I appreciate allstat is not a discussion list, but this posting misunderstands entirely my previous advice.

Slides and notes are separate. It's well known that slides should contain few words (<35 according to Reynolds "Presentation of data in science") and be legible (!#) and vivid presentations contain images rather than words. Some presenters can memorize their script, others extemporize around each slide, but some tend to waffle and forget points. Slide shows that are put on the web may be unintelligible without some contextual notes accompanying the slide.
I mentioned that searching the Help for "presenter view" brings up a description, but searching for "views" does not. That reads, "PowerPoint has four main views: Normal view, Slide Sorter view, Notes Page view, and Slide Show view" - evidence of lack of joined-up thinking or plain indifference by the software writers.
