A summary slide uses all the titles in your presentation. That is, all the 
titles in placeholders, not if you draw a textbox yourself and type a title 
in it.
To get a summary slide go to Slide sorter view, select all the slides you 
want to make a summary of and click on the button summary slide which should 
be on the slide sorter toolbar, 3rd button from the left.

Per PowerPoint help:

Add a summary slide to your presentation   

If you want to include a summary of the key points in your Microsoft 
PowerPoint presentation, you can use Slide Sorter view to easily create a 
single slide that presents a list of selected slide titles.

On the View menu, click Slide Sorter. 
In Slide Sorter view, hold down CTRL while you click the slides that have 
titles that you want to include in your summary slide. 
Tip  Include only the slide titles that best summarize your presentation.

On the Slide Sorter toolbar (toolbar: A bar with buttons and options that 
you use to carry out commands. To display a toolbar, press ALT and then 
SHIFT+F10.), click Summary Slide  .
If the Slide Sorter toolbar is hidden, on the View menu, click Toolbars, and 
then click Slide Sorter.

The summary slide is created and added to your presentation.

1.Powerpoint summary slide icon is grayed out when slides selected

I'm adding summary slides to a series of presentations. It's behaving in a 
quirky manner. Sometimes I select all of the slides, select the icon, and I 
get my summary. But often, it remains grayed out , and will only become 
functional for certain slides. I can't find a common thread in the slides 
that are causing it to gray out. Help!

3.Summary Slide button in Slide Sorter view?

I try to make a summary slide, but the button is not activated, why is this? 
I select slide sorter view, click on the slides I want to include in my 
selection, and then I am supposed to click on the summary slide button, but 
it's not active?

5.Changing Summary Slide will change orininal slides????


If I create a summary slide from a couples of other slides, I usually end up 
changing titles later on. Is there a way that if I change a title on my 
summary slide, the title on my orininal slide changes as well (instead of the 
other way around)? Or, if I change the order in my summary slide (eg, 
introduction, conclusion, recommandation -> introduction, recommandation, 
conclusion), that the linked(?) orininal slides order changes as well?

That would be very helpful to me.

Thanks if anyone knows the solution to this.

Kind regards,
