What if there comes a need to revise particular copy in each slide, and adding remarks to someone’s deck is the only way to track specific elements?
PowerPoint is more than just a software for creating presentations.
Not only does it allow you to create a visually-appealing deck, but it also lets you pinpoint what needs to be improved and removed to deliver an error-free presentation.
Are you still worrying about how you can give comments without messing up the slide itself? PowerPoint can address your concerns and reduce your workload without missing a spot.
Presenting… PowerPoint’s Comments Feature!
With PowerPoint’s Comments function, you can insert feedback into certain slide objects, allowing you to add, modify, and delete text or visual elements, while giving comments and suggestions to specific objects.
This limits the use of text boxes and shapes, where you can also type in your observations. This method, however, makes it harder for you to adjust and place your remarks on specific slide texts or objects without getting in the way.
Comments enable users to point out unnecessary words or information that can negatively affect your presentation’s overall message.
So before presenting in front of a crowd and delivering your message with informative copy and visuals, make sure to check if:
- Each point supports the presentation’s main idea to provide a more comprehensive message.
- There are filler words you can eliminate to convey a more direct and concise approach.
- Every word or statement is free from any issues regarding punctuation, spelling, or verb tenses.
- The sentence structure and organization of ideas promote consistency for a smoother presentation flow.
Refine your deck by identifying all the details that can either make or break an otherwise effective presentation.
Here’s an infographic to give you an overview on what to look out for when adding comments and recommendations to specific slide texts with less hassle.
