set manual advance as default?

I'm working on a project to convert almost 50 powerPoint presentations to e-learning.  The slides will be advanced by the user in most cases.  Is ther a way to change  the default from automatic to maunual?  Failing that, is there a quciker way to change the preference than changing each slide one by one by one- which entails three or four keystrokes a slide

Hi Carol  - currently there isn't a way to set the default to Advance By User... however if you want all your slides in a presentation to be Advance By User, you can select the Advance column heading, then right-click, and then change the behavior for all the slides at once. Justin shows how in this screencast:

Hope that helps!
