To create a new Title and Content slide:

  • click the Add Slide icon Add Slide icon at the Home or Insert tab of the top toolbar, or
  • right-click any slide in the list and select the New Slide option from the contextual menu, or
  • press the Ctrl+M key combination.

To create a new slide with a different layout:

  1. click the arrow next to the Add Slide icon Add Slide icon at the Home or Insert tab of the top toolbar,
  2. select a slide with the necessary layout from the menu.

    Note: you can change the layout of the added slide anytime. For additional information on how to do that refer to the Set slide parameters section.

A new slide will be inserted after the selected one in the list of the existing slides on the left.

To duplicate a slide:

  1. right-click the necessary slide in the list of the existing slides on the left,
  2. select the Duplicate Slide option from the contextual menu.

The duplicated slide will be inserted after the selected one in the slide list.

To move an existing slide:

  1. left-click the necessary slide in the list of the existing slides on the left,

Hidden slide

Note: use this option if you do not want to demonstrate some slides to your audience, but want to be able to access them if necessary. When you start the slideshow in the Presenter mode, you can see all the existing slides in the list on the left, while hidden slides numbers are crossed out. To skip a hidden slide so that it is not displayed when demonstrating the slideshow to your audience, manually select the following slide in the list of the existing slides on the left. If you wish to show a slide marked as hidden to others, just click it in the slide list on the left - the slide will be displayed. If you start the slideshow in the Preview mode, all the slides (including those that have been marked as hidden) will be displayed.

  2. select the Select All option from the contextual menu.

To select several slides:
