Reuse Slides and Shapes

PPT Productivity PowerPoint add-in has 100+ time saving features. The Slide Library lets you easily save and reuse your favorite shapes and slides. You can also download 2000+ free objects including flags, maps, common frameworks and more.

Save presentation to Slide Library

Created a great slide deck and want to save all slides from the presentation to your Slide Library for easy reuse? Rather than saving slides individually, use the import capability to bulk import all slides/shapes from a presentation.

Open the presentation you want to import. From the Slide Library toolbar "Actions..." menu, click "Save current presentation as a new gallery..."

The Gallery name will by default be the name of the presentation, or the title of the first slide if the presentation has not been saved (you can change the Gallery name at any point by editing the relevant Gallery folder name in C:\Users\Public\Documents\PPT Productivity).

You will be prompted for a name and thumbnail to represent each slide. By default, the name will prepopulate with text from the slide in the following order: Any text in the Notes field, any text found in the slide Title, any text found in a shape on the slide (in the order added to the slide).

Next, select whether to save as Shapes or as a Slide, and select the preferred thumbnail from the options displayed. Repeat for each slide.

Productivity Tip

To bulk import all slides using prepopulated text and default thumbnail type, tick "Bulk import remaining" option. This will bulk save all Shapes/ Slides without a prompt. This works best if you first nominate a slide/ shape name in the presenter notes of each slide, or (if that is missing) the slide title. If a slide is found without any text to use as a name, it will pause and prompt you to enter a name before continuing the bulk import.
