Modifying Outline Menu Levels

In the previous lesson you learned how to rename slide titles using Slide Properties. 


Another handy skill is customizing the slide levels. For example, you can group related topics by arranging them based on their hierarchical relationships. This type of visual grouping helps learners quickly see how each topic is related to its subtopics.


In this lesson, you'll learn to modify slide levels to visually group topics and subtopics.


If you're following along, I'm working in Lesson Files > Chapter_02 > Menu_Levels.pptx.


  1. Open Slide Properties
  2. Modify Slide 2's level from Level 1 to Level 2 by clicking in the Level column and selecting 2 from the menu
  3. Click OK
  4. Publish your course to view your updates.

What's next?

We've looked at some great ways to customize the playback and Outline menu in our courses. In the next chapter, you'll work with adding and removing animations.

Actually, "what's next" here is Adding and Removing Animations, right?

Yes...that's what's next in the TOC at top right of page. I guess the "What's Next" content and link needs to be adjusted.

Hi Abhi,

I'm not sure what you're asking...or if I have the expertise to answer. But here are a couple links, and if they're not what you're looking for, be sure to reply and someone else will jump in to help, I'm sure.

This link describes how to add a logo:

Here a community member says he's editing his image to add some white space.

Perhaps that's what you want to know how to do? Maybe if you tell us what image editing program you're using, someone can respond.
