    View WYSIWYG text for speaker's notes? (XP SP-2)

    Hi,

    When I input text under a slide it all appears in Arial.
    When I apply formatting, I cannot see it visually, yet when I print the formatting appears!

    If I remember, I didn't have this problem under PPoint2k, but the XP version seems to have this.

    Any clues?

    Thanks,

    m.q.

    Only a wild guess here as I don't have XP, but this is the same in PowerPoint 2000 until you have the Show Formatting button selected. Mine is on the Standard toolbar. Looks like an A/A (a plain letter A slash Italic Underlined letted A)

    Regards

    The text portion of the Notes page in PowerPoint XP is definately WYSIWYG. I'm not sure why your program is not working correctly. But, then again, maybe it is. Please clarify the description of what you are seeing.

    If, while in the Notes Page view, the fonts do not appear as formatted, then there is a problem. Try updating video drivers.

    If, while in Normal view, the fonts do not appear as formatted in the notes area, click the Show Formatting button on the Standard toolbar. If that doesn't work then there's a problem.

    Problem solved by switching to "Notes Page" view.
