How can you bookmark slides or groups of slides in PowerPoint

  • Thread starter Sandpiper
  • Start date Sep 9, 2009

There is no way to bookmark or index particular slides in PowerPoint. No way to make contents pages either. You have to wade through the whole project to find a particular slide.  

Steve Rindsberg said: No bookmarks, it's true, but it's pretty easy to work around that. Go to a slide you want to bookmark. Add a text box just off the slide and type some unique text into it. "Bookmark:searchterm" for example. Now you can press Ctrl+F to bring up the Find dialog box and type in the unique text you're after. PPT will take you to the slide immediately. ============================== PPT Frequently Asked Questions http://www.pptfaq.com/ PPTools add-ins for PowerPoint http://www.pptools.com/ Don't Miss the PPTLive User Conference!

How to link to another slide in the same powerpoint presentation.

If you know you'll be referring to the content of a previously-viewed slide at some point during your presentation, it might be useful to insert a link pointing back to that slide for quick access.

Quick Links

Linking to another slide in the same presentation, using the zoom feature.

If you know you'll be referring to the content of a previously-viewed slide at some point during your presentation, it might be useful to insert a link pointing back to that slide for quick access. Here's how to set it up.

Open your presentation and navigate to the slide that will contain the hyperlink. Once there, highlight the text, object, shape, or image to which you want to attach the link.

highlight text

Next, head over to the “Insert” tab and click the “Link” button.

link in links group

In the Insert Hyperlink window that opens, select “Place in This Document” on the “Link To” list on the left.

place in this document

On the right, under the “Select a place in this document” list, select the destination slide.

The four options at the top of the list let you select the first or last slide in the presentation or the slide that comes right before or after the slide containing the link.

If you need to link to a different slide, expand the “Slide Titles” category. This shows you a list of all the slides in your document. If a slide has a title, the list shows the title. If a slide does not have a title, the list shows it as something like "Slide 7."

Click the slide to which you want to link.

slide titles

A preview of the selected slide will appear in the window to the right. If you’re unsure which slide it was that you needed to link back to, this will come in handy.

Once you’re finished, click “OK” and PowerPoint will insert your link.

hyperlinked text

As a matter of good practice, double-check to make sure the link is working properly. To test the link in the regular slide editing view, Ctrl-click the linked object. To test the link when playing your presentation, you don't have to hold the Ctrl key; just click the linked object.

If for some reason you need to remove the hyperlink, right-click the object and then select “Remove Link.”

remove link

If you’re using PowerPoint for Office 365 or PowerPoint 2019, then you can take advantage of the new “Zoom” feature, which lets you seamlessly transition to any slide in the presentation by placing it inside another slide.

First, go to the slide that you'll be linking from. Using “Normal View,” click and drag the slide you want to insert from the left-hand pane to the current slide.

Once the slide is inserted, a new “Format” tab will appear. Click it.

format tab

In the “Zoom Options” group, check the box next to “Zoom Transition.” You’re also able to specify the duration of the transition, with 01.00 being the default.

zoom transition

Now let’s take a look at what happens when we click that slide during our presentation.

As you can see in the above GIF, clicking the “Introduction” slide that we placed inside our “Information” transitions back to the "Introduction" slide. Clicking again brings us back to the original "Information" slide.

Link to Specific Slides in Other PowerPoint Presentations

This works for Word and Excel documents as well

Author avatar

Have you ever needed to link your PowerPoint presentation to another one? What if you could link it to a specific slide in the other presentation? What if you could link it to a Word or Excel document as well (and specify exactly which part of the document you want to open)? Well, it can be done and I’ll show you how in this post.

To start with, you will need to have your PowerPoint presentation as well as the other file that you want to link to. In this example, we will be linking two PowerPoint presentations together and jumping immediately to Slide 2 on the second presentation.

Link Multiple PowerPoint Presentations

Step 1 : Find or create the object that you want for your link. This could be a picture, clipart, text, etc. Select that object and click on the Hyperlink button under the Insert  tab. This should work just fine on Office 2007, 2010 and 2013.

insert hyperlink

Step 2 : Now the hyperlink dialog box has opened, browse for and find your file that you want to link to. Click once to highlight the file, but do not close the dialog box yet because there is one more step to complete.

Note : If you finish at this step, you will simply link to the entire presentation or document, instead of to a specific location within that document.

hyperlink file

Step 3 : Click on the Bookmark button located on the right hand side of the dialog box. This button will open another window where you can select the location you wish to jump to in the linked document.

