Therefore, with the purpose of helping users save time and focus on more important procedures, ActivePresenter provides a considerable number of simple methods to add or remove slides. This article will help you to get a better idea of how to use them. If you have not installed ActivePresenter yet, download it here for free.

Inserting New slides

In ActivePresenter, there are six ways to perform this task:

Inserting a Blank Slide In an Existing Project

When you need to add some objects such as text, images, shapes or video clips, you have to create a blank slide first.

To insert a blank slide, take one of the following ways:

  • In the Home (1) tab, click Blank Slide (2).


  • Or click Blank Slide (4) from the Slide tab (3).



  • Or right-click in the Slide Pane and select New Blank Slide (5).

Inserting and Removing Slides

If there are any existing slides, the new one is inserted right after them. You can switch to them manually.

Inserting Images as Slides

ActivePresenter allows you to import images from Library or a hard drive folder to a current project as new slide backgrounds. Just take one of the next steps below:

  • In the Home tab, point to Slides From (6), and click From Images (7).

Insert slide from images

  • Or click Images Slides (8) in the Slide tab.

Slides form images

The following steps are similar to open a new Image project.

Inserting Slides from a PowerPoint Presentation

If you already have a PowerPoint presentation, you can use ActivePresenter to convert it into an interactive eLearning course.

Two ways to add slides from a PowerPoint presentation are as follows:

  • Click From PowerPoint (9) in the Slides From drop-down list.

Slide from powerpoint

Or click PowerPoint Slides (10) from the Slide tab.


The next steps are the same as when opening a new PowerPoint project.

Inserting a Random Slide

In general, a random slide in ActivePresenter is a random question in other tools.

To insert a random slide, you just click Random Slide (11) in the Slide tab.


After that, the inserted slide pool is automatically linked to the first slide pool in the project.

Inserting New Slides by Fresh Capturing

This option is suitable for the case that you have a created project and need to record a few more slides.

Then, you can choose one of two options below to do this task:

  • In the Home tab, click Capture Slides (12).


  • Or click Capture Slides (13) in the Slide tab


Copying Slides from Another Project

If you are creating a new blank project, and want to copy some slides from an existing one, this method is right for you.

Step 1: Open the project created before while launching a new one.

Step 2: Select desired slides from the previously created project, and press CTRL+C.

You can also copy multiple slides by pressing Ctrl/Shift while clicking slides.

Step 3: Switch to the new project, click the slide you want your copied slides to follow and then press CTRL+V.

Deleting Slides

If there is any unwanted slide, just delete it:

  • Right-click it, and choose Delete from the pop-up menu.
  • Or select it, and press the Delete key on the keyboard.
