[Solved] Impress with two monitors

Postby une » Thu Apr 20, 2017 2:51 pm

I have tried to configure Impress with two monitors but have no success.
I am using 4.3.1 and windows10.
I understand there is the "presentation console" and I have downloaded it but this will not start.
I want to do a slideshow and at my laptop want to see my private notes and at the other screen/projector see only the slideshow without notes.
Anyone have a solution?? Maybe another program??

In Impress, select /Slide Show /Slide show settings and choose your display screen from the dropdown at the bottom under "Multiple displays"; this may not be active until you have a second display connected; any monitor will serve as the second display for experimentation purposes. The Presenter console will not show up until doing /Slide Show /Slide Show with a second monitor connected.

It is good to experiment at home using any monitor as a projector substitute; note your choice of settings onto an adhesive label and stick that on your laptop, so you do not have to experiment in front of an audience.

No, no need to download. Presenter console is embedded in Impress since 4.0.0.
