We've had questions about the possibility of combining several of our PowerPoint templates into one presentation. So, How do you mix and match slides from different animated templates to make consistent presentations?
It's straightforward to do if you use PowerPoint 2010 or newer. We've put together a video tutorial about how to quickly copy slides from one template to combine slides from various templates.
1. Open both the source and destination presentations in PowerPoint
2. Find the slides that you want to copy over from the source presentation
3. Select and copy those slides in PowerPoint
4. Paste those slides into your destination presentation
5. Adjust the slide layouts as needed
6. Save your new, combined presentation
Hello, this is Judd with presenter media and this video tutorial I'll show you how to download PowerPoint templates from presenter media, load them in PowerPoint and combine multiple slides from multiple templates to make a presentation. So let's get started up in the top menu navigation, go to the far left, where it says PowerPoint templates. When I'm also over that I'll get a dropdown menu of [00:00:30] subcategories I can select, but I'm going to click right into PowerPoint templates by clicking the top navigation category, PowerPoint OFS. When I do that, it opens the PowerPoint templates library, and I can click through multiple pages to find and look at templates, or I can go to the search up here and click on filters and select templates and type in my search keyword here and find template templates [00:01:00] that way. But for this video, I'm just going to go to the first page and find a template I want to use. Uh, I like this one right here. So, I click on the thumbnail for that template. And it takes me to the close-up preview page with the video here that I can, fast forward through. If I want to see the animation inside the, the template and when I'm ready to download, I can click [00:01:30] download PowerPoint template, the screen button right here, or I can scroll down and from template downloads, I can download this P PTX here as well. Some templates have, uh, multiple versions for download, say for keynote or, or an older version of PowerPoint. So it's backwards compatible, but this one just has, has one download. So I'll download that and save it to my downloads [00:02:00] on my computer. And I'm going to go back to PowerPoint templates. So, I'll click on this bread crumb link here to get back to PowerPoint templates, and I'm going to look download another template. So, I'll click on this one here to bring up the closeup page and I'll just download by clicking on the green button here and save to my computer. So, I have two templates downloaded to my computer, and I'm going to open PowerPoint now [00:02:30] and go to file open browse, and then go to downloads on my computer. That's where I save my templates and I'm going to open the first template I downloaded and up here, you'll see, it says protected view. You just need to click enable editing to get started, and I'm going to delete [00:03:00] a lot of these slides out of here. So if, if I hold control on my keyboard, I should be able to click multiple slides. So yeah, you see that multiple slides are highlighted, and I can, I can jump over slides. So, uh, so when I delete it, this, this slide will stay. So, if I hit delete on the keyboard, I'm now left with the three slides I want, and I'm going to load slides from the other [00:03:30] template. I, I download it. So, if I go file open, go browse, and I'm going to load this neon triangles template. And it loads as a separate, uh, PowerPoint template. So I have two different windows open. I have The template that I'm using and the template that I'm going to copy slides from. So holding control, [00:04:00] I will click the slides that I want. Let's see, we'll try these. So once I have the slides selected that I want, uh, I'll right, click on the slides and go copy. And then I'll go over to the template that I was working on before and right, click on any slide and click paste. I'm going to use this first option. It's called use destination [00:04:30] theme. Okay. Speaker 1: And it has loaded in, and now it's using the theme colors for this, this template, but you see the, the background is white and that's not, that's not what we're looking for. And to change that, I'm just going to click on the background, make sure I select the background. So down in this corner, click, uh, format background, [00:05:00] and over here on the right options, we'll load up and I'm going to first, I'm going to go to the, to this top slide and right click on the background. Cause I want to see what color this background is using. So I click into color and you can see that it's using, it's kind of highlighted right there, this little square and the theme colors, which is the first accent color in the theme colors. So, there's, there's [00:05:30], these, these text colors are the first ones. And then there's six accent, accent colors, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, right here that each template will use and pull colors from. So what's happening with this one is the background color is just set to the wrong theme. So if I, uh, format background, go over to the right here and click on that, [00:06:00] it's just set to a white. So, I'm going to find that that color that was selected on the, the slides before this one. So if I go over five, that should be the first accent you can see that says accent one. And I think it was the second one up here and I click on that and nothing happens. So, I'm just going to go down here and say, apply to all. And that's going to set that color for all the slides in this template. [00:06:30] And when I do that, you can see that it now has that same color background for all the slides and they all look like they fit together and go together to make a complete presentation. So, and then in this presentation you can go in and, uh, select a picture, right? Click change picture. I can add one from this device or from stock images that a, , [00:07:00] PowerPoint provides. So let's say I want a, a golf ball in there. Oh, there we go. So I got my, my picture of a, uh, golf ball and a wave. So, go golfing and then go swim in the ocean. So, let's see, I think that's about all for loading PowerPoint templates into PowerPoint and combining slides. If you want to stick around, I'm going to load another, download another template, bring [00:07:30] it into PowerPoint and do it all over again. So, if you want to watch this again to kind of refresh your, your mind and, and see it done again, just, uh, just stick with me here and, and we will, we'll go through the same steps. So, if I go to back to presenter media, go back into the PowerPoint templates library, and I'm going to stay on this front page just for, uh, time wise. [00:08:00] And I'm going to select this, uh, professional template design and let's see. Yeah, I'm going to open or download the template here, save it to my computer, go back into PowerPoint, go file. Open browse. And I'm still in my downloads folder. So it should be the first download. Yep. Right there, [00:08:30] open and enable editing. And let's see, I'm just going to choose the first two slides under the title slide. So holding control, I can click and select multiple slides, right? Click on the slide and choose copy. Now I will go over [00:09:00] to the presentation I'm using to combine multiple slides in and right. Click on a sliding and choose paste and use destination theme, which is the first option in the paste options. And yeah, it looks good. You can see that the background came in and changed, uh, perfectly. , unlike the other, other template we used, [00:09:30] that means that the, the, if I right click on the background here and go for my background, what it did was it was set to use, , the same, uh, accent color as the, the presentation or the template we started with. So we started with this, this template. , this one did not have the correct background, so we just changed [00:10:00] it if you remember, and this one actually was set to the right background. So it just kind of came in, uh, perfectly. So, yeah, that's how you combine multiple slides and PowerPoint. And how did, that's how you download our, our templates from ER media. And that's how you make a, a presentation, uh, very quick, very slick and yeah. Saving a lot of time on design. So, , start playing around [00:10:30] by combining multiple slides and, and making some great animated templates. We'll see you on the next video. Bye. Bye.
Note For Combining Several Animated Templates Into One Presentation.
Combining multiple PowerPoint templates can be a great way to make your presentation more attractive. You can find different templates PresenterMedia that will help you to create a more professional-looking presentation. Just be sure to choose templates that are compatible with each other, and that will work well together.
Remember that the more animated templates you combine, your presentation may become more significant in size. For example, using several templates with embedded video files will increase your presentation's size. Keep this in mind, as it could be a problem if you are distributing the completed presentation.
