Product/Version: PowerPoint 365 for Mac

OS: Mac OS X






PowerPoint 365 for Mac's work area below the Ribbon continues to be tri-paned. These three panes comprise the Slides Pane, the Slide Area, and the Notes Pane. The Slides Pane is the thin strip on the left side of the PowerPoint 365 for Mac interface that contains thumbnails of all your slides, as shown highlighted in red within Figure 1, below.

What Happened to the Outline Pane?

Longtime PowerPoint users will recollect that the Slides Pane used to be twin tabbed in PowerPoint 2011 and older versions. With the Slides Pane in one tab, you could also access the Outline Pane in the other tab. Wonder what happened to the Outline Pane? In PowerPoint 365 for Mac, the Outline is now a separate view called Outline View. We explain further in our Outline View in PowerPoint tutorial.

Within Normal view, the Slide Pane allows you to:

  1. Move slides easily from one position to the other just by dragging and dropping, as shown in Figure 2.
  2. If the presentation has more slides than the length of the pane can display, you'll get a scroll bar to move and navigate up and down, as shown highlighted in red within Figure 2.
  3. Scroll bar for the Slide Pane

  4. You can duplicate slides in the Slides Pane by selecting the slide(s) you want to duplicate, then press the + D keyboard shortcut.

  6. To delete slides in the Slides Pane, select the slide(s) you want to delete, then press the Delete key on your keyboard.

Also, you can select one or more slides within the Slides Pane, and perform basic slide level edits such as copying and pasting slides, rearranging them, etc. Additionally, you can select a slide you need to work with, and then right-click (or Ctrl + click) to bring up the contextual menu you see in Figure 3, below. Many of the options in this right-click menu replicate options already discussed in this article.

Tip: If you need to view more slides at a time and perform slide level edits, you'll want to change the view in PowerPoint to Slide Sorter.
