The PERRLA Add-in does not work with Microsoft Powerpoint. However, you can can create references using PERRLA in Word, then copy and paste the references into your Powerpoint presentation.
- Create a new paper in Word with the PERRLA Add-in
Click here to learn how. You can create either a Research Paper or Discussion Post - both work.
- Add references to your paper using the References & Citations panel in the PERRLA tab
Click here to learn how to create or add references to your paper.
- Once you've built your reference section, you can click & drag to highlight the references or reference section
- Copy the selection
- Go to the spot where you want the references in your Powerpoint presentation
- Paste the references into Powerpoint
The pasted text will maintain correct italics, but it will adopt the styling of the text area where you paste it. You can further edit the text as needed.
If you have trouble pasting the text into Powerpoint like you want, you can try using the Paste Special command. You can access Paste Special in the Home ribbon tab under the Paste option on the far left.
