WHY IN THE NAME OF ALL THAT IS GOOD AND HOLY DOES POWERPOINT ON OS X NOT HAVE A KEYBOARD SHORTCUT FOR CREATING A NEW SLIDE?!?!?!?

Command-N creates a new presentation, which I do SO much more frequently than creating a new slide.

Digging into the help for Powerpoint, I learned that "you can also customize keyboard shortcuts and function keys in Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Word". Thanks! In other words, (1) I can't do what I want to do and (2) the technology exists but isn't implemented for some reason.

don't let it get you, man. A dear woman friend of mine (well, you know, her) says it's just OS X, go eat some ice cream and you'll feel just fine... just fine...

(oh, and: email me your snailmail addy)

I had Herrell's Ice Cream last night and am feeling much better. Thanks for the suggestion. :)

Expect an e-mail shortly.

Was it chocolate orange or "hi-def" vanilla? Because if so I shall be forced to beat you senseless, then put your shirt through a centrifuge for any leftover drips of ice cream.

Jackie says, "Control-M creates a new slide in PowerPoint for Macintosh. Now give me food."

Jackie is a very smart dog. She is correct. (Of course, the menu doesn't tell you that's what the shortcut key is.) >grumble< Bad Microsoft, no biscuit!
