Create notes while working on a presentation

  1. In the notes pane (notes pane: The pane in normal view in which you type notes that you want to accompany a slide. You print these notes as notes pages or have them display when you save a presentation as a Web page.), type your notes for the current slide.
  2. To navigate between slides as you add your notes to the notes pane, click the slide thumbnails on the Slides tab or click the icons on the Outline tab.

 Note   If your text exceeds the size of the placeholder (placeholders: Boxes with dotted or hatch-marked borders that are part of most slide layouts. These boxes hold title and body text or objects such as charts, tables, and pictures.) on the notes page (notes pages: Printed pages that display author notes beneath the slide that the notes accompany.), Microsoft PowerPoint reduces the font size and line spacing incrementally as you type, to make the text fit.
