How to use the presenter view to deliver slides in Zoho Show

Deliver using the Presenter View

As a presenter, no matter how well-rehearsed you are, you still need your speaker notes to execute a flawless presentation. Your notes help you remember the key points that you want to discuss with each slide, but you don't need the audience to see them. With the Presenter View in Zoho Show, you get one window for the audience and another one just for you, making it easy to put the slideshow on a projector and keep your notes to yourself.

To deliver using presenter view,

Before you start using the Presenter View, make sure that you've shared your computer screen with the projector in Extend mode. Once you've done that, present your slides.
  1. Click   dropdown and select Presenter View.

  2. On your screen, you will see the Presenter Window along with a small pop-up window called the Audience Window. 
    The Presenter Window - Here, you can see your upcoming slides, your slide notes, how much time has elapsed during your presentation, and a variety of presentation tools to enhance your delivery. 
    The Audience Window - Displays only the slides, without the rest of the information that you see in your Presenter Window. This is the window which is usually extended to the projector screen or other secondary display.

  3. Drag and drop the audience window onto the projector and click Start Presentation button on your Presenter window.

  4. You will see the slideshow in both windows. You can enhance your delivery using the following features:
    Next slide: See what's coming next in your slideshow by clicking the  Next  icon    in the right pane.
    Notes: Notes serve as the script for your presentation, so that you can keep track of the key points of your slides. Your audience can't see them; only you can. Click the Plus    and Minus    icons in your Notes panel to make the text larger or smaller.
    Slide Preview: Click the Slide Preview  icon   to see a thumbnail view of all of your slides or to jump to a specific slide at any time during the presentation.

    Highlighter tools: Advanced presentation delivery tools include a pen or pointer to draw attention to specific slide content, the zoom tool to get a closer look, and much more. 
    Timer: Keep track of the time elapsed since the presentation began. The Timer in the top bar will automatically start recording when you start your presentation. Click the Pause icon  to take a break anytime during your presentation; click the Resume  icon   when you're ready to continue.
    Blackout: Freezes and masks the current slide to focus the audience's attention on your narrative instead of the slide. To continue presenting, click Uncover
