Getting Started with Sections

Getting Started with Sections

Sections in PowerPoint is a feature that lets you organize slides into segments or divisions for easier management. For instance, if you have many slides, you may find the content difficult to handle, edit, or even deliver. And if you have a few slides, even then you may have the need to organize them logically in Sections. The Section option within PowerPoint 2016 enables you to divide your presentation slides into logical parts.

Adding and Renaming Sections

Adding and Renaming Sections

Dividing a large number of slides into Sections helps you to manage them better. And even for presentations that do not have a large number of slides, you can benefit from Sections. However, the mere act of dividing slides into Sections will not achieve much unless you create and name these Sections in a proper manner to represent what the slides within each Section contain. In this tutorial, let us learn how to add Sections, and also how to rename them.

Moving Slides Between Sections

Moving Slides Between Sections

Sections make your presentation slides easy to manage. Plus, adding and renaming Sections enables you to logically categorize your presentation slides. But what happens next in a logical workflow may get you some worries. Even after dividing your slides into Sections, you will want to move slides from one Section to another.

Removing Sections

Removing Sections

To logically categorize your slides, so that they can be easily managed and grouped, you should use Sections option. You are not just limited to adding and renaming Sections. You can also move slides from one Section to another, change the order of Sections, or collapse/expand Sections etc. Of course, you can also remove a Section.
