Merging Slides (Reusing Slides)

Often people work individually on a project and may need to merge slides from one file into another. To do this, be sure the file you want to include is on your computer (you will need to know where this is located).

To add slides from a file that is located on your computer, do the following:

  1. Open the presentation that you want to add a slide to.
  2. In the pane that contains the Outline and Slides tabs, click Slides, and then click where you want to add a slide (see Image One and we will select locating this directly below Slide 2)..
