Pretty much the title. I don't like the way that a single scroll wheel 'notch' moves an entire slide. I would rather scroll continuously between slides if possible.

Maybe I'm wrong and it would be more annoying that way, but I'd like to try it if I can.

When you select any slide from the left pane (slide previews), you can use your mouse wheel to scroll between your slides. – Mehper C. Palavuzlar Nov 8 '12 at 7:17
Yes, I realise that, but each discrete movement of the scroll wheel moves an entire slide. I would like each movement to just move me slightly downwards, as if I were scrolling through multiple pages of a document. – Cam Jackson Nov 8 '12 at 7:26

I think I understand what you want; if it's just for viewing, you could convert the presentation to PDF and get a continuous scroll effect by changing your Reader settings.

View | Page Display | Enable Scrolling

Unfortunately, there's no way to do this in PowerPoint.

Yeah, that's probably the best solution. – Cam Jackson Nov 12 '12 at 10:44
Great idea! Thanks! – Yavor Kirov Jun 16 '15 at 9:10

Continuous scroll works in Slide sorter view. Just zoom in slides as much as you want.
