Views in PowerPoint 365 for Mac

Learn about various views that allow you to edit and show slides in PowerPoint 365 for Mac. Do you use all these views?


Product/Version: PowerPoint 365 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 365 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 365 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 365 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 three small buttons towards the right side of the Status Bar (highlighted in red within Figure 2).

Pictures in Presentations

Is a picture is worth a thousand words? You probably have heard this adage so often that we decided not to repeat this phrase throughout this book! Now here’s some more info: the human brain uses a larger part of its area to store visual information rather than textual content. And that’s possibly because a picture describes so much more than text.
