Bookmarks in Powerpoint
Posted on 2014-09-02
I would like to mimic the Bookmark feature of MS Word in MS Powerpoint as much as possible.
The reason I need this is to enhance re-usability of my presentation for my colleagues: I want them to easily replace a few statements (bookmarked by me previously) in the presentation and create their own customized one.
What I hope to achieve is:
1. Have a start page, hidden with a list of Bookmarks: for example City, State, Country.
2. Whenever I need to use City, State or Country name within the presentation, I create a link to the specific item in the start page (for example 'City') Just like the bookmark usage in MS Word
3. I complete and save my presentation and distribute to my colleagues. Any colleague may modify just the first page entries and have all necessary data updated by doing that in their own customized presentation.
As you might have guessed, it works like a replace function to improve re-usability. Neither I or the user will worry about old data forgotten to be replaced.
Please guide me with the simplest approach? I do realize scripting is a solution but I'd prefer an easier one if it exists. For example, does 'Link to Content' method works?
Thank you in advance
