    Pointer/Arrow

    Is there any way to set the Arrow to a default of always on instead of having to go through the whole right click/selection menu(s) every time you open up a PPT for viewing?

    Interesting question; in PPT 2007 Pointer and Arrow refer to the same thing. What are you getting as a default?

    Pointer explanation

    Yes, thanks, I used both names because someone might be familiar with one and not the other. Problem is this - when I open up a PPT set to teach a class, I must go thru the menu to get the pointer to stay visible for the duration of the class. Else it seems to disappear, sometimes between slides.

    Since I always use the pointer, I would like to set Power Point to keep the pointer always visible when I open up the program without going through the menus.

    If the pointer disappears between slides, I have to shake the mouse to get it to reappear.

    This situation was the same in Office/Power Point 2003 as it is in 2007.

    Auto hide is the default and there's no way to change this. We have a freeAddIn that enables this or for a quick solution try Ctrl A as the show starts.
