Advanced editing

For the majority of the time you will probably only need to do basic editing, for example, removing sections at the beginning and end of your recording. Sometimes, however, you may wish to do more advanced editing, such as combining two recordings together, adding new slides into a recording or embedding a YouTube video.

Edit or delete a slide

Click on the ‘Slides’ option on the left of the screen.

Editing - Slides option

To edit or delete a slide hover next to the slide you wish to change and slide on the three vertical dots.

Delete slide

Click on the dustbin symbol to remove the slide from the presentation. This will only remove the slide, it won’t remove the audio or video.

Editing a slide will allow you to change the title that appears in the Table of Contents, the time the slide appears and keywords for searching.

Add a slide

To add a new slide or slides, click ‘Add a presentation’ at the top of the list of slides.

Editing - add a presentation

Browse to find the PowerPoint file to upload. The presentation will take a few seconds to upload and will appear at the bottom of the list of slides. If the 'Processing' message appears for longer than you would expect, try refreshing your browser a few times. Sometimes the process is actually complete but this does not show on the screen.

Click on the timeline where you’d like to add the slide, then move your mouse over the slide you want to bring in and click the plus sign.
