slide number / number of slides (e.g. 4/6)

Discussion in 'Microsoft Powerpoint' started by Richard Dobis, May 1, 2006.

  1. Hi all,

    I need a gurus help. I want to show on my slides not only the slide number
    (e.g. 4) but also the total number of slides the presentation has (e.g. 6).
    The info "pages: 24/26" makes people really happy (but not as happy as
    pages: 25/26)

    I know how to add to slide the actual slide number. I do it in the master
    slide by entering <#>.
    I know how to add static text e.g. number of pages.

    well, I can put something like <#>/26 to the master slide, but when I add a
    slide to the show the master slide must be changed too. I want something
    more bullet proven.

    Any hint?

    thanks
