Number it Your Way in MS PowerPoint

Dennis Faas's picture

Sometimes you give a PowerPoint presentation that involves more than one PowerPoint file. Isn't it just a tad confusing having the slide number of all the different files restart at number one? I have always thought so!

The good news is you can adjust the slide numbering without merging the presentations together!

Follow the steps below:

  • Click on File | Page Setup.  
  • In the latest version (2007), use the Design ribbon.  
  • Select the Number Slides From.  
  • Enter the number you want for the first slide in the presentation.  
  • Click OK.

Ah, a much easier and less confusing solution!
