remove popup menu on right mouse click

Postby Jim Manuel » Wed Mar 19, 2008 3:56 pm

How do I disable the popup menu in the slide show? With Freelance and PowerPoint I was able to move to the previous slide with a right mouse click. This requires an option change in PowerPoint, in the "View" "Slide show " box. This allows seamless movement backward and forward from a wireless remote.

Hi and welcome to the community!

Sorry you didn't get an answer yet, and in fact I probably cannot give you a satisfying one either. :roll:

AFAIK, the right mouse click behavior cannot be changed in Impress yet.
The support for wireless devices is not ideal so far, as shows this issue about a similar problem.
So you could file a new issue of type enhancement, as it is certainly a good idea to allow to define the right mouse button function differently.

As a workaround, maybe the driver of your wireless device allows the assignment of a key to the right click. So you could define arrow left or arrow up to the right click in order to get the slide back function.