If you are linking to a PowerPoint presentation, it will display all of the different slides. Select the location in the presentation you want and press OK.

place in document

Step 4 : Click on the appropriate buttons to close and save the changes you just made.

Step 5 : Test the link to make sure it works properly. Note:  Hyperlinks in PowerPoint only work when you are in slideshow mode.

This feature can be very useful if you want to use a portion of a different presentation in your own, but don’t want to make your presentation very long in the process. It is also useful if you want to tailor your presentation to different audiences.

For some audiences, you can go through your presentation without clicking on the hyperlink, but others might need more details, so then you click on the hyperlink and show them the additional information.

It’s also worth noting that when you link to another slide in a different presentation, it will show all slides after the linked slide that are in the second presentation before coming back to the next slide in the original presentation.

Link PowerPoint to Word or Excel

Unfortunately, the process for linking to a Word bookmark or Excel named range is not as straightforward.  If you follow the steps above and select a Word file and then click on Bookmark, you’ll get the following error message:

Microsoft PowerPoint could not open this file or could not parse a file of this type. 

powerpoint error

So what are you supposed to do now? Well, you have to manually type in the bookmark name or named range after the path in the address box.

link word powerpoint

First, select the file and then add a # symbol and the name of the bookmark to the end. Click OK and then test out the link to make sure it works. In case you aren’t sure how to create bookmarks in Word, all you have to do is select any location on your Word doc and then go to the Insert tab and click on Bookmark .

add bookmark word

Go ahead and give your bookmark a name and that’s about it. When you click on the link from your PowerPoint presentation, it will open the Word at the exact location of the bookmark in the document.

bookmark name

In Excel, select the cells and then go ahead and type in a name in the small box that shows you the cell numbers and then press Enter.

named range excel

When you click on the link, it will open Excel and the entire range will automatically be selected so you don’t have to go around trying to search for it.

Overall, the hyperlink feature is pretty useful if you have a presentation that would be supplemented with links out to data or supporting documents. If you have any questions, post a comment. Enjoy!

5 golden rules of PowerPoint design

february 6, 2024

A smiling woman with blonde hair, glasses, and a leopard print cardigan poses with her hands on her hips in front of an olive green background.

by Deb Ashby

Wondering how to design the perfect PowerPoint presentation? It's easier than you think–just follow five simple rules to get started:

1. Consider using templates

When building a slide deck, it’s important to maintain consistency throughout. We want to ensure we are using consistent font styles, colors and themes. This can be tricky when designing from scratch, so why not start from a template?

Microsoft Create contains hundreds of pre-made, customizable PowerPoint templates, which means you don’t have to start from scratch and the fonts and colors are already set for you.

Simply choose a template from the gallery, customize it as needed, and you are done!

Screenshots of slides in a branded PowerPoint presentation, in hues of navy, maroon, and brown.

2. No walls of text

We’ve all seen PowerPoint presentations where slides contain too much text. The human brain struggles to listen and read at the same time. If you are presenting to an audience, keep the text on slides to a minimum.

Consider employing the “5-5-5" rule. No more than 5 lines, no more than 5 words, no more than 5 minutes. Think short and sharp memory joggers instead of rambling paragraphs.

Where possible, consider replacing text with visuals to represent your point. People remember images more than words.

A minimalist, black and white PowerPoint template

3. Be mindful of colors and fonts

No one wants their audience to leave with a headache after an hour of straining to read slides. We need to ensure that our presentation is easy to read for everyone – even for those in the nosebleed seats at the back! Think about the font you are using. Is it appropriate for the presentation? What about the font size? Can people at the back easily read? What about people with visual impairment? Ensure all text is at least 24pts.

When it comes to color, ensure all slides have good contrast. Dark backgrounds should have light font and vice versa.

4. Use animation sparingly

Animation can really liven up an otherwise flat presentation. However, it should be used thoughtfully and sparingly. Too much of the wrong type of animation with objects flying in and zooming around the screen, while fun, can look confusing and unprofessional.

Animation should be subtle. With every animation you add, ask yourself, "Is this going to enhance my presentation or distract from it?"

5. Engage your audience

When presenting to an audience, there is usually an awkward time before the presentation begins while the speaker waits for everyone to arrive. During this time, people may start scrolling on their phones or get distracted with work emails, and it can be hard to pull the audience back.

To avoid this issue, work to grab your audience's attention before the presentation even starts. Instead of just having the title slide on the screen, consider creating "kiosk slides." These are a series of slides that contain a combination of interesting things for the audience to look at or engage with. Maybe you have an interesting image? A funny quote or fun facts? Or maybe there is a question you want them to think about prior to the session?

