Feature request: got to certain slide in preview

Unread postby Kai » Thu Jul 18, 2019 12:57 pm

In the Preview of a slideshow I am missing two things:

1. A command (keyboard preferred) to jump to the first or last slide. This is a must I think.

2. A control that allows me to jump to a particular slide. Nice to have.

Hi Kai,

A preview always starts on the currently selected slide in the slide list.

So to preview at a specific slide, just start a fresh preview. You don't have to close the one running, it will update to the selected slide.

cheers,

Martin.

Marting, that's fine when working on a file, but the keyboard shortcuts can also be very handy when actually presenting stuff, or exercising a presentation.

Hi Kai,

On the Publish page, try the Slide Indicators or the Slide Thumbnails skins in the dropdown list.

You can click on any indicator/thumbnail to jump to that slide.

In most of the skins you can use the keyboard arrow keys to move to the next slide, and also the PageUp, PageDown keys. I agree it would be handy for the Home and End keys to jump to the first and last slides.

cheers,

Martin.
