Cloning templates and importing slides from existing presentations

Why reinvent the wheel? There are 3 ways to re-use slides:

  1. Clone a template. Go to the TEMPLATES menu, select one of the template presentations and hit CLONE.
  2. Import entire presentations. Go to the IMPORT menu, select a presentation (this can be a template as well) and hit LOAD.
  3. Search and import specific slides. Go to the STORY view. Select SEARCH SLIDES. Enter a keyword (or select an image) in the search bar and pick the slides you want to use.

Sharing presentations

There are 3 ways to share your presentation:

  1. PDF: select the menu option and the file will be emailed to you
  2. PowerPoint: hit the button in the main menu and the PPTX file will be emailed to you
  3. View-only link: click the SHARE menu. Recipients can view, but not edit, your presentation, and will continue to see modified versions as you continue to make changes. The link expires after 30 days.
  4. Editable link via the SHARE menu. Recipients can clone the presentation to their own SlideMagic account. After the presentation is cloned, edits you make to the original presentation will not be reflected anymore in the cloned presentation (and vice versa). The link expires in 30 days.
