Does anyone know how to turn off the numbering for slides that are hidden. I have many slides that are currently hidden. I have a numbering field in my master slides to number each slide. When I hide a slide I would expect the numbering to continue for only the visible slides but it does not. For example if slides 2, 4, and 6 are hidden slides and I have 5 slides showing i would expect the slide number in slide view to show 1,2,3,4,5. Instead, what I see is 1,3,5,7,8.

Thanks,

Kirk

      Kirk,

      unfortunately I see no possibility in PowerPoint to turn off the numbering

      of hidden slides automatically. Two possibilities:

      - Add a text shape with the correct number on each non-hidden slide manually

      - Move all hidden slides to the end of your presentation.

      Kind regards,

      Ute

    • I sent you (off list) a modified page numbering add-in that will allow for

      hidden slides not to be numbered.

      Important Note:

      The 'Page' number will not reflect the actual slide number.
