When you use PowerPoint 2013 to deliver your presentation, you can circle, underline, draw arrows, or make other marks on the slides to emphasize a point or show connections.
Tip If you prefer to use keyboard shortcuts, instead of your mouse, when delivering your presentation, see the article Keyboard shortcuts for use while delivering a presentation in PowerPoint.

- On the Slide Show tab, in the Start Slide Show group, click From Beginning to start your presentation from the beginning.
- Right-click the slide that you want to write on, point to Pointer Options, and then click a pen or highlighter option.

- Click Eraser, and then hold down the left mouse button and drag the eraser over what you want to erase.
- Click Erase All Ink on Slide to erase everything you’ve written or drawn on the slide.
- To turn off the pen or highlighter, resume the pointer, and continue advancing through your presentation, right-click the slide, point to Pointer Options, and then click Arrow. Click to advance to the next slide.
