Google Presentations: What did I tell you?

Less than a year ago, I predicted that Google would come up with a PowerPoint-like tool. They did it. And you know what? It is pretty good.

Downes had this to say about it:

What I’d really like is a slide library I can simply draw from to create presentations. But you can’t even drag and drop slides inside presentations.

To this, I reply:

  • You can’t drag and drop slides within your presentation, but you can move them in the slide desk using buttons to achieve the same result.
  • You can’t drag and drop slides from one presentation to another, but you can copy a slide in a presentation and copy it in another.
