Microsoft PowerPoint for Windows does not allow more than one notespage to be associated with a particular slide. In some cases, it may bedifficult to fit all necessary text on a single notes page.

PowerPoint 7.0

You can use the PowerPoint Write-Up feature to create unlimited notespages with Word for a particular slide. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. On the Tools menu, click Write-Up.
  2. Choose the desired format of the page.
  3. Start Word and add any additional notes for the slide.

PowerPoint 2.0, 3.0, 4.0, 7.0

You can create an extra dummy slide and use its notes page foradditional text.
  1. In Slide Sorter view, select the slide that requires an additional notes page.
  2. On the Edit menu, click Copy.
  3. On the Edit menu, click Paste to create an identical slide.
  4. In Notes view, move to the second of the two identical slides.
  5. Select the slide image. On the Edit menu, click Cut.
This process can be repeated to create additional pages for the slidesin Notes view.

NOTE: The presenter must advance through these identical slidesduring the presentation; however, this should not be noticed by theaudience provided no transition effects are used between the identicalslides. (PowerPoint 2.0 does not provide transition effects.)
