Have you ever wondered how you might be able to easily capture the important ideas that are generated during a presentation? Or perhaps your presentation has a slide with a detailed graph and you would like to point out each section clearly as you speak to the audience without standing directly in front of the screen? There is a neat function within PowerPoint’s presentation mode which enables you to add notes, highlight sections, and use a laser pointer. These annotations can be removed immediately or saved for future reference. Watch the short Lynda.com video “Adding annotations during presentations” to find out how to access this function during your next presentation.
