Add, change, or delete a comment in a presentation

A comment is a note that you can attach to a letter or word on a slide, or to an entire slide. Use comments when you want people to review and provide feedback on a presentation that you created, or when colleagues ask for your feedback on a presentation.

In Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007, you can add, edit, and delete comments. To see existing comments, you can Move between review comments.
