Microsoft Wireless Notebook Presenter Mouse 8000?

Postby Knightsabre » Fri Apr 04, 2008 7:13 pm

I have just gotten a new Microsoft Wireless Notebook Presenter Mouse 8000. This is a Bluetooth laser mouse with presentation controls on the bottom, along with a visible laser pointer.
I have tried it with PowerPoint, and it works exactly as advertised there.
I am trying to use it with Ooo Impress, but none of the presentation control buttons on the bottom of the mouse will do anything in Impress.

Has anyone gotten one of these mice to work with Impress? If so, what is needed to make it work?

Thanks in advance,

Warren

Hi and welcome to the community!

Wireless presenters unfortunately do not work with Impress so far.
This is due to the missing support of special shortcuts - see also this thread.

Issue 63236 deals with this problem, so you might want to vote for it to underline its importance.

Hi Warren,

this little tool works perfectly for me: http://www.angermayr.net/download/presente.htm. Simply download http://www.angermayr.net/download/presenter.zip, unzip, run Presenter.exe, and turn on the OpenOffice mode by selecting the corresponding option through right-clicking the Presenter's tray icon.

All the best,

Great hint, Stephan! 8-)

Thanks ever so much, also on behalf of the community! :)

Knightsabre (or mods), thanks for adding "[Solved]" at the beginning of the first post title (by using the edit button).
