Especially convenient for online presentations, our app’s Presentation mode features two separate elements: Speaker Notes and Slides, each appearing in its own window.
The majority of our users are doing an online presentation from a single device. In such a restrained set-up, being able to comfortably view your notes in full-screen mode is essential. Not worrying about what your audience will see, will also help you stay focused on your speech.
💡 Note that the advice provided below for online presentations also applies to recording presentations using third-party software (such as QuickTime or Loom).
When you activate the Presentation Mode, the slides will automatically open in a separate window. This allows third-party software like Zoom or Google Meets to capture that window and display it to your audience. Meanwhile, you can comfortably read your notes on the teleprompter.
Remember to have the Presentation Mode turned ON and the slides preview window open before launching the software.
Select the Share Screen option in the toolbar. By default, your whole desktop will be shared, not optimal. Instead, select the window of your slides.
If you do not see this window appearing, launch the Presentation Mode again and switch the Share Screen options (for example from Basic to Advanced) to refresh the screen. The slides should appear in a different window.
In the screenshot below, the slides’ preview is hiding the teleprompter. Of course, you can rearrange the order of the windows, for example by putting the slides behind the notes or on in a different display. This will not change what is shown to your audience.
At the bottom of the screen, in the toolbar, click on Present now. You then have the option to select Your entire screen/ A window/ A tab.
Chose A window and select the window of the slides in the following screen.
Just like in Zoom, if the slides’ preview is hiding the teleprompter, you can rearrange the order of the windows, without changing what your audience will see.
On the teleprompter, you have two layouts available to see at the same time the thumbnails and your note. While presenting, you can always switch from one to the other, without your audience realizing it.
Makes the thumbnails bigger than your notes, convenient when you have a detailed diagram or busy slides to go through.
When the main focus is your notes.
Remember that you can navigate your presentation by Slides or Speaker Notes. More about that on Navigate Your Slides.
