Hiding PowerPoint notes

This question might have been asked before but I couldn't find it.

I have a PowerPoint file to translate, in MemoQ, but the client wants only the slides translated, not the notes, which are fairly extensive. Is there a way to hide the notes, as you would untranslatable sections in Word or Excel, so they don't show up in the translation window?

Import with options (without notes) Sep 15, 2016

Copying and pasting for the memoQ help:
How to begin

In the Translations pane of Project home, click Import With Options on the Documents ribbon tab. Or, when setting up a new project, on the Translation documents page of the New memoQ project wizard, click Import with options.... Then, select one or more files to import: the Document Import Settings dialog appears.

To access this dialog when reimporting a document, select the document in the Translations pane of Project home, and click Reimport on the Documents ribbon tab.

When importing the PPT into a memoQ project, just import it unchecking the notes.

Thank you, I was not aware of that option.

To get there, I had to select "Change filter and configuration" in the "Import with options" window.
