Most people create presentations at the very last minute and making the slides can be an extremely time-consuming and frustrating process. Using keyboard shortcuts (also nicknamed ‘quick-keys’) can improve your efficacy when creating a presentation.
Control + C is how you copy your selected text. Control + V is how you paste that text.
- Control Z is used to undo an action.
- Control + F5 puts the presentation in present mode and it will start on the first slide.
- Shift + F5 is used to present the presentation and it will begin on whichever slide you selected.
- Control + Shift + > is used to increase font size and Control + Shift + < is used to decrease font size.
When you use these simple shortcuts, it can make a huge difference in your productivity. These quick-keys are drastically more efficient and faster than using a mouse. Not everybody will be able to use all of these keyboard shortcuts immediately or will even find a use for all of them. You should attempt to learn a few shortcuts in order to boost workflow. Putting one or two quick-keys on a sticky note and remembering to use them on a regular basis for a week is a great way to test out and memorize them.
For Mac substitute the Command key for the Control key.
