I have to guess why you want to do this as you did not say, as an electronic note book?
- set up the presenter layout with timer, clock, current slide and notes; (preferences > presenter display)
- then run in reherse mode (view > rehearse slideshow)
- in rehease mode, builds and transition effects do not work
THanks Gary. Yes this would basically just be using it as electronic notes. I cAn break my notes into many smaller chunks & much larger fonts to help keep my place as my vision is changing on me, and I really want the timer & clock right there. I find myself forgetting to check the time when I first start speaking, or if I'm introduced earlier or later than expected I need to calculate time elapsed/left while still speaking & maintaining my train of thought. Hence absolutely needing the timer instead of simple making my notes be the slideshow itself.
