16.1. Triple View

PowerPoint presentations are made up of slides, a holdover term from the days of 35 mm film transparencies. (PowerPoint still has a setting for 35mm slides, but nowadays most people use a video projector to display their presentations.) PowerPoint's three-pane Normal view lets you concentrate on one slide at a time. The largest pane displays everything that's on the current frame—apart from animations and other special effects, it shows you exactly what your audience will see (see Figure 16-1). The pane on the left gives you an overview of the entire presentation in outline format. The third pane, below the slide, lets you enter speaker notes that you can refer to while you're talking. Although the slide area is the biggest by default, you can resize the panes by dragging the dividers that separate them. You can also hide the outline and notes panes by clicking on the Slide View icon at the bottom left of the window.
