- The presentation has been divided into 3 files for easier downloading and portability on disk. To combine them into one file without changing text and graphics, you must import into a blank template and then overlay "Capsules" template on them.
- User needs to go to "notes view" to read/print notes. It is best to click on the notes text boxes to read notes and references, because some slides have text that runs over onto new pages which you will not see if you do not click on the text box. Notes that exceed 1 page will not print out in PowerPoint. You can order the printed notes from GBPSR as we have imported them into a Word file.
- In order to read the notes on-line you need to go to "Edit" and then "Edit Slide" mode and then "View Notes page."
