Sorry if this has been answered elsewhere--my searches haven't been fruitful.



• Keynote presentation on my MBA, connected to an Epson projector (client's)

• Keynote > Preferences > Slideshow > Present on Primary Display selected

• System Prefs > Displays > Mirroring OFF
For some reason, the presentation is still mirroring---the Presenter view doesn't appear on the Air.
The crazy thing is that I present this particular Keynote session fairly often; in the past, when a client's projector triggered mirroring, I'd simply de-select mirroring in Display Pref's. Fixed.
I used this presentation in Salt Lake City a couple of weeks ago. Worked like normal, with the Presenter view on my Air.
I plugged it in today at a different event, and :::bam::: the Presenter view refused to pop up. No settings changes. Only difference is the client's projector.
Any ideas about what's happening, and how to fix it? This particular presentation I can do in my sleep (don't need notes), but really need that timer...and will need notes the next time I present totally new content.
Thanks in advance for your shared wisdom.
