when creating a slide for Powerpoint from a map, the size of the slide does not contend the whole mape (the slide frame is too small) - how can I change the size of the slideframe or fit a complete map into one slide?

Unfortunately there is easy way around this as you can't resize the slide frame relative to the map (or map branch) or vice versa. Furthermore not only will the subtopics outside the slide frame not appear in the slide in MM, they won't be exported either.

You can however move the slide window around to include different portions of the map or branch - and you can also create more than one slide for the same topic. So what you can do is create a series of slides based on the same main topic and move the slide window between each "take".

This technique is particularly useful if you are planning to export the map to Powerpoint. For example if a main topic has 12 subtopics, too many to fit oto one slide, you could create three slides for the same main topic, "framing" different groups of four subtopics each. When the slides are exported you could leave the slides as is or edit them within PowerPoint to consolidate the subtopics onto one slide.
