Adding a new Slide

Once you have types in the slide title pressing Enter will create a new slide if you want to add bullet points to that slide you must demote the paragraph first.

Adding a new Bullet Point

To add a new paragraph to a slide by using the outline that appears in the Outline pane. Move the cursor to the end of the paragraph and press Enter.
A new paragraph will be created at the same level as the preceding paragraph. If the slide only has a title then this will create a new slide.

If you position the cursor at the beginning of a paragraph and press Enter, the new paragraph is inserted to the left of the cursor position.

Place the cursor anywhere in a slide's body and press (Ctrl + Enter).

This method creates a new slide immediately following the current slide.
The position of the cursor within the existing slide doesn't matter; the new slide is always created after the current slide. (The cursor must be in the slide's body text, however in order for this method to work.

If you put the cursor in a slide title and press (Ctrl + Enter), the cursor jumps to the slide's body text without creating a new slide.

If you press Enter at the end of any slide in Outline view you can promote back to the Slide Title level where a new slide will be created.
