I want to be able to do:

  • View two slides from same PowerPoint presentation simultaneously
  • Edit these slides

My current workflow is to just make the far left "Slides" pane large enough I can see the content for the non-active slide and then jump back and forth as needed. This is somewhat annoying, though, because small text is not readable as you can only make this pane so large.

It would be great to not have to do this, but rather be able to more easily edit/view them simultaneously.

I'm trying to do something similar - specifically, these slides are meant to be used to make a booklet of some kind... Any success with this? –  Michael Merchant Jul 2 at 20:47

There is a "View" tab, and then there is a "New Window" button. Just click it and place the two windows side by side.
