Reviewing Presentations


Lesson 2 
Before presenting  your PowerPoint presentation, you might decide to ask someone else to look over it. The two of you might even collaborate on a presentation. If you were revising a hard copy of a report, you might add comments in the margins or compare your rough and final drafts side by side. You can also do these things in PowerPoint using the Comments and Comparefeatures. 
In this lesson, you'll learn how to add Comments and Compare two versions of a presentation.

Comparing Presentations

If you are collaborating on a presentation, or even just asking someone else to review your presentation, you might want to use the Compare feature. The Compare feature combines two versions of the same presentation. This allows you to see all the differences between the two and decide which changes to include in the final version of your presentation.

To Compare Two Presentations:

  1. Select the Review tab and locate the Compare group.
  2. Click Compare. A dialog box will open.

  5. Review the interactive below to learn how to review comments and changes using the Compare feature.

Using the Reviewing Features Safely

If there are any comments in your presentation, you should remove them before sharing the final version with anyone you are not collaborating with. Comments can reveal confidential information that could lead to embarrassment or make you or your company appear unprofessional.
It's a good idea to double-check your presentation using the Document Inspector. The Document Inspector can tell you if there are any comments or other hidden data in your presentation that you may need to remove.

To Use the Document Inspector:

  1. Save your presentation.
