Adding Notes


The Notes Pane

PowerPoint Online's tri-paned interface has three regions: the Slides Pane, the Slide Area, and the Notes Pane. The Notes Pane is placed right below the Slide Area, as shown highlighted in red within Figure 1. The Notes Pane provides space to add speaker's notes that can be so helpful to the presenter while presenting. You can also write any sort of information about the presentation or individual slide.

By default, the Notes Pane may be completely empty, with some boilerplate text such as "Click to add notes", as shown in Figure 1.

To add your notes in this area, you click your cursor on the boilerplate text and start typing. We explain this concept in more detail within the next section, Adding Notes.

What's important to realize is that each slide in your presentation has its own notes. When you navigate to another slide, you will have to add more notes relevant to the active slide.

The Notes Pane can be seen in Editing view. Follow these steps to add the text within the Notes Pane:

  2. Slide selected
