Displaying a Presentation

If you have a second screen attached (such as a second monitor or projector), selecting a slide thumbnail image in the Presentation Panel will display that slide on Screen 2. This slide that is being displayed will be indicated by a green border around the thumbnail image in the Presentation Panel. If you have no slides in the Presentation Panel, you will either need to open a previously saved presentation (select Presentations in the Media Panel and select a presentation from the list in the Library Panel) or began building a new presentation (follow the Quickstart Guide to make a small presentation).

Using the Preview Panel

in the Preview Panel to view the slide being displayed

While a second screen is attached and enabled, you can use the Screen 2 tab on the Preview panel to see the slide currently selected to display on the second screen. In version 1.1, the screen 2 tab was changed to show a "live" view of what is being displayed on the second screen along with the "next" slide to be displayed. Clicking on the preview panel or the "next" preview will switch you to the edit tab and change the "edit" focus to that slide (indicated by a red border around the slide thumbnail in the Presentation Panel).

You can continue to select other slides to display on Screen 2 while on the Edit tab. You can still edit this slide by clicking on the Preview panel which will switch the tab to edit and If you bail to black, a pre-set logo, or the current background image without any text or the color bars, you can also still be editing slides using the Edit tab. To present a slide that has been edited, just re-select the thumbnail image in the Presentation Panel.

 

Using the Floating Window

In version 1.3+, you can test a presentation using a floating window that simulates your second screen. This floating screen can be enabled by pulling the Presentation menu to "Floating Screen". If you have enabled the second screen, you may need to select the "Screen 2 Off" button on the Toolbar before being able to enable the Floating Screen. By displaying this window, you will be able to test transitions and text over video as if you had a second screen connected. This is useful for working with LiveWorship without a second screen.

Along the bottom edge of the Floating Screen, the current resolution setting, the percentage and resolution size of the Floating Screen are displayed. Dragging the edge or clicking on the indicated percentage will allow you to change the size of this window.

 

Presenting to the Primary Screen

In version 1.3+, you can test or present by setting your primary screen to display the presentation. After selecting "Single Screen" from the Presentation menu, when you select a slide thumbnail in the Presentation Panel your primary screen will be covered by the selected slide. If you have enabled the second screen or floating screen, you may need to select the "Screen 2 Off" button on the Toolbar or close the floating screen before being able to display to the primary screen.

While displaying a presentation on the primary screen, you can use the keyboard controls to advance slides and the ESC key to end the presentation.

 

Presentation Panel Auto-scroll

selecting a group will automatically scroll the Presentation
panel to show the currently selected group.

While you can change the size of the thumbnail images of slides in the preferences, often the thumbnail image will be larger so that you can visually identify individual slides. When you have more slides in a presentation than are visible at one time in the Presentation panel, clicking on a group name will automatically scroll the Presentation panel window so that the selected group is visible in the Presentation panel.

 

 

Slide Thumbnail Keyboard Keys

the character in the bottom right corner can be used to display slides

In the bottom right corner of the slide thumbnail images in the Presentation Panel, you will see a character. This character is tied to your keyboard and can be used to select slides when you have the Screen 2 tab selected in the Preview Panel. The keyboard is mapped to the slides in your presentation. The first row of keys on your keyboard (1, 2, 3, 4...0) are tied to the first 10 slides in your presentation. The next row of keys (Q, W, E, R, T, Y, U, I, O, P) are mapped to the next 10 slides in your presentation and so on.

 

Hide Media and Library Panels

The size of the slide thumbnail images can be changed in the Size Preferences. However, you may prefer thumbnail images that are easy to read and want to maximize your view while displaying a presentation without needing to use the Media and Library panels for editing. Click with your mouse on the divider between the panels and drag the divider to the bottom of the window to hide the Media and Library panels which will increase the viewing area of the slide thumbnails.
