Video: Displaying slides and animations

For each file that is loaded, a tab is displayed across the top of the viewer. Quick Start and Session Info are already there when you log in. But we also see the PowerPoint file and Excel files labeled. Each tab has an X in the top right that will close the file, that is, empty it from this viewer. If you've uploaded a PowerPoint slide you'll see a small controller at the top of the screen. Clicking the arrow to the right will advance the slide to the next page.

Displaying slides and animations

For each file that is loaded, a tab is displayed across the top of the viewer. Quick Start and Session Info are already there when you log in. But we also see the PowerPoint file and Excel files labeled. Each tab has an X in the top right that will close the file, that is, empty it from this viewer. If you've uploaded a PowerPoint slide you'll see a small controller at the top of the screen. Clicking the arrow to the right will advance the slide to the next page.

Clicking the arrow to the left will move to the previous page. If in PowerPoint you assigned animations to your slide, clicking Next will display each of the items in turn. Notice also a drop-down list arrow that allows you to jump from one slide to the next. So I can move through the presentation quickly without clicking Next for each slide. If you've used the Title field in PowerPoint, the text will display in this drop-down list, so you will be able to move to a slide based on its name or the text at the top of the slide instead of just the number as we see here.

I'll move back to the first slide. Notice also in the lower left portion of the screen, you have some controllers that allow you to change the size of the viewer. On my screen I'm displaying this slide in 96% view. When I click this button, I can increase the size or decrease the size to make it easier for me to see. I'll set it to 100%. I also have zoom controls. Zoom In and Zoom Out will allow me to increase or decrease with a single click.

I can show the Thumbnail view of my slides. That makes it easy for me to find a slide and move ahead to that slide. And I can use an option called Sync Display for All, which insures my participants are seeing the interface the same way that I see it. Full Screen increases the size of the view to take over my entire screen. I no longer see the panels on the right side, but instead I see a toolbar at the top that lets me make changes to the view as I need.

So if I want to see if participants are typing in chat, I can open the Chat panel and it layers over the top of my Full Screen view. It can be challenging to work in this view, because it takes up so much space that I'm covering up all of the other tools in WebEx. I'll click Return to display my screen in Normal view and I'll turn off the Thumbnails when I don't need them. So as you can see, displaying slides and animations is fairly straightforward, but you will want to practice before you have students in your session.
