The following tutorial guides you through the
steps involved in configuring a PowerShow session to run multiple PowerPoint
shows simultaneously on different monitors.
Some things to remember:
- A PowerShow session consists of PowerPoint presentations and the display monitors.
- PowerShow starts setting up the shows from the first monitor.
- A PowerShow session can skip some monitors along the way in setting up shows if you wish to not use those monitors.
- You can configure a show to span multiple consecutive monitors.
- You can also configure presentation notes to span multiple consecutive monitors.
We start a PowerShow session by opening the
presentations that should participate in the session. After open the
presentations, select Slide Show | Power Show... menu item
to launch the PowerShow Session Settings dialog box.
The settings dialog box:
- Shows the number of monitors that PowerShow thinks are present in the system.
- Allows you to select presentation slide show and the number of monitors that the selected show should span across.
- Allows you to select presentation notes and the number of monitors that the notes view should span across. Notes formatting is retained.
- Allows you to select the number of monitors that should be skipped.
- Allows you to save the selected options into PowerShow Session Settings (PSS) file.
Keeping these things in mind, we look at some sample sessions. Check them out:
