When entering slide show mode and attempting to make annotation by choosing the pen icon (bottom left), the menu hangs and only displays a black box (same shape as menu if it worked properly).
Powerpoint itself then hangs and process needs ended. There are no other processes running high and other tasks (outside of ppt) can still be performed.
If I am very patient, the menu sometimes appears but when the choice of pen is made nothing happens and clicking anywhere on the slide, in an attempt to annotate, results in moving to the next slide.
Would think it points to an issue with the module that handles the annotations but have tried everything (repair office, reinstall, all updates etc).
Any insight please?
