Learn PowerPoint 2011 for Mac: Presenter View

Created: Tuesday, May 17, 2011, posted by Geetesh Bajaj at 1:30 am

PowerPoint 2011 has several views for editing and viewing presentations, and Presenter View is one of them. This view has been completely overhauled in PowerPoint 2011 — Presenter View no longer requires two displays. This is great since you can test this view without working on a dual display environment (such as a laptop-projector combo workspace). Of course, the actual reason for Presenter View’s existence is still for two displays, and you can continue using it that way.

  • In the presenter viewI use to be able to see the 'next slide' in the right hand side. This has disappeared and I have no idea how to get it back. Any ideas?

  • Andrew, I do see the Next Slide as shown in the screen-shot in the linked article above – what do you see in its place?

  • Geetesh, the spot where the 'next slide' was is now blank. Nothing in its place. Such a bad thing to happen.

  • Andrew, a friend suggested moving the mouse cursor to the bottom of the screen to see the slide preview thumbnails.

  • This happened to me too when I upgraded from a Macbook to a new Macbook Pro. The next slide feature is completely missing; all that is in its place is black space. Yes, I can move the cursor to the bottom to see all the slides, but that serves a different purpose than being able to glance at the screen without touching the cursor and immediately know what slide is coming next. This is an absolutely critical part of presenter view, and I miss the way it looked on the old Macbook very much.
