Can someone tell me how can I add page numbers to my Google Drive Presentation?

I've read that it should be under "Insert" but there's nothing even remotely relevant there. Here’s a screenshot:

  • Works for Docs, not Presentations. I'm not seeing any of those options.

    As of now, Google Slides does support master slide functionality, however page numbers are still not included in the newest release.

Unfortunately page numbers in Presentations hasn't been implemented yet.

We don't currently support master slide functionality, so you'll need to insert numbers and logos manually.


Its likely that i will be in the future - but no idea when.

Someone on another forum suggested a workaround by using the features built into Adobe Acrobat to add the page numbers (Open the document in acrobat, open the tools menu, goto Pages > Header and Footer > Add Footer/Header)


This feature was added to Google Slides in December 2014. See this help page for instructions on how to add numbers to slides.
