Creating a custom slide show Microsoft PowerPoint 2007

    You may have a presentation organized for one audience (engineers and scientists) but need to give the same presentation to a different audience (sales executives). Although you could copy your original presentation and then modify it, now you'll be stuck with two copies of the same information. And, if you modify the information in one presentation, you have to modify the same information in the second (or third or fourth) presentation.

    To avoid this problem, PowerPoint lets you create custom slide shows based on an existing presentation. Such a custom slide show can selectively show slides in a different order. To create a custom slide show, you need to define the order you want to display the slides.

    To arrange the order of a custom slide show, follow these steps:

    1. Click the Slide Show tab.

    2. Click the Custom Slide Show icon in the Start Slide Show group.

    A pull-down menu appears.

    3. Choose Custom Shows.

    The Custom Shows dialog box appears, as shown in Figure 12-9.

    5. Click in the Slide Show Name text box and type a name for your custom slide show.

    6. Click a slide in the Slides in Presentation list box and then click the Add button.

    This tells PowerPoint which existing slides you want to reuse in your custom slide show.
