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 in the reference section
Be sure to include the "References" heading along with the references to make this easy.
- Copy the selection
You can use the keyboard shortcuts (Cmd + C, Ctrl + C) or the menu options.
- Go to Powerpoint and view the slide where you want to paste the references
- Paste the references into Powerpoint
You can use the keyboard shortcuts (Cmd + V, Ctrl + V) or the menu options. If you don't have an element selected in Powerpoint when pasting, we will create a new text box with the references. The references will keep the proper italicization, but they will change their font to match the default style in Powerpoint.
Once the references are pasted into Powerpoint, you can adjust the text box, font styling, or placement as you need for your presentation.
If you have trouble pasting the text into Powerpoint as 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. To keep the references exactly the same, you can use the Embed option under Paste.
