Presenter ‘09 offers an Outline tab that you can include in your player’s sidebar navigation menu—and the cool thing is, you can customize the navigation titles in that outline to be whatever you want. Though the outline tab defaults to displaying the slide titles you entered for your PowerPoint slides, you can easily change them, and it won’t affect the original titles on your slides at all.

Here’s how to do it:

  1. From the Articulate menu, select Slide Properties.
  2. Click in the Navigation Title column for any slide whose title you want to alter.
  3. Enter or edit to your heart's content.
  4. Click OK when you're done.

Any new navigation title you enter for the slide will show up in your sidebar next time you publish. The original title on the slide itself will be preserved.
