Key issues with sending or saving slides in PowerPoint 

Saving or sending slides can be a painful process in PowerPoint. For instance, to send just 1 slide from an open presentation, you need to:

  1. Save a copy of your current presentation, under a new name
  2. From this copy, remove all the slides you don't want to send
  3. Save this copy
  4. Close this copy
  5. Create an email
  6. Attach the copy
  7. Send
  8. Delete the copy
  9. Reopen the initial file you were working on to resume your work

That's a LOT of steps! 

Another typical painpoint is for renaming a presentation. If you are working on a presentation and want to rename it, you have to close it first, which is something that can be quite annoying.
