There are at least three ways to start a slide show:
Select View menu < Slide Show
Click the projector button on the lower left part of the screen
Note: clicking the projector
button is the ONLY way to start the slide show from a slide other
than the title slide. All other methods start the presentation always
from the first slide.
Hit the F5 Key
Of these three methods, the best is the last one. It is generally
recommended that you use the keyboard shortcuts instead of the mouse
to navigate through the show while you present, the reason being that
this method is faster and makes you look comfortable and knowledgeable
as a presenter and thus you make a better impression to your audience.
For this reason, even though you can use the mouse to access the
Show Controls Menu (the Show Controls button appears on the lower
left corner of the screen when you move the mouse while in slide show
mode -- see image below), it is best to use the
following keyboard shortcuts:
Go to the next slide: press the SPACE
BAR, ENTER, PAGE DOWN, or right arrow key.
Go to the previous slide: press BACKSPACE,
PAGE UP, or the left arrow key.
Exit slide show (at anytime): hit Esc
Access the pen tool (in order to draw in the screen):
CTRL + P
