Interesting. I am forced to (only somewhat facetiously) ask: Why are 
*you* standing up, facilitating discussion, if you are the editor? 
Shouldn't that be the chair's job? More seriously: Since we started this 
PowerPoint/Comments-at-the-mic thing oh so many years ago, doing 
document reviews in presentation form where the editor is the one doing 
the slides has created this problem. Perhaps a better mode would be for 
the editor to write up the list of open issues, have the chair project 
them if need be, and the editor can get up to the mic with 
explanations/questions as needed but otherwise remain seated so they can 
jot down the notes they need. I think I've done something like that a 
long time ago as an editor. Worth trying, I'd think.
