The CustomShow Desktop Viewer application allows users to view SlideShows from their installed device. The Audience View is used to present content via a separate display, without showing User Navigation controls or other elements presenters may not wish their audience to see.
Please note, when working with the Audience View, the Desktop Viewer window controlling SlideShow playback is referred to as the Presenter View.
As Notes are now visible in the Desktop Viewer, the Audience View serves as a way to ensure both parties receive the best possible CustomShow experience.
By default, the Audience View window will automatically open and display SlideShow content on any display that is not the current display for the main Desktop Viewer window. This window will open in Full Screen. If no additional display is detected, the Audience View will not open.
Users can drag the Presenter View window to other windows while the Audience View is open, and the windows will rearrange to accommodate these changes.
- The Audience View will attempt to always display to the right of the Presenter View.
- In the case of a vertical display configuration, the Audience View will attempt to display above the Presenter View.
Double-clicking or clicking Play on any SlideShow will begin SlideShow playback from the beginning of the presentation(s) within.
After viewing a SlideShow, clicking on the Return to SlideShow List button will return a user to their SlideShow List and close the Audience View. If the user clicks on the Return to [SlideShow Name] option in the top-left corner, the Audience View will reopen and begin playback from the position the SlideShow had been previously.
Users can manually open and close the Audience View with a Keyboard Shortcut. When the Presenter View is selected, pressing CTRL+D (Windows) or CMD+D (Mac OS X) will toggle the Audience View to open or close, depending on its current status.
