Here’s a question I received today: In my deck of slides, I need to have slide numbers 1 to 8 for the first section of slides. I then need the next section to be numbered 1 to 6 for another section. Is this doable?

The short answer is that this is not doable, at least not so at the time of writing this post. Hopefully, this feature will be added in a future release.

The long answer is that there is a workaround for those who want this feature at all costs. Remember, this is a workaround, and not a solution! Follow these steps to understand better:

  1. First of all, make a backup copy of your existing PowerPoint presentation.
  2. You can do this task by first saving all changes in your existing presentation (keyboard shortcut: Ctrl + S on Windows, and + S on Mac)
  3. Next, choose the Save as command (keyboard shortcut: F12 on Windows, and + Shift + S on Mac)
  4. Now split your presentation into multiple presentations.
  5. You can do this by deleting the slides no longer needed in individual presentations. Then save as a file with a new name.
  6. Remember that we already saved a backup copy of your presentation, just in case we delete any content unintentionally.
  7. Add individual slide numbers, as needed to these individual presentations.
  8. We created two presentations, of three slides each, and added slide numbers to both of them, as can be seen in Figure 1, below.
