    Default Powerpoint table of contents

    anyone know how to create a table of contents in powerpoint that DOES NOT require manually copying and pasting each slide name? Seems there used to be a "Summary Slide" choice in earlier versions of PPT, but not in 2007/2010. any tips would be a big help at this stage.

    Look like they removed that feature... What happened to the Summary Slide and table of contents options? - PowerPoint - Office.com
    Along with the ability to transfer outlines between PPT and Word. Both big losses IMO.

    Hi Denis,

    > "ability to transfer outlines between PPT and Word"

    it is not gone ... just hard to find

    convert PowerPoint to Word Outline:
    File > Save & Send > Create Handouts

    Thanks Crystal

    I wonder why some features got buried so effectively...

    Hi there,
    There are also softwares (actually PowerPoint add-ins) allowing you to create automatic tables of contents designed for your company.
    Mine just installed the UpSlide software that does that, among other things. If you have a little bit of time, give it a look.

    Hi,

    You cannot automatically create summaries / table of contents with a number of tools. I use the Power-user add-in for instance. It takes the title of each slide in your selection, and add them to a table of content slide. Also, it adds a link on each of these titles pointing to the respective slide, which can be nice when you are in slide show mode.

    Cheers

    Product plugs (the UpSlide and Power-user posts above) are generally discouraged in forums like this, although sometimes the answer to a Microsoft Office question is indeed a third party product. These "solutions" are incomplete, however, because they propose a single software product when there are in fact several that can do the job with widely varying levels of quality. Here is a more complete list of products offering agenda (table of contents) automation: Macabacus (us, obviously), think-cell, SlideProof, Efficient Elements, UpSlide, and (apparently) Power-user. There are probably at least half a dozen more that aren't worth mentioning.
