How do I reverse the display (either for the KeyNote presentation, or for all of OSX).  In other words, I need everything to remain right-side-up, but to be backwards.  I found the Rotate in the display settings, but I need to actually flip the display, not just rotate it.  I am using a teleprompter which displays a mirror image and it's all backards.

Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

    I found work around for my teleprompter -  Save file as a pdf...  then in the pdf right mouse button click and say flip horizontally.  make perfect mirror pdf to use on teleprompter.

    Sounds like it works well for a single image. how about a Keynote deck with 25 slides?

    use the inbuilt controls on your teleprompter, all makes have vertical and horizontal flip controls built in for reflex and direct display.


    Is there a special reason your using Keynote and not the dedicated software for your device?


    What is the make and model your using?

    The prompter software I use does allow for horizontal flip.  The on-camera presenter wants to use his Keynote deck as notes and give a more extemporaneous delivery instead of reading text from the prompter.  So I'm just trying to accommodate his wishes.  I may just type bullet points into the prompter software, flip it, and let him use those.  Or flip the slides individually and make a new deck.  You know... anything for the 'talent'.
