Powerpoint Ink Reacts Different in Different places

I am teaching from home because... well, you all know why. So I've had to get a pen tablet (similar to this). I've noticed that when I'm working on my presentation, I can press Control-Z to erase the last mark I drew (and then again for the one before that, etc.).

However, when I'm presenting, I cannot do so. I can only delete everything I've drawn on that page. This last is done using a tablet feature which lets me press "E" when the pen is close to the drawing board to erase.

Why the difference? (Actually, I know that one: Because it's a different mode). How can I get Control-Z to work in presentation (full screen) mode?

EDIT: I guess I should add that I'm running a very recent version (MS Powerpoint for Office 365 MSO 64-bit) on a recent Win 10 installation.
