Views in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac

Learn about various views that allow you to edit and show slides in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac.


Product/Version: PowerPoint 2016 for Mac

OS: Mac OS X

View your same slides in different PowerPoint views, and you will see them from another angle. This approach makes sense because viewing slides in Slide Show view gives an entirely different perspective than editing them in Normal view. Further, it's easier to reorder and work with multiple slides in Slide Sorter view, and make changes to individual slides in Normal view. All put together, PowerPoint 2016 for Mac provides you with nine different views. Seven of these views can be accessed from the View tab of the Ribbon, as shown in Figure 1. All views are explained in more detail in separate, linked pages.

Views accessible from the View tab of the Ribbon within PowerPoint 2016 for Mac are:

  1. Normal view
  2. Outline view
  3. Slide Sorter view
  4. Notes Page view
  5. Slide Master view
  6. Handout Master view
  7. Notes Master view

We also explore two other views which are accessible from other tabs of the Ribbon, or elsewhere within the Mac PowerPoint 2016 interface:

  1. Slide Show view
  2. Presenter view

Other than the View tab of the Ribbon, you can also access most of these views by clicking the four small buttons towards the right side of the Status Bar (highlighted in red within Figure 2).
