Reading View in PowerPoint Online

Learn about the Reading View in PowerPoint Online.


Product/Version: PowerPoint Online

OS: Windows and Mac OS X

Note: The Reading view feature has been deprecated in PowerPoint Online.

Reading view is the default view in PowerPoint Online. It is similar to the Slide Show view in some ways because, in both views, the slide is shown in full-screen mode. However, in Reading view, you also see the PowerPoint Title Bar and the Status Bar at the top and bottom of the interface respectively, as you can see in Figure 1.

Reading view helps in quick navigation through slides. Also, Reading view is great for presentation designers who want to quickly look at their slides in full screen mode and also be in sync with other applications running at the same time.

To access Reading view, select the View tab on the Ribbon, and click the Reading View button (highlighted in red within Figure 2).

Alternatively, you can also access Reading view from the View buttons on the right side of the Status Bar, just click the third button (highlighted in red within Figure 3).

If you want to edit the presentation, or to run Slide Show, you can always switch from Reading view to one of the other views using the view buttons that you can see towards right on the Status Bar.

Feature List 01 (Layout with Tabs)

The Feature List Layout comprises three sample PowerPoint presentations: one each to create a visual list for 4 features, 5 features, and 6 features. These work great when you have too much information to fit within one slide. This solution lets you use multiple slides, but the visual result is still that of one single slide!
