The devil is in the details. Slides not only have to be perfect individually, but they also must be consistent with one another. The deck as such needs to be clearly perceived as a whole. You need to pay attention to this in particular when a project has repeated slides, slides with similar content that requires similar structures to be used. And don’t forget to make sure there is no jumping from slide to slide, everything is perfectly aligned, and the that the positions of titles, subtitles, footers, legends and trackers are consistent.

What does it mean if you got this tag as feedback from an admin?

There are slight differences between the slides – ex.: trackers, legends, headings, pages numbers, spacing between shapes, etc.

Font sizes vary too much from one slide to the next
