Notes are like an adjunct attachment to your slides. They don’t appear on the
slides themselves but are displayed separately. Each slide in your
presentation has its own page of notes.
Notes are usually hidden at the bottom of the screen in a tiny Notes pane
that’s just large enough to display a line or two of text. You can recognize
the Notes pane because it initially contains the words “Click to add notes.”
To work with notes, you should first enlarge the Notes pane to give yourself
some room to work. For more information, see the section “Adding Notes to a
Slide,” later in this chapter.
PowerPoint also has a separate view designed for working with notes pages,
called (you guessed it) Notes Page View. To call up Notes Page View, choose
the View tab on the Ribbon and then click the Notes Page button found in the
Presentation Views group (this button is shown in the margin). Each Notes
Page consists of a reduced version of the slide and an area for notes, as
shown in Figure 5-1.
Depending on the size of your monitor, these notes are too small to see or
work with in Notes Page View unless you increase the zoom setting. But on
smaller monitors, you can zoom in to see your work.
Figure 5-1: Notes Page View lets you see your notes.
