Copying a Slide

by Allen Wyatt
(last updated November 14, 2013)

When developing presentations, I often need to copy slides and use them as the basis for new slides I want to create. Google Presentation makes this type of editing rather easy, using techniques with which you are probably already familiar. Follow these steps:

  1. Open the Presentation file you want to edit. You should see, at the left of the screen, a list of the slides in the file.
  2. Select the slide or slides you want to copy. (If you want to select multiple slides, click on the first one and then hold down the Shift key as you use the arrow keys to select the others.)
  3. Press Ctrl+C. This copies the slides to the Clipboard.
  4. Select the slide after which you want to paste the copied slides.
  5. Press Ctrl+V. This pastes the copied slides after the slide you selected in step 4.
