Using Slide Drawing Tools

To access drawing tools:

Your mouse pointer can act as pen or highlighter to draw attention to items in your slides.

  1. Locate and select the Pen Tools button in the bottom-left corner.
  2. Select Pen or Highlighter based on your preference. You can also choose a different color from the menu.
  • Click and drag the mouse to mark your slides. You can also press Ctrl+P on your keyboard to access the pen tool while presenting your slide show.

You can also use the laser pointer feature to draw attention to certain parts of your slide. Unlike the pen and highlighter, the laser pointer will not leave markings on your slides. To use the laser pointer, select it from Pen Tools, or press and hold the Ctrl key and the left mouse button.
