Video games slide presentations tip 1: Helpful keyboard shortcuts
Ctrl-Z = undo last command
F4 = repeat last command
For example, you mark an element on the video games slide and assign the color red as the fill color. If you then click on another object and press F4, the other object will also be filled in red. In contrast to the “brush”, i.e. transferring format, only the color is changed. With the brush, all properties are always transferred.
Video games slide presentations tip 2: Align elements to guidelines
Elements on the film can be precisely aligned with 100% using the guidelines.
Switching on/off: Alt-F9 switches the guidance lines on and off. Elements on the slide can be aligned with the guidelines.
Moving the guideline: If you want to change the guideline, click on the guideline with the left mouse button, keep the mouse button pressed and wait until the cursor changes to a double arrow. Then you can move the leader line.
Copy guideline: If you want to have several guidelines on the slide, press the CTRL key and then click again with the left mouse button on a line and drag in the desired direction with the mouse button pressed.
Delete a leader line: Simply drag the leader line outside of the slide.
Video games slide presentations tip 3: Slide show mode
To start a presentation in screen mode, you can use the F5 key. Then the presentation starts on the first slide. If you want to start the slide show from the current slide, press Shift-F5.
Once the presentation has started, you can easily switch the screen to black by pressing b (= black) on the keyboard. The black can be canceled again with any key. Alternatively, white is also an option. To do this, simply press w (w = white).
If you want to jump within the slide show, you can simply type in the slide number on the keyboard and confirm with ENTER.
Video games slide presentations tip 4: Include videos
To do this, simply go to INSERT – Film and Sound – Film from file – and then select the appropriate film file. Then click on play automatically. WMV and MPG are particularly suitable as film formats. Difficulties may arise with other formats. If you want, you can then easily change the size of the video by dragging the corners of the video to enlarge it, as you would with pictures.
