Add an up-down slider to an element in PowerPoint
September 11, 2020 9:31 AM   Subscribe

I've been asked to make a mock-up of a new internal work website in PowerPoint, and one of the needed elements is a table that is too long to fit on one slide. Is there a way that I can add a slider to this element so that the reviewer can get a better idea of how this particular page will look?

I realize that there are other and better ways to make a website mockup, but this is a quick solution and in this particular case it's actually proving really effective.

When you say slider, do you mean like a scrollbar? Would it scroll just the table, or the whole page?

Here's a workaround for how to add a portrait-oriented slide to a regular landscape-oriented presentation. It's fiddly but it may work for your purposes.

Scrollbar, that's the word I'm looking for. It would be just the table, not the entire slide. I'll fiddle with your workaround, thanks!

Pro tools for pro outcomes: Balsamiq

Came here to suggest Balsamiq, it's extremely easy to use - I'm very much not a designer and I just used it to whip up wireframes for a job interview exercise and I got the job. It's also fairly limited which is how it remains usable, but for people who need a real wireframing tool, it's extremely good.
