Consolidating powerpoint presentations

Power Point includes a Keep Source Formatting option that retains the template format for each slide.

For example, a presentation with the Ion template showcasing your current products can include some slides with the Organic template promoting your future products to help your clients view the contrast between your timely products. Click the “Browse” button in the Reuse Slides pane and then click “Browse File” to bring up a list of your files in a dialog box.

Note For Combining Several Animated Templates Together.

Remember that the more animated templates you combine the larger your presentation will become.

Do you have multiple Power Point presentations that you need to combine or merge into one presentation?

I’ve had to do this myself a couple of times and one of the most important aspects when merging presentations is whether you want to maintain the format and theme of the inserted presentation or have it match the theme of the main presentation.Click the Power Point file that contains the different template and then click “Open” in the dialog box to display the slides in the Reuse Slides pane. Click the slide in the left pane where you want to insert the slide from the Reuse Slides pane. Click the preferred slide in the Reuse Slides pane to copy to the left pane and presentation.For example, click slide "3" if you want to insert a slide after this slide. Continue scrolling and selecting slides from the left pane and inserting slides from the right pane to expand your first Power Point presentation with the combined slides.It’s actually very easy to do if you are using Power Point 2007 or newer.I’ve put together a video tutorial about how to use the “Reuse Slides” function in Power Point 2010 and Power Point 2007 to combine slides from various templates.To know how to use it, you need to take a look at this post Shen is an Associate Professor in the Computer Science Department, National University of Singapore (NUS).
