When you are ready to show your slides to others, you can present or export your slides for viewing.
Present Your Slides
Click the Present icon in the File or View toolbar to begin your presentation from your currently active slide. If you’d like to Present from the first slide in your presentation regardless of your currently active slide, click the arrow just below the Present icon and choose Present from beginning slide.
When you present a next gen presentation, any changes to the presentation made simultaneously will automatically flow through while you present. This can be useful for last-minute updates. However, if you want to present a static presentation, you can present from a revision in the History panel.
To navigate your slides, use the arrow keys on your keyboard to advance through your slides, or click on the displayed slide. Press the Esc button on your keyboard to exit the presentation.
