Part 10. Fine-Tuning a Presentation > Adding Action Buttons

Adding Action Buttons

In Normal view, click the slide to which you want to assign an action button.

Open the Slide Show menu and choose Action Buttons.

Click an action button in the submenu that appears.

Click on the slide where you want to insert the action button.

INTRODUCTION

You can add action buttons to your slides that allow you to move back and forth to other slides during the presentation. For example, if you want to refer back to an important chart on the first slide in the presentation, you can add action buttons to other slides that allow you to jump back to the first slide whenever you need to.


TIP

Action Button Ideas

You can use action buttons in a variety of ways. For example, if your presentation is self-viewing, you can insert Next Slide and Previous Slide buttons that take the user back or forward a slide as the user reads at his or her own pace.


The Action Settings dialog box opens. Click the Hyperlink to option button.

Click the drop-down arrow and select the slide you want to jump to.

Click OK.

PowerPoint adds the action button to the slide. When you view the show, you can click the button to activate the link.
