Powerpoint is not letting me add notes to my slides on MacOS Monterey 12.3

When I try to add notes to my slides by clicking on Click to add notes, it just blinks and does not show the writing cursor. And if I try to type, it does not type anything. If I try to copy-paste from elsewhere, then it just pastes my text onto the slide instead of inside the notes. Please see this video: view
And please get back to me as soon as possible. I have an assignment due in two days and can not do it without PowerPoint.

    Hi @Ayesha Babar

    Does this issue occur with all presentations?
    I would like to suggest you create a new blank presenation to check this issue.

    Did you make any changes to Office prior to this issue
    Such as installing 3rd-party add-ins and updates.
    Please click "PowerPoint" on top bar > About PowerPoint, check the version number and license name. Then take a screenshot and share with us. (If there is any privacy informaion like your email account, please remember to cover it.)

    It's recommended to click View tab > Switch to Outline View > Clikc "Notes" option and click on "Click to add notes" for a test.

    I also suggest you click "Tools" on top bar > PowerPoint Add-ins, temporarily disable add-ins.

    Any updates, welcome to post back.
