    Color Notes (XP)

    PowerPoint lets me Format/Font and change the color of text in the note area to another color but it does not display in that color. I would figure if this was unavailable, the menu option would be grayed out. I do have a color printer. Any ideas? It's not a big deal, just a minor annoyance.

    Re: Color Notes (XP)

    I've figured out at least part of it, quite by accident, after wondering about this for weeks. While it does not display in color in a normal display, it does display in color in print preview. Strange, and not very helpful for what I wanted.

    Check View | Color/Grayscale - if this is not set to Color, the on-screen display will be in black and white.

    It's set correctly, the rest of the slide shows in color. Since it prints correctly, it's more of a minor annoyance and curiosity rather than a big deal.

    Strange - the notes show up in color in normal display on my PC (with a color inkjet as default printer). Perhaps someone else will have a suggestion.

    Re: Color Notes (XP)

    I get the same behaviour.

    If I set the View to Notes Page then I see the notes font formatting, but in Normal View the text always appears in black, and in the same size font.

    Clicking on the Show Formatting toolbar button causes the Font Size to be shown correctly, but I still don't see the Font Color in Normal View.

    Sorry, my mistake. In Notes view I get color, but in the notes area in Normal view, I only get black and white. I apologize for the confusion.
