Author:

Product/Version: PowerPoint 2007 for Windows

OS: Windows XP and higher






With PowerPoint 2007, you will no longer find the feature available in PowerPoint 2003 and previous versions that let you compare your presentations, which was great if you received a presentation back from a colleague and he or she made changes you were not aware of. You can however place both presentations side by side and compare individual slides in PowerPoint 2007, not too great a workaround, but it does allow you to compare the slides.

However that will get you to another roadblock, viewing more than one PowerPoint presentation at the same time is little difficult because you have to keep switching between windows. However, PowerPoint 2007 does allow you to open more than one PowerPoint presentation side by side, follow these steps to compare two presentations in PowerPoint 2007:

  1. Open two presentations.
  2. Access the View tab of the Ribbon. In the Window group, click the Arrange All button (highlighted in Figure 1).

  3. This will arrange both the presentations in different windows side by side, as shown in Figure 2.

Feature List 01 (Layout with Tabs)

The Feature List Layout comprises three sample PowerPoint presentations: one each to create a visual list for 4 features, 5 features, and 6 features. These work great when you have too much information to fit within one slide. This solution lets you use multiple slides, but the visual result is still that of one single slide!
