    Mailing One Slide

    Thanks! Great info. Here's the problem: I have a PowerPoint 2000 presentation open. Maybe 50 slides or so. I just want to mail one slide. Besides deleting all the slides I don't want, or creating a presentation with the one slide I want, is there a way to e-mail one slide from the presentation?
    Thanks

    I'm assuming you're concerned about file size. Why not save as HTML?

    Then I can't think of a way to do it without a PPT file.

    Think I've got it, if you're using Microsoft Outlook 2000 (SR1)at least.

    1. Open New Message|Insert Object|Insert Powerpoint Slide.
    2. In Powerpoint 2000, open the presentation. Click Edit|Copy, select the slide you want to send from the Outline view.
    3. Return to Outlook click Edit|Paste Special. If you select Show as Icon, the Powerpoint icon, with the word "slide" will appear in your email. If you do not, actual slide is inserted, if you are in RTF format at least. (Didn't check with other formats.)

    Selecting it as an icon probably makes more sense.

    I get to keep the ribbon?

    Definitely!
    I never thought to look there, although in my Outlook variant the process would be Actions,New Mail Message Using, Microsoft Office, Microsoft PowerPoint Slide
    It took a little juggling for me to repeat - probably I was just [img]/w3timages/icons/doh.gif[/img]. What's weird in my scenario, is that all of the sudden I'm working a weird merged version of PPT and Outlook.

    Re: Mailing One Slide

    This is an old question and seems to be answered but I had to add an idea . . . I do this alot and just put PowerPoint in slide sorter view, select and right click the slide I want and copy, go to my note and paste. They can right click and open if they actually need it in PowerPoint to edit. I usually use it when I have a big presentation almost done but need to get final approval on just one slide.

    This is a slight variation on Mark and Mindy's answers (nan noo, nan noo?)

    <UL><LI>Create the outgoing mail and minimise to task bar.
    <LI>With PowerPoint in Slide Sorter view, drag the slide to the taskbar icon. This forces the email message open.
    <LI>Drop slide on the opened email.[/list]This always inserts the actual slide i.e. you do not get the option of inserting an icon.
