Grid View in Google Slides
If you have ever wanted to see a grid of your slides and be able to reorganize them, now you can. Grid view comes to Google Slides
Toggle Bottom Left
By default, Google Slides is in filmstrip view. You can see the filmstrip of slides on the left hand side. In the bottom left notice the two icons. One for filmstrip view and one for grid view. Grid view looks like a rectangle made up of 6 squares.
In Grid view, you can rearrange the slides by dragging. Select an individual slide and use the toolbar to change the slide background or change the layout.
Grid view is a great place to set slide transitions if you use them. (Tip: use animations and transitions sparingly to never.) Selecting “Transition” from the toolbar, a side panel appears allowing you to set or change the transition. Click on another slide in the grid to easily adjust the transition.
Add a Comment
Grid view gives you an overview of all the slides. As you notice that a slide needs adjustments, click the comment icon in the toolbar. This switches you back to Filmstrip view to leave a comment on the whole slide. This is new. Previously you could leave a comment on an individual element of the slide but not the whole slide itself. Toggle back to Grid view and notice the comment indicator underneath the slide. A comment count appears for each slide with comments. The comment counts also appear to the left of the slides in the filmstrip when in Filmstrip view.
