Configuring how total number of slides is displayed on slides (ex. 1 of 10)
PowerPoint allows me to insert slide numbers. I'd like to be able to have it worded as "2 (of 12)", "3 (of 12)", etc.
- # of #
- slide # of #
Ability to not show count on hidden slides.
the person above me is false(they have to say I'm telling the truth)
I would like that there could be a number page of THE SECTION, that is, not "page 1 of (total of pages)" .. but "page 1 of (total pages of the current section)" . That will be very useful to organize the headnote of every slide.
OH YES PLEASE ! IF IT CAN BE DONE IN WORD, WHY NOT ON POWERPOINT?

Allowing for the total to be ALL total slides, or total of ONLY visible slides could be useful in some cases as well. I can only think of the scenario right now that I'd want the total number of visible slides. Thank you!
Why cannot like Excel ?!
How is this not already a feature?

this is easy and should be done
Total number of slides must be auto-generated. This is fundamental in my opinion.
Adding my vote - 1 of 10 would be perfect
Adding my vote - would really like to be able to have the format 1 of 10 in the slide numbers please
Yes! Please automate total number of slides!
Or something like:
- <#> -> for the current slide number;
- <##> -> for the total count.
Then just compose the footer the way you want it. For instance:
Slide <#> of <##>

in support of this feature to be built
Incredible how non homogenous PowerPoint is with respect to other MS office programs. When we will have the same approach for headers and footers everywhere?

This feature is absolutely needed, and I don't think it is difficult to implement. After all, this has already been a feature in MS Word for many years.
it would be very valuable to have this as we use Powerpoint as a quick way of making presentable documents when a Word doc is too formal or slow to create. It is already possible in Word (and Excel) to automatically include page # of ## in the footer. So would expect Powerpoint to work the same.
Guys, I now it's not ideal,
but, fow now,
we can go to FILE > INFO >
we'll see the total slides and hidden slides count there. 😃
PLEASE Microsoft implement the original poster suggestion. It'd be very useful and aprecitated by us.

It's on EVERY other MS Office product....
