What is the benefit of opening the presentation in
If you start viewing the outline alone, you can concentrate
on building the text for the presentation. This can be
particularly helpful when you need a clean slate on which to
organize your thoughts. The graphics of a slide can distract
you from your outline because you may start thinking about
the slide design.
Can I save annotations if I disable
the Prompt to keep ink annotations
when exiting option?
No. You can only save annotations by
using the dialog box that prompts you
to save them at the end of the slide
show presentation. The prompt does not
appear if you disable this option.
