Powerpoint and an external display

I would like to project a powerpoint presentation on a mac that has a dual-display capability. I can get the presentation to display on another screen, however I don't know how to cycle through the notes or outline view on my mac. In other words, is there a way to rotate through a presentation and notes with the focus on only one monitor?

Not sure what you mean. If youre displaying a PPT presentation on a monitor, the same keys and all will apply for cycling through the slides.

Right...they same keys apply. Let me try again. When I cycle through the slides with the keyboard or mouse, the notes on the 'main' monitor don't rotate to keep up with them. After a few slides, what's seen on the external montor (where the mouse is) is ahead of the notes on my screen, and the only way I know to 'sync' them is to move the mouse back to the main monitor, catch the notes/outline up, and then move the mouse back over to the external screen to rotate the slides. Is there away around this?

Not unless there are separate keyboard commands for cycling slides and notes. I'd check your menus for such a command.
