INTRODUCTION

After merging review files from your collaborators, you can review the suggested changes and decide which ones to keep and which ones to ignore. If two or more people reviewed the presentation, each reviewer's changes are color-coded on the slides.

TIP

TIP

Hiding Markers

TIP

Toolbar Shortcuts

You can use the Apply and Unapply buttons on the Reviewing toolbar to apply or ignore reviewer changes in your slides. Use the Next Item and Previous Item buttons to move back and forth between changes.
