When the number of slides becomes unmanageable, you can group them. By expanding and collapsing groups, you can view subsets of the slides instead of all slides at once. Groups also provide a useful overview for the project, and they provide a convenient way of deleting or hiding multiple slides at once (for example, slides that you don’t want to publish).

To help associate slides with their group, you can mark grouped slides with the same border color. The color is not displayed when the project is run.

Create a slide group

  1. In an open project, click a slide that you want to group, and use Control-click or Shift-click to select the other slides for the group.

  2. Right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac OS) and select Group > Create.

The selected slides are grouped into a single group slide with their numbers and descriptions displayed on it.

Name slide groups and mark them

  1. Click the group slide in the Filmstrip.

  2. In the Property Inspector, type a name for the slide group in the Title text box. This title appears at the bottom of the grouped slide.

  3. From the Color palette, select a color for the border of all the slides in the group. This color is not displayed when the project is run.

Expand or collapse a slide group

Right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac OS) the group slide and select Group > Expand or Group > Collapse.

Note:

A faster way is to click the arrow icon on top of the group slide.

Ungroup slides

Right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Mac OS) the group slide and select Group > Remove.
