[ISO/IEC 29500-1 1st Edition] custShow (Custom Show)

This element specifies a custom show that defines a specific slide sequence that the slides are displayed in. This allows for many variants of the same set of slides to be presented.

[Example: Consider the following custom show using three slides.

<p:custShow name="Custom Show 1" id="0">
    <p:sld r:id="rId5"/>
    <p:sld r:id="rId2"/>
    <p:sld r:id="rId4"/>

Notice here that the custom show specifies a show, or presentation, where slide 5 is shown first, then slide 2 and finally slide 4. end example]
