Blanking the Screen
You can also jump to a certain slide by typing its number and pressing Enter. For example,
to go to the third slide, you would type 3 and then press Enter. Another way is to press
Ctrl+S to open an All Slides dialog box listing the titles of all of the slides in the presenta-
tion. You can click a slide to select it and then click Go To, as shown in Figure 18.5.
The All Slides dialog box lists the titles of all of the slides so that you can select the one you
want to go to.
To jump back to the fi rst slide in the presentation, hold down both the left and right mouse
buttons for two seconds (or type 1 and press Enter).
Blanking the Screen
Sometimes during a live presentation there may be a delay. Whether it is a chatty audience
member with a complicated question, a fi re drill, or just an intermission, you will want to
pause the show.
If you have the slides set for manual transition, then the slide you stopped on remains on
the screen until you resume. However, you may not want this. For example, it may be dis-
tracting to the audience, especially if the pause is to allow someone to get up and speak in
front of the screen. A solution is to turn the screen into a blank expanse of black or white.
To do so, type W or a comma (for white), or type B or a period (for black). To return to the
presentation, you can press the same key or press any key on the keyboard.
While the screen is completely black or white, you can draw on it with the pen tool so that it becomes a convenient
“scratch pad.” Annotations you make with the pen on the blank screen are not saved; when you resume the presenta-
tion, they are gone forever. (In contrast, you do have the opportunity to save any annotations you make on the slides
themselves, as you will learn in the next section.)
