Notes Page view is one of nine views available in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac. This view shows you how your printed notes pages will appear. First of all, the Notes page shows the speaker notes that you add to the Notes pane for each slide. In all, then these speaker notes are visible in three distinct places within PowerPoint, depending upon the view you choose:

  1. Within the Notes Page view that we discuss on this page. You see the notes while printing slides.
  2. Within the Notes pane in Normal view. You see the notes while editing slides.
  3. Within the Notes area of Presenter view. You see the notes while presenting slides.

The Notes Page view enables viewing your speaker notes in a page view as shown in Figure 1. Each slide created contains its own Notes Page. You can print these pages out to use as a reference while delivering the presentation. These notes do not show on the screen during Slide Show.

To access the Notes Page view (without having to print them), select the View tab on the Ribbon, and click the Notes Page button (highlighted in red within Figure 2). This brings up the Notes Page view, that you have already seen in Figure 1, above.

Here is a description of the various elements within Notes Page view, as marked in Figure 1:

A. Slide Preview on Notes Page

The large box on the top half of the page is a single slide that shows the same slide that you see in Normal view.

B. Notes Area on Notes Page

The box located on the bottom half of the page is the Notes area, that contains the same notes that are available within the Notes pane of Normal view. You can also add notes and edit them here; changes made here show within the Notes pane of Normal view, and vice versa. Additionally, you can also format the text content here. Select the text that you want to format and right-click or Ctrl+click to bring up the contextual menu, as shown in Figure 3, below.

Tip: Typing your speaker notes within Notes Page view or Normal view is a good way of including reminders about topics that you want to talk about while delivering a presentation.
