PowerPoint - Insert a presentation into another

  Gary 23:43 22 May 2004

I am preparing for a presentation at which several people will speak. In the initial PowerPoint which I have prepared, I have my introductory slides and then title slides for each speaker who follows.

Each presenter has prepared their own PowerPoint Presentation and I want to insert these into mine after the title slide so that they will flow seamlessly on the day. However, this is presenting problems.

Because each PowerPoint uses a different style (background, font styles, etc), I have a problem when I copy the slides from the original files and paste them into my presentation -- because the formatting of the copied slides gets changes so that it's the same as my presentation (i.e. the one that I'm copying into). So, the background and fonts all change so that they're the same as mine.

Can anyone tell me if it's possible to string the presentations together either by copying and retaining the formatting or using some other means?

How about hyperlinking to the other presentations on the relevant introductory slides. This way they will each retain their own format, but will play seamlessly and return to the original presentation (and slide) when they finish.

That sounds like the sort of thing I want to do -- can you please tell me how?!

On your slide which introduces the next person, at the end of the slide add another bullet point or start of a line (whatever follows your own formating), at that point, instead of adding text, right click and selct 'hyperlink', a standard style windows box will open, from there browse to the other presentation and double clik to insert the hyperlink to it.

When you play your presentation, at the relevent point just click on the hyperlink and it will launch the other presentation.

Also, if you don't like the idea of the large hyperlink, just chage the font size to the smallest available (8?), this will just give a neat looking link.
