Do you reach for the mouse to move from placeholder to placeholder on a slide?  Instead, use the Ctrl + Enter keyboard shortcut. 

It will not only jump to the next placeholder, it will create a new slide with the same layout as the current one when you reach the last slide in the presentation.

Two quick ways to add new slides:

  • Ctrl + M to add a slide after the selected one


  • Hit the Enter key after clicking beneath a slide thumbnail  in the Navigation Pane
