Controlling your presentation

Switching slides

For day-to-day presenting, there’s only two things to remember:

  • Next Slide: Use the SPACE bar on your keyboard.

  • Previous Slide: Press P (for Previous) on your keyboard.

You can also navigate around with the arrow keys on your keyboard, but hitting SPACE is much simpler!

Use full-screen mode

Press F to show your presentation in full-screen mode.

Press Esc to stop the full-screen mode again.

Pause the presentation with a black screen

Sometimes you want to focus your audience on something else than the slides.

Press . or b to turn the presentation black.

Discuss things out, then press the key again to return.
