Impress Multiple Monitor Support

Postby StanL » Mon Jun 09, 2008 2:49 am

Welcome beginner. Please answer all of the questions below which may provide information necessary to answer your question.
Which version of are you using?2.4
What Operating System (version) are you using?WIN2000 SP2
What is your question or comment? MS Power Point has a very useful feature called "Presenter's View". This is used when utilizing multiple monitors. The secondary monitor (typically a projector) displays the slide presentation and the main monitor provides speakers notes and current slide with navigation control. Impression provides multiple monitor support but the secondary monitor behaves like a separate desktop. When the secondary monitor is showing the slides, the navigation control will only control the secondary monitor. I use a Matrox G550 dual-head graphics card. Is there any way to duplicate the MS Powerpoint feature?
