PowerPoint 2016 -how to electronically mark groups of slides to be used by 2 presenters

Hi Experts,

We have one PowerPoint 2016 .pptx file.

We are going to share the presentation between 2 presenters - using one PC and one projector.

Is there a simple way to electronically mark the groups of slides to be used by each presenter?

I have Acrobat and can export slides to Word 2016.

Regards,
Leigh

It depends what the purpose of "electronically mark" actually is. Do you mean they will present on stage together and hence need to know which slides belong to each presenter? Slides can be "electronically marked" by naming them or by adding meta tags via programming. But neither of these will be visible as they are by nature "electronic marks". You could use Custom Slide Shows to build two separate slide shows, each with their own subset of slides by clicking Slide Show / Custom Slide Show / Custom Shows... / New but I'm not sure this is what you want.

If the purpose is just to identify the slides for easy editing, I would use sections. You can add sections in the slides group on the Home tab, or you can add them by right-clicking any slide thumbnail in the slides pane and choosing add section.

Thanks, Echo_S,

I have experimented with Sections, but I couldn't find any way to print the whole presentation showing the Sections?

Choose file, print and then look in the dropdowns on the print dialog. If you have sections in the file, those sections will show up at the bottom of I think it's the second drop down where you choose which slides to print. And then you can opt to print sections.

Echo is right (don't forget to award her the points and close this question). But how annoying is it that this part of the UI doesn't allow multi-selection. I tried all the usual key modifiers and it seems that you can only select one section at a time. It does what you need, but not efficiently.
