Who hid my slides?

August 22, 2005

Have you ever finished creating a lengthy presentation, and then discovered that only certain slides need to be viewed for a shorter presentation? You have that gut feeling the entire presentation will be needed one day, so you don’t want to delete the unwanted slides. What can you do quickly and accurately? You can hide slides.

Open the presentation, switch to Slide Sorter View. Select the slides you want to hide. (Reminder: click once on one slide, hold down the Shift key and click on other slides you want to select.) Right-click on one of the selected slides, choose Hide Slide. If you’re a button-on-the-toolbar type, click the Hide Slide button; menu folks, choose Slide Show, Hide Slide. Do the reverse to unhide a slide!

If you do the above and hide slides, can you print the entire presentation without unhiding the slides? Yes, in the File, Print dialog box there is an option to Print Hidden Slides.
