Insert Section Breaks in PowerPoint
How to Insert Section Breaks in PowerPoint
The 2010 version of PowerPoint, introduces us to a new feature in order to organize our slides, which is called Sections. We can use this feature to split our slides into groups (useful for large presentations and for presentations with many presenters). With this feature we can also split our slides depending on the Themes.
Sections that we use to organize our slides in a Presentation are similar with the use of folders that we use to organize our files. When we have a large presentation, the titles of the slides and the numbering doesn’t help us that much going through the slides, which has a result for us to lose track of the slides.
Let’s see how we can use this feature:
1. We start PowerPoint 2010 and open our Presentation.
2. We click in the space between the two slides where we want the section to begin. Alternatively, we could select the slide which the section will start from. The section break will start right before the selected slide.
3. On the Home Tab, and in the area Slides of the Ribbon, we select the command Section and from the drop down menu we select the command Add Section, as we can see in the image below.
4. From the moment we have inserted a section break, we can rename it, so we can distinguish the one section from the other section. In order to do this, we must select the Section and do a right click of the mouse button, and from the shortcut menu that appears to select the command Rename Section, as we can see in the image below.
In the image below, we can see the Rename Section window, where we just type in the name that we want and press the Rename button.
5. Each slide that we add under the Section break, the slides will automatically be a part of the section. Once we have created all the slides and have separated them into Sections, we are able to collapse the different sections so we could see them one below the other. We must at least select one section and with a right click of the mouse button, the shortcut menu will appear and from there we select the Collapse All command as we can see below.
From the shortcut we can see that we can do the following:
Remove Section & Slides
Remove All Sections
Move Section Up
Move Section Down
All the commands that are relative with Sections that we find when we do the right click of our mouse, we can locate them from the drop down menu Sections, which is found on the Home Tab and in the area Slides of the ribbon as we can see below.
