What happened to the Summary Slide and table of contents options?

The ability to create a summary slide and a table of contents slide in your presentation is not available in Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 and PowerPoint 2007. Instead, to create your own summary or table of contents slide by copying slide titles onto a new slide, do the following:

  1. On the Home tab, in the Slides group, click the arrow under New Slide, and then click a slide layout that contains a large body text placeholder (such as Title and Content, Two Content, Comparison, or Content with Caption).

    Note   If you add a Blank slide layout, you must then add a text box. To do this, on the Insert tab, in the Text group, click Text Box, and then drag to draw a large text box on the new slide.

  2. In the pane that contains the Outline and Slides tabs, click Slides.

  3. For each slide that you want to add to the summary or table of contents, copy the title in the title placeholder, and then paste it onto the new slide in the order in which the slide appears in your presentation.
