Hi, Leslie! I have tried to add slide numbers to my powerpoint 13 file. The one time I tried to add them, it deleted the few slide numbers that were in the pptx/ppta. I've gone into the master and I still can't get the slide numbers to appear. When I play the module, there are no slide numbers. I went through the entire player tutorial and there is nothing about slide numbers even though it's in your response. Help!! My people use and need slide numbers and the Articulate frame is keeping Powerpoint from acting normal. I can't imagine that presenter would keep the slide number invisible from my view.

Hi Lisa,

The link Leslie shared was about the slide numbering within the Player menu, but if you need slide numbers on the slides as your learners view them, you can use PowerPoint's slide number placeholder, as it's is supported in Articulate Presenter. For it to work properly in your published course, the slide number placeholder must be placed in the slide master footer. Here's how:

  1. Go to the View tab on the PowerPoint ribbon and click Slide Master.
  2. Go to the Insert tab on the ribbon and click Slide Number.
  3. Mark the Slide number box and click Apply to All.

You'll need to apply that slide master to all your slides for it to display. Hope that helps!
