Join Mike Rankin for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the slug area for notes, part of Creating a PDF Presentation.
…If you want to print out your slides for your audience or for your own reference,…it can be very handy to have an area next to each slide for notes.…So lets see how you can create a place for notes using the slug area feature.…Remember that when we first created our…presentation document we included a large slug area.…300 pixels wide over here on the right hand side.…This is where our notes will go.…The first thing I want to do now is to add two new layers…to the file.…A layer for presenter notes and a layer for audience notes.…
So I'll go to the Layers panel, and I'll Option or Alt…click the New Layer button, and I'll call this one presenter notes.…And do the same, for Audience Notes, and I'll…drag them to the top of the layer stack.…Now I'll go to my navigation master page, which is…the one that all my other master pages are based on,…and add a text frame on both new layers. So go to end now.…First, I'll do the audience notes.…With that layer targeted, I'll press T to get my type…tool and drag out a large text frame filling this slug area.…
