Did you select some text in the Notes Pane of PowerPoint, and change the font? Or perhaps the font size? Or you added a bulleted list? The problem is that nothing except the bulleted list shows up! All you see is plain text, as you can see in Figure 1, below. Why? Is it not possible to see formatting in the Notes Pane? The solution is easy, but not obvious.

To see the text formatting, you need to click the Show Text Formatting button, that used to be on PowerPoint’s Outlining toolbar. When PowerPoint 2007 was launched with the new Ribbon and Tabs interface, Microsoft quietly provided no interface to most of these options, including promoting and demoting outline levels and the Show Text Formatting option. They still existed, but you had to bring them back from the land of the dead! How do you do so? Follow these steps to learn more:

  1. Right-click anywhere on the Ribbon or your Quick Access Toolbar, and choose the Customize Quick Access Toolbar… option, as shown in Figure 2.Right-click on Quick Access Toolbar
