In the PowerPoint slider sorter view, is there a way to set the zoom level larger than 100%? On PowerPoint for Mac this slider goes to much higher values, essentially allowing zoom all the way in to a single slide, but on the Windows version (depending on screen resolution and slide dimensions) the maximum zoom is often several slides wide.

Evidently it's possible to achieve a similar affect by changing the page size, but is there some sort of preferences hack that will change the maximum value of this slider?


While in Slide Sorter View, vba will not let that get past 100, but in Office 2010, the slider control at the bottom right slider control will allow you to go to 200%

  • Sean, could you expand your answer to explain to the OP how they can use this command in Powerpoint. – Paul Nov 12 '12 at 23:48

  • Good to know. I assume like many other corporations we have not yet upgraded to Office 2010. I was hoping for a hack where I could edit some obscure settings file and change the maximum value of that slider. – Adam Wuerl Nov 15 '12 at 5:06
