 Click the File tab in the upper-left corner, next to the Home tab to display the Backstage™ view. 4 Click the Print tab, under Settings, click the Print All Slides list to expand your selection, under Sections select the section you want to print, and then click Print.
Create Slide Transitions
With PowerPoint 2010, you can use transitions between slides that now include motion paths and rotations in a true 3-D space. You can use the new PowerPoint 2010 UI gallery to make appropriate choices, with transitions for general purpose, emphasis, or special use as well as in making modifications to transitions in use. You can also choose from a range of new sounds to complement transitions.
To Create a Slide Transition
On the Transitions tab, in the Transition to This Slide group: * Click a transition to apply to your slide. * -OR- * Click Effect Options to select additional variations for the selected transition.
Use the Animation Painter
The Animation Painter in PowerPoint 2010 allows you to format multiple animations just as you would use the Format Painter to format text. You can copy animations from one slide to another, to multiple slides within a presentation, to the slide master, or from different presentations.
In PowerPoint 2010, you can use the Animations tab to hover over an animation in the gallery to see how it will look, apply animations, and modify or replace animations.
To Use the Animation Painter 1 Select an image or object that has an existing animation in your presentation. 5 On the Animations tab, in the Advanced Animation group, click Animation Painter. * 6 Click on the image or object to which you want to apply the animation.
