The Zoom feature allows thecreation of interactive links to a section summary, a section zoom, or aslide zoom. It is a quick way to insert links, essentially to moveefficiently from one part of the presentation to another reallyquickly:

  1. Open a presentation or create a new one (we will usethe Zoom.pptx presentation for this example), asillustrated in the following screenshot:
  2. Create sections through the presentation, where necessary.
  3. Go to InsertLinksZoom.

  1. Let’s investigate the SummaryZoom option. For this feature to work, you will need to selectthe beginning slide for each of the sections you created, and then clickon the Insert icon at the bottom ofthe dialog box to create the Summary Zoom slide with section links, asillustrated in the following screenshot:

The Summary section slide iscreated with linked thumbnails to the first slide of each section.The Section Zoom option inserts a linkto a section or sections on a thumbnail that, when presenting, will zoomto the corresponding section. The Slide Zoom option is very similar to the Easy linking option. Simply choose slides toinsert as thumbnails with links onto an existing slide. When presenting,you simply click on the thumbnail to advance to that slide in thepresentation.
