Using Presentation Tools
Presentation View has several icons that are useful during your presentation,
as described in the following sections.
Using the Laser Pointer
The Laser Pointer feature displays a bright red dot on the screen, which
you can move around by moving the mouse. It’s not quite as good as using a
real laser pointer, but if you don’t happen to have one, the PowerPoint laser
pointer will do. Figure 6-4 shows the laser pointer in action.

Figure 6-4: Using the laser pointer.
You can activate the laser pointer in two ways:
The first is to click the Pen and Laser Pointer button in Presenter View
(shown in the margin) and then choose Laser Pointer. Then, use your
mouse to move the laser pointer around on the slide.
The second way to activate the laser pointer is to hold down the Ctrl key,
then click and hold the left mouse button and move the mouse. The laser
pointer will appear on the screen and move as you move the mouse.
When you release the left mouse button, the laser pointer disappears.
Scribbling on Your Slides
You can doodle on your slides to draw your audience’s attention to a
particular part of the slide. For example, Figure 6-5 shows a slide on which I’ve drawn
two circles to indicate the parts of the Psalm 46 that show Shakespeare’s name.
