OS: Mac OS X






Even though the Outline view is new for PowerPoint 2016 for Mac, it's not absolutely new since you always had access to your presentation's text outline through the Slides/Outline Pane on the left side of the PowerPoint interface. What's changed though is that you no longer need to switch tabs within the Pane, as you would do in PowerPoint 2011. Now you just access the outline within a new view! The Outline view displays all the text contained within the title and text placeholders of your slides.

Here's a walkthrough of Outline view:

  1. First open a presentation which has at least a few slides populated with text. Then access the View tab of the Ribbon and click the Outline View button, as shown highlighted in red within Figure 1.
  2. Outline button within Presentation Views group

  3. This opens the Outline Pane on the left side of PowerPoint 2016 for Mac interface (highlighted in red within Figure 2, below). Note that this replaces the Slides Pane that shows up in Normal view. As you can see in Figure 2, below, the Outline Pane displays a list of the slide titles and text placeholders in an outline format. You can resize the Outline Pane to occupy a larger part of the onscreen area.

  6. Scroll bar within Outline Pane
