Point with the Arrow While Showing Your PowerPoint 2007 Presentation

What do you want to do with the arrow pointer during a PowerPoint presentation? Most people opt not to show it because it’s a distraction. You can, however, display the arrow pointer and use it to point to important parts of slides. During a discussion of the data in a table, for example, you can point to different numbers and number totals. Follow these instructions to show or hide the arrow:

  • Showing the arrow: Press A or = (the equals sign), click the Pen button and choose Arrow Options→Visible, or right-click and choose Pointer Options→Arrow Options→Visible.

  • Hiding the arrow: Press Ctrl+H or click the Pen button and choose Arrow Options→Hidden.
