Working with the Pen and Annotations

A tool called a pen allows you to use a technology that Microsoft calls ink to write on your slides when running your show in Slide Show view. The Pen tool allows you to select different pen types, such as ballpoint, felt tip, and highlighter, and to change the ink color. You can use the pen to write on slides and then use an eraser tool to remove the writing, or use a command to remove all ink markings on a slide. At the end of your presentation you are offered the option of saving all your ink annotations or discarding them.
