Impress: Normal view showing both slide and Notes?

When writing a presentation, it is normal to compose the slides concurrently with speaker notes.
In MS PPT, the ‘Normal’ view shows both the slide and Notes.
In Impress, is it possible to display the slide notes while composing the slide?
This is an extremely important feature for those of us doing lots of presentations…
Thanks!
Best Regards, Dave

I presume you have tried View > Notes?

“View Notes” does not allow updating the slide, so does not provide the needed functionality.

How about Window > New Window, arrange side-by-side, and have one window showing Notes, the other window showing Slides. It might constrict available space so you could close the page panes and use keyboard shortcuts to navigate. Or just use two screens.
