    PowerPoint Notes Page

    Is it possible to use Word as the editing tool on the Notes Page of PowerPoint, rather than the PowerPoint Notes Body Area? Is there a way to insert a Word object on the Notes Master Page so that Word (and its more powerful styles) is used to create speaker's notes instead of being limted to the indention levels in PPT?

    Test Forum posts expire and are removed VERY quickly. I'm going to move your post to the Powerpoint forum where posts do not expire.

    No, not really.
    You can write the notes text in Word, then copy and paste into the Notes area. But a lot of formatting will be lost, because the Notes editor in PowerPoint lacks a lot of the features of Word (no styles, for example), and those that are available don't translate well - for example although both Word and PowerPoint support bullets and numbering, they aren't transferred when you copy text from Word into the Notes area.
