Microsoft PowerPoint 2016 Step by Step

Add and remove slides

To add a slide based on any slide layout 1. Select the slide after which you want to add the new slide. 2. On the Home tab, in the Slides group, click the New Slide arrow to display the New Slide gallery and menu. 3. In the gallery, click a slide layout thumbnail to add a slide based on that slide layout. Copy and import slides and content You can reuse slides from one presentation in another, in one of two ways: you can copy the slides from the original presentation to the new presentation, or you can use the Reuse Slides tool, which displays the content of an original presentation and allows you to choose the slides you want to insert in the new presentation. Within a presentation, you can duplicate an existing slide to reuse it as the basis for a new slide. You can then customize the duplicated slide instead of having to create it from scratch. If you frequently include a certain type of slide in your presentations, such as a slide that introduces you to the audience, you don’t have to re-create the slide for each presentation. You can easily reuse a slide from one presentation in a different pres­ entation. (You can use the same techniques to reuse a slide from someone else’s presentation to standardize the appearance or structure of slide content with other members of your organization.) The slide takes on the formatting of its new presenta- tion unless you specify otherwise.


PowerPoint automatically applies the new theme to reused slides
