Default View and edit 2 slides side by side

Sorry if this has already been asked.



I'd like to be able to drag images off one slide onto the next slide to speed up my work flow.

Currently I am having to copy, paste, then move each image to the correct position.

I vaguely remember from years back that you could view the slides in a continuous stream top to bottom - seeing more slides in a column as you zoom out.
Now if I zoom out I just get the current slide smaller with more grey area around it.

(NB View>New Window allows me to see 2 slides and edit but I cannot drag from one to the other)

Grateful for any help
Thanks

You can view several presentations using Arrange All BUT ...

Only one will be 'Active' at any time so you cannot drag from one to the other.

Thank you, yes, I realised that - that's why I'm asking if there is an alternative way of viewing 2 slides at once within the same editing area.

Clicking and dragging an image from one slide to another directly to it's correct position is much faster than
Clicking the image, copying, going to next slide, pasting, then dragging to correct position.

There are several images to drag so the amount of time wasted is really frustrating!
