Split body text between two slides

To make your presentation more appealing to your audience, include only as much text on each slide as is necessary. When you have more body text on a single slide than you want, you can split the text between two slides.

Note: This procedure applies only to body text. If it doesn't work for the text you want to split, cut (CTRL+X) the text from one slide and paste (CTRL+V) it onto another slide.

To split body text between two slides, do the following:

  1. On the View tab, click Outline View.

  2. Position the cursor where you want to split the text (for example, at the end of a paragraph), and then press ENTER.
