create detailed speaker notes, and Slide Show view or Reading view to display your presentation.
Each view has certain tasks that are easier to perform in that particular view.
Outline View
Outline view has a pane that enables you to enter text into your
slides in a familiar outline format. In this view, the Outline pane
replaces the Slides Thumbnail pane. Top-level headings in the
outline are slide titles, and entries at the second level appear as
bullet points. The outline is a great reference if you need to write
a paper to accompany your presentation.
Slide Sorter View
Slide Sorter view is the best view to change the order of slides,
delete slides, or duplicate slides. In Slide Sorter view, you can click
and drag a slide to move it. If you double-click a slide, PowerPoint
changes to Normal view and displays that slide in the Slide pane.
Reading View
You can click Slide Show view ( ) to present your show. Slides appear
one at a time at full screen size. Reading view ( ) is very similar to
Slide Show view, but gives you more navigation flexibility because the
status bar remains at the bottom of the screen. To exit either view,
press
.
Notes Page View
In Notes Page view, you can display each slide and the associated
speaker notes as one full page. You can also type notes on the page
while viewing your slide — this is the most convenient view for typing
presentation notes. From the View tab, click Notes Page to work with
this view.
