92. Create a slide list
A slide list is very useful for navigating when you deliver your presentation, especially if you may be jumping around. Display the Outline tab of the Outline pane. Press Alt+Shift+1 to collapse the entire outline to just slide titles. This shortcut toggles between collapsing and expanding the outline. (In PowerPoint 2007, right-click in the Outline pane, and choose Collapse> Collapse All.) Choose File> Print. (In PowerPoint 2007, choose Office Button> Print.) From the Print What drop-down list, choose Outline View. Click OK.

"I teach an MBA course Business Presentations. I also develop and conduct business skills seminars. I learned how to use PowerPoint the hard way; self taught. Your book, 101 Tips Every PowerPoint User Should Know, taught me many "little" things I did not know. I keep it close by as a handy reference." -Keith Braden

"I wanted to tell you that I learned so much from your "101 Tips Every PowerPoint User Should Know" e-book. My favorites tips were #47-Use blank Action Button, #52-Recolor WMF graphics, #59-Animate charts, #75,82-On Using Hyperlinks, and #78-Have Previous Slide button when text animation.  In addition, your bonus chapter 'A' on Keyboard shortcuts was invaluable. Thank you for showing me how to use the "Power" in PowerPoint." -Dave Lewinski

“I love it! This will become a reference that stays on my desk for daily use.” - Rebecca Renner, Creative Minds, Inc.

"I have been doing PowerPoint for years. I liked the easy-to-read directions and the fact that they worked the first time. I like being able to just read it step-by-step and not have to guess where I missed a step and why it isn't working. It has helped me take a step up in creating presentations that are even more professional looking and make me look even better - as Billy Crystal as Caesar Romero says, "It doesn't matter how you feel, you look marvelous." - Regina Welch

"I have to build and give presentations on a regular basis and I would much rather spend my time pondering the philosophy, contents and flow of the presentation than looking for commands and shortcuts. Since I already own How to Do Everything with Microsoft Office PowerPoint (2003 and 2007), I knew your style and felt confident that I would enjoy the document, which I did.

  • I especially appreciate the layout, presenting useful hints and tips in short sections. One can immediately try them and see the results. Grouping related tips in chapters makes learning easier. One can also scan a given chapter and quickly find the information.
  • I also liked the Bonus sections, especially the one listing the keyboards shortcuts....
  • Since it is easy to read, I can peruse it regularly and keep the contents fresh in my memory."

- Yves Van Chestein

"I’ve used PowerPoint for years - thought I knew it all - but I learned new things in almost every tip. I’m sure you will, too. For example: • #6 Import text for an entire presentation or for several slides • #16 Align text around a decimal point • #22 Quickly replace one font with another • #67 Extract sound files from a narrated PowerPoint presentation • #90 Add flexibility to your handouts by sending to Word • #91 Protect your presentation." - Phyllis Khare, phyllisonthebeach blog
