Every presentation typically contains an outline, in other words, an outline is all the text contained within the title and text placeholders of your slides. A few versions ago, PowerPoint had an Outline view, and don't fret because all that functionality is not lost!

This Outline pane, highlighted in red in Figure 1 is the other tab within the Slides / Outline Pane, the Outline pane displays a list of the slide titles and text placeholders in an outline format.
