Comments can be added to text and tables in Presentations.
Add a Comment
With your presentation open, select some text, a cell or a table. If you want to comment on a chart, select text associated with the chart in order to add a comment. Then right click to select the Add Comment icon.
This will open the Comments panel to the right, where you can enter your text in the New Comment field.
Working in collaboration with your team, you can reply, edit, move and resolve comments in Presentations. The owner of a Presentation can also delete comments.
To manage comments:
- Hover over a comment in the Comments panel.
- Click the drop-down arrow on the far right.
- Select the appropriate option from the drop-down menu.
- Resolve, delete or move the comment as desired.
To edit a comment, hover over the comment text until the pencil icon appears, then double-click to edit. To reply to a comment, click in the Reply field and enter your text. Then choose the Post button.
Comments can be filtered in a number of ways. Click on the blue Filter icon in the Comment panel and select how you want to filter your comment. Use the slider at the top of the Comment panel to Show my @mentions only.
You can also filter by Status, Updated, Author and Content. Status includes both Open and Resolved comments. Disconnected comments are grouped with Resolved comments. The Updated options allow you to pinpoint an exact time period using the calendar feature. Filters can be applied and cleared as needed.
Navigate Among Comments
When comments have been added to a Presentation, the comments will be noted in the gray comment icon next to the slide title in the presentation outline panel.
Open the Comments panel to the right to see all comments in the presentation. To move through the comments in a slide, use the Move Up and Move Down arrows at the top of the Comments panel. To see the slide location for a comment, click the blue Jump to Location icon.
The blue highlights on the Presentation slides themselves indicate the presence of one or more comments for text, table cells and tables.
