Nonlinear powerpoint

  1. Mar 25, 2004 #1
    Hi all,
    Is there a way to have "hotspots" in a powerpoint/openoffice presentation document? I'm making a presentation and there are several areas where people might ask questions about a specific point and I would like to start a new line of slides, and then go back to where it branched off after I've finished explaining the point. Thanks for your help

    Yes this is possible.

    For Openoffice:

    Insert-> Hyperlink-> Document

    Then under "target in document", click on the icon next to the white field. It will give you a list of all your slides. Once you pick one, just click apply.

    It should be similar in MS Office.
