I am wanting to create a text hyperlink from one slide to
another slide ,and after viewing the second slide I want
PowerPoint to return back to the slide with the text
hyperlink. I have selected the text that I want as the
hyperlink on the first slide ,chosen 'Insert'-
 'Hyperlink' ,then the 'Insert Hyperlink' dialog box
opens. The text I have selected appears in the 'Text to
display' field. I then clicked 'Place in this
Document'button which then shows a list of slides in the
presentation, I selected the slide I wanted to link to but
then the 'Show and return' checkbox is greyed out and will
not accept a tick.,  thanks

When you go back, you should insert a blank slide before the one you want to go
back to, set it up with zero timings and link back to it. Microsoft brings you
back to a point after all the events on the slide are completed.

Ah. I believe the "show and return" is for separate presentations, not
for linking to slides within the same presentation.

Glyn, "Show and Return" is applicable to links to Custom Shows.  It doesn't
sound as if you are linking to a Custom Show.  Am I correct?  When linking
to a single slide in the current document I'm afraid that you have to
provide your own return navigation.  However, there is nothing that says
that a Custom Show can't have a single slide.

>thanks to everyone for your help, my problem has been

sorted by creating a Custom Show for each individual
linked slide and the 'show and return' works a treat,
thanks again !!
