With the use of Sections, you can make your presentation slides easy to manage. Adding and renaming Sections enables you to logically categorize your presentation slides. Even after dividing your slides into Sections, you will want to move slides from one Section to another. Follow these steps to learn how to do so in PowerPoint 2013:

  1. Open your presentation that is already added with sections. Access Slide Sorter view and click upon the slide that you want to move to a different Section. In Figure 1, below you can see that we selected slide 7 within the Section named 'Timeline' (shown highlighted in blue within Figure 1), the selected slide will be surrounded by a red highlight (refer to Figure 1 again). You can also select more than one slide if required.

  2. Drag the selected slide(s) with the primary mouse button held down to the Section where you want it to be placed. In Figure 2 below you can see that the selected slide is being dragged into a new Section named 'Next Steps and Action Items' (shown highlighted in blue within Figure 2). You can see a red highlight around the slide being dragged within the new Section, as shown in Figure 2. You can also drag the slide to a position between two existing slides.

  3. Release the mouse button at the position where the slide is to be placed. This will move the selected slide from the previous Section to the new Section, as shown in Figure 3.

  4. Similarly, you can select multiple slides (both sequential or non sequential) and drag to a new Section.
Tip: Hold the Ctrl key while you drag slides from one Section to another to make a copy of the slide rather than moving it altogether.

Pictures in Presentations

Is a picture is worth a thousand words? You probably have heard this adage so often that we decided not to repeat this phrase throughout this book! Now here’s some more info: the human brain uses a larger part of its area to store visual information rather than textual content. And that’s possibly because a picture describes so much more than text.
