Tips

  • In the app version and in presentation mode, hold down your finger on the screen to create a laser pointer effect.
  • Get the Keynote remote function to control the presentation on another device such as another ipad, iphone, or Mac - and the laser pointer feature works as well if remoting from iOS to iOS.
  • Great presentation mode that will display speakers notes on the ipad (with a small version of the slide) but show only the slide to the display interface (projector, etc).
