Objective 3. Copy and Paste as a Hyperlink into a PowerPoint Slide

Activity 5.3. Copying and Pasting a Hyperlink into PowerPoint

You can also add content to PowerPoint slides using Copy and Paste. If you use the option to Paste as Hyperlink, a link is inserted to the document instead of the actual content.

You can use the Open dialog box in Office applications to select and copy a file without leaving your document.


On the File menu, click Open. In the folder that contains your project files, right-click the file Benefits_Seminars, click Copy, and then click Cancel.


In the Slides tab, select slide 3. You want to add the link to this slide. Click in the text area near the center of the slide.


On the Edit menu, click Paste as Hyperlink. A link is added to the slide for the Benefits Seminars file.


Right-click on the hyperlink, and then click Edit Hyperlink. The Edit Hyperlink dialog box opens.

In the Text to Display box, triple-click to select the text. Type Seminars and then click OK.


Click on the border of the text box and move it to the middle of the slide. Compare your screen with Figure 5.5.

Figure 5.5.


On the Slide Show menu, click View Show. Click to advance to slide 2 and then to slide 3.


On slide 3, click the link for Seminars. The Benefits Seminars file was saved as a Web page and opens in a browser window.

You might link to a document like this on a company intranet. Documents do not have to be in a Web format to use a hyperlink in PowerPoint.


Click the Close button on the browser window to return to the PowerPoint slides, and then view the rest of the slides.


Save your file, and then Close the file. Close the Word file New_Employees_List_Firstname_Lastname.


This integration project is now complete.
