When people have to include slides from another presentation in PowerPoint, they often copy and paste the slides from one presentation to another and then have great problems with the formatting.
If you are using Office 2007, Office 2010 or Office 2013, to bring in slides from another presentation, click on the slide that you want the slides to be added after. On the Home tab, in the Slides group, click on the New Slide dropdown and click Reuse Slides. The Reuse Slides task pane will be seen at the right of the window. Click Browse – Browse File and locate the presentation containing the slides you want to use. The slides from the presentation will be shown in the task pane. At the bottom of the pane you will see a check box Keep source formatting. If you want to keep the format of the slides as they were in the original presentation, check this box; if you want the formatting of the slides to look like the presentation you are currently working in, leave it unchecked. To bring a slide into the presentation, click on it and it will be input into the presentation.
In PowerPoint 2003 or earlier,
- Click on the slide that you want the slides to be added after.
- Click Insert – Slides from Files.
- Click Browse and navigate to the presentation you want to insert.
- Select the presentation and click Open.
- Under Select slides, click on the slides you want to insert. Click Insert. The inserted slides will adopt the design of the presentation into which they are inserted.
