How do I use Powerpoint 2007 Ink Annotate on Presenter View Slides without advancing slides during the show?

I'm using PowerPoint 2007 on a TabletPC to make presentations.  I'm using a dual monitor configuration so that I can show the Presenter View on my TabletPC while showing the full slides on an external projector.  This works just fine.

BUT, I'd like to be able to annotate slides during the presentation using Ink.  This means that I have to draw on the slide in the PRESENTER view on my tabletPC.  I am able to draw on the slide (represented at 1/4 size or so in the upper left hand corner of presenter view) using Ink BUT when I click on the slide with the pen it ADVANCES to the next slide on the projector.

This seems like a bug to me.  Logically, you should be able to ink on the slide while using the PEN and then manually advance the slide using the arrow tool or by pressing the spacebar..

Is clicking with the pen the same as clicking the mouse?  If so it will always advance the slide unless you uncheck the Advance on Click in the Slide Transition and add manual navigation buttons.

Suggested solution did not work.  So I eventually found the solution myself.  This was especially frustrating since when I Googled this question, the top hit was Experts Exchange saying you folks had the answer to this specific question, but I'd have to pay and register to get the answer.   So I joined.  I cut and pasted the exact question from the Experts Exchange ad from Google, but I never got the answer I paid for.

The answer you're referring to is at:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Office_Productivity/Office_Suites/MS_Office/Powerpoint/Q_22681100.html?sfQueryTermInfo=1+ink

and it's the same one I gave you.  Sorry it's not what you wanted.

What solution did you find?  It would be great if you included it here and selected it as your answer.  That way everyone gets the answer and you get your points back.

I couldn't follow your answer and get to the right series of screens, though as it turns out I think you were giving me the solution I ended up finding on my own.  Here's how I would have written the answer - "From "normal" view of PowerPoint file, click on "Animations" tab at top, unclick "On Mouse Click" under "Advance Slide""
