Introducing the Slides/Outline Pane

Although the new Microsoft PowerPoint 2007 interface has changed so much with Ribbon and Tabs, it's good to know that the Slides/Outline pane continues to be relatively similar in its look and feel from previous PowerPoint versions.

The Slides/Outline pane is normally placed on the left side of the interface, as shown in Figure 1.

Tip - Is the Slides/Outline pane not visible even in Normal view? Choose the View tab of the Ribbon, and click the Normal button.

About Slide/Outline Pane

The pane contains two tabs, the Slides tab and the Outline tab (see Figure 2).

The two tabs are explained below:

A. The Slides

tab of the pane allows the user to move slides easily from one position to the other as shown in Figure 3.

As shown in Figure 3 above, if the presentation has more slides than the length of the pane can display, you'll get a scroll bar to move up and down.

You can select one or more slides within the Slides tab of the pane, and perform basic slide level edits such as deleting the slide, copying and pasting slides, rearranging them, etc. If you need to view more slides at a time and perform basic slide level edits, you'll want to change the PowerPoint view to Slide Sorter.

B. Outline tab

(see Figure 4) display the title and text content of the slides.

Although PowerPoint 2007 no longer includes any equivalent of the Outlining toolbar, you can right click anywhere in the outline tab to get similar edit options in the context menu as shown in Figure 5.