Create these slides and have them automatically cycle round before the presentation starts.

Trigger text to play over a video

Your browser does not support video. Install Microsoft Silverlight, Adobe Flash Player, or Internet Explorer 9.

In PowerPoint, you can mark points in a video by using bookmarks, and you can use these bookmarks to trigger animation effects—such as overlaid text. Watch this video to learn how.

Trigger text to appear as an overlay on a video

You can add text to fade in and out while your video plays. By adding animation effects to your text, it gives you more control over how and when your text appears.

Trigger an animation effect to play

In PowerPoint, you can mark points in a video by using bookmarks, and then, use the bookmarks to trigger effects.

One effect is a text overlay that appears on the video. As the video plays, a line of text fades in, and then, fades out.

The text effect is triggered by two bookmarks I have set on the video: The first one triggers the text fading in, the second one triggers the text fading out.

I’ll recreate these effects, so you can see each step.

Here is the slide at an earlier point. I have inserted the video, and this is the text I want to play.

To add the bookmarks, I select the video, and click the PLAYBACK tab in VIDEO TOOLS , which is where I find the Add Bookmark command.

I’ll use this playbar to set the bookmarks.

I click the Play control, and Pause where I want the text to fade in...about here.

Then I click Add Bookmark . I click Play again to resume the action, and Pause where I want the text to fade out, about here.

I’ll add the second bookmark there.

So, the bookmarks are in place. Next, I’ll add the text animation effects. I’ll open the Animation Pane to help with that.

The effect here refers to the video, which sets up automatically as its own trigger when I insert it.

The animation effects that I need to add will go on this text box.

To apply the effects, first I’ll apply a Fade entrance, and then I’ll click Add Animation and add a second effect, a Fade exit.

I don’t want the fades to be too fast, so I’ll select them, and increase their Duration a little bit.

When I click Play All , you can see that the text fades in and out.

The last step is to make the bookmarks trigger the text effects.

I’ll select the first Fade effect, the entrance; then I’ll click Trigger , point to On Bookmark , and choose Bookmark 1 .

Now I’ll select the Fade exit, click Trigger , On Bookmark , and choose Bookmark 2 .

Each fade effect is now triggered by a bookmark. The final thing I’ll do is move the text up a bit on the slide, so it doesn’t crowd the video.

Let’s play the slide. I click the video to start it, and there is the text fading in and fading out.

Now that you know how to use PowerPoint triggers, you can find your own creative heights with animation.

Title: a self-supervised framework for learning whole slide representations.

Abstract: Whole slide imaging is fundamental to biomedical microscopy and computational pathology. However, whole slide images (WSIs) present a complex computer vision challenge due to their gigapixel size, diverse histopathologic features, spatial heterogeneity, and limited/absent data annotations. These challenges highlight that supervised training alone can result in suboptimal whole slide representations. Self-supervised representation learning can achieve high-quality WSI visual feature learning for downstream diagnostic tasks, such as cancer diagnosis or molecular genetic prediction. Here, we present a general self-supervised whole slide learning (S3L) framework for gigapixel-scale self-supervision of WSIs. S3L combines data transformation strategies from transformer-based vision and language modeling into a single unified framework to generate paired views for self-supervision. S3L leverages the inherent regional heterogeneity, histologic feature variability, and information redundancy within WSIs to learn high-quality whole-slide representations. We benchmark S3L visual representations on two diagnostic tasks for two biomedical microscopy modalities. S3L significantly outperforms WSI baselines for cancer diagnosis and genetic mutation prediction. Additionally, S3L achieves good performance using both in-domain and out-of-distribution patch encoders, demonstrating good flexibility and generalizability.

Can I use video bookmarks to pause/play a video in PowerPoint?

I have a single video that I would like to use as a "click-thru demo". I would like to embed the video into PowerPoint and start playing it, then pause at a specific spot, then click to start playing from a different spot and then pause it again at a different spot in the video.

I think the bookmark function in videos is the way to go but I am struggling to figure out how to do it. I see a lot of other things the bookmarks in videos will do but I seem to be missing how to just start, pause, jump, play.

The only way I can figure-out to accomplish this is by pasting the video into a slide, trimming it and then pasting the next-sequence into the next-slide and trimming it differently, etc, etc. I have about 25 sequences to play...it would be great just to set bookmarks in the video where I want to start playing, where I want to pause, then jump to the next spot to play, etc. 

Help is appreciated. Thanks,
