SEE ALSO  For information about working with notes, see ”Add notes to slides” in Chapter 9, “Review presentations.”


■ ■ Notes Page view  This is the only view in which you can create speaker notes that contain elements other than text. Although you can add speaker notes in the Notes pane in Normal view, you must be in Notes Page view to add graphics, tables, diagrams, or charts to your notes. ■ ■ Outline view  This view displays a text outline of the presentation in the Outline pane and the active slide in the Slide pane. You can enter text either directly on the slide or in the outline.

SEE ALSO  For information about working with outlines, see ”Enter text on slides” in Chapter 4, “Enter and edit text on slides.”

■ ■ Reading view  In this view, which is ideal for previewing the presentation, each slide fills the screen. You can click buttons on the navigation bar to move through or jump to specific slides.

In Reading view, the navigation bar and View Shortcuts toolbar are at the right end of the status bar

■ ■ Slide Show view  This view displays the presentation as a full-screen slide show, beginning with the current slide. It displays only the slides and not the presenter tools. ■ ■ Slide Sorter view  This view displays thumbnails of all the slides in the presenta- tion. In this view, you manage the slides, rather than the slide content. You can easily reorganize the slides, group them into sections, and apply transitions to one or multiple slides. You can also apply transitions from one slide to another, and specify how long each slide should remain on the screen. SEE ALSO  For information about changing the order of slides, see “Rearrange slides and sections” in Chapter 3, “Create and manage slides.” For information about applying transitions, see ”Add and manage slide transitions” in Chapter 8, “Add sound and movement to slides.”
