Chapter 8: Add sound and movement to slides

Hyperlink to additional resources Presentations often include URLs of websites that provide additional informa- tion related to the presentation topic. When a presentation will be viewed electronically, the URLs can be formatted as hyperlinks so that the websites can be accessed directly from the presentation. Hyperlinks can also provide access to information that might be on a hidden slide in the presentation, or in a separate file. TIP  If you use Microsoft Outlook, you can also use a hyperlink to open an email message window so that people viewing the presentation can easily contact you. Hyperlinks are most frequently in text format, but you can attach a hyperlink to any object—for example, an image such as a shape, logo, or picture. Clicking the hyperlinked object then takes you directly to the linked location. Editing the object does not disrupt the hyperlink; however, deleting the object also deletes the hyperlink. The simplest method of creating a hyperlink is to enter a URL in a text box and then press the Enter key. PowerPoint automatically inserts the hyperlink and formats the URL so that people recognize it as a hyperlink. If you want the same hyperlink to appear on every slide in a presentation, attach the hyperlink to text or an object on the presentation’s master layout. For information about slide masters, see “Customize slide masters and lay- outs” in Chapter 12, “Create custom presentation elements.”
