Thanks for the tip Meldun. Do you know how may I insert a comment during the presentation, appearing the comment as I put the mouse pointer over an object of the same slide?

Beforehand, thank you very much!


Hey Cristobal!

Hmm to do this you would require 2 Monitors, or Monitor and a Projector, etc.

You would then set your PowerPoint to show the presentation on the secondary monitor. i.e the projector.

After youve done that when you launch the presentation, it will be shown on the projector but on the primary screen, the PowerPoint program will still be available to you. Allowing you to still be able add comments to any slide you choose.
