Combine Slides from Multiple PowerPoint Templates

We’ve had questions about the possibility of combining several of our templates into one presentation.  Essentially, how do you mix and match slides from different animated templates?

It’s actually very easy to do if you are using PowerPoint 2007 or newer.  I’ve put together a video tutorial about how to use the “Reuse Slides” function in PowerPoint 2010 and PowerPoint 2007 to combine slides from various templates.

Note For Combining Several Animated Templates Together.

Remember that the more animated templates you combine the larger your presentation will become.  A number of video files will make your presentation quite bulky.  This could be a problem if you are distributing the completed presentation.

Please leave a comment if you find this tutorial helpful or have any questions.

Mac PowerPoint 2008 and 2011 instructions.

In Mac PowerPoint, inserting slides from other presentations or templates work pretty much the same way but the command is labeled differently.  The function is located under the “Insert” menu.  Look for Insert/Slides From/Other Presentations.  See screen shot below:

In the slide finder, be sure to check “Keep Design of Original Slide” to retain the formatting, animations and other graphic elements.  Otherwise PowerPoint will only copy the text and not slides design.
