Reorganizing your Slide Order PowerPoint

Guest Author - Chris Curtis

During the design phase of your presentation, you may want to change the order of the slides to make your presentation flow more coherently. There are three methods that you can use to accomplish this task:

1. Outline Tab Normal View
2. Slides Tab Normal View
3. Slide Sorter View

Outline Tab
The outline tab allows you to manipulate your slide presentation. You can use it to reorder an individual slide content and to reorder the slides. To move your slide around within the presentation using the Outline Tab:
Click and hold on the slide icon next to the slide number. Notice that when you click on it the entire slide content is selected (highlighted)
Drag the icon to the new position desired. You will see a line indicator showing you where the slide will be repositioned.
Release your mouse key when you have it in the position you want.

Slides Tab
When the Slides Tab is visable, you can use it to easily move your slides from one position to another.
Click and hold on the slide you want to move
Drag it to the new position desired. . You will see a line indicator showing you where the slide will be repositioned.
Release your mouse key when you have it in the position you want

The slides will automatically renumber as you rearrange them.

Slide Sorter View
The slide sorter view is particularly useful after you have completed the draft of your presentation. You can use it to evaluate the flow of your presentation since it displays all of your slides at once in thumbnail form. Use it to make changes to the slide order and instantaneously see the results of the changes you have made. You can also use it to establish and preview your slide transitions and animation effects. The process of repositioning slides in the Slide Sorter View is essentially the same as using the Slides Tab.
Click and hold on the slide you want to move
Drag it to the new position desired. . You will see a line indicator showing you where the slide will be repositioned.
Release your mouse key when you have it in the position you want

The slides will automatically renumber as you rearrange them.

Personally, I generally use the Slide Sorter View to finalize my project. I like this view because I can see the flow clearly and I can also work with the various transitional options here. I will admit to using the other options sometimes. As an instructor, I realize that each of us work differently to arrive at the same place in the end and Microsoft is rich with options that accomplish the same task. Thus, I try to present a balanced perspective so that my "audience" can find the method that is most comfortable for them. My advice is to play around with each of these options and chose the methodology that works best for you.
