PowerPoint 2003: Adding & Editing Slides in Outline View

Outline view is easy to access – it’s the tab right next to Slides in the Slide Pane on the left side of your window. In Outline view, you can see every slide in your presentation, the slide title and the major bullet points in an outlined format. This format makes adding slides to your presentation incredibly easy.

And, if you choose to save your presentation as a Web page, the text on the Outline tab converts to a table of contents for navigating.
