It is known that using Microsoft Word can automatically create a table of contents. All you need is to head to the “References” tab and click a button for “Table of Contents”, later it will be finished. It is one of the most trivial things in Microsoft Word. On the other hand, PowerPoint doesn’t give you the option for automatic creation of tables. There is, however, a workaround for a PowerPoint table of contents. There are a couple of ways to insert a table of contents in PowerPoint. Let’s check them out.
There are four methods to create a table of contents and each of the ways for creating a table of contents in PowerPoint has its benefits. Some are easier to make, while some look more streamlined. Here are the guides for each of them.
Dragging slides is the easiest way to create table of contents. All you need is to drag and drop. Then the linking and images are done for you.
The second way is a bit more complicated, but it allows you to change the title.
You can also try using Outline View. This is one of the fastest ways to insert a table of contents in PowerPoint.
Last but not least, the new Slide Zoom feature, the latest feature in PowerPoint 2019 and PowerPoint for Office 365, can be used to create your table of contents.
PowerPoint will use thumbnail images to represent slides. You can change any thumbnail with another image. Select your entire “Zoom”. This will activate the “Zoom Tools Format” tab. Click on “Change Image” and change the image you want.
PowerPoint is a versatile software for presentations, but it also has its limitations. As you can see, creating a PowerPoint table of contents is a complicated task. The good news is you can convert PowerPoint presentations into PDF files, and increase the versatility. So in order to achieve this process, you also need a great PDF editor, i.e. Wondershare PDFelement - PDF Editor. It is very popular with the palette of features. The following are the powerful features:
Launch PDFelement and open the file where you want to add form fields.
Go to “Forms”, and click on “Recognize”. PDFelement will recognize blanks and tables automatically and create fillable fields. The type of form fields will be automatically named according to the text near the form fields.
At this point, PDFelement will automatically also open the “Form Editing” feature. You can move the forms from one point to another within the document. When you wish to fill them, click on “Preview”.
You can also manually create form fields. Go to Form, and click on “Add text field”. Select the location where you want to add the fillable form. You can also select the “Add check box” or “Add radio button” option. Finally, you can click on “Preview” and type directly in the form field.
To extract data, go to “Form”, and click on “Extra Data” button. If you do not have OCR installed, the software will ask you to download and install OCR first. If you have OCR, click “Next”, and then the software will extract data.
You can also go to the “Batch Process” window, and load more PDF forms. Click “Start” and PDFelement will extract all the fields including the data in the fields as one *.csv file.
