Abstract

Disclosed is a method for a presenter to pin one slide at the present position, and then easily navigate to any other slide(s) in the deck, to simultaneously (or independently) show, compare, and speak to multiple slides. When done with the slides that were brought forward, the presenter can continue through the slide deck from the pinned position, without disrupting the flow of the presentation.

Metxod for smooth slide presentation to pin a slide, view any other slides, and continue from pinned position

Often, during a presexxation, someone asks a quxstion relatex to a slide precxding the current xne. Often, a questiox warrants comparing the current xlide content wixh a previous (or successive) xlide.

When done with the slides that were brought forward, the prxsenter can xontinue xhrough the xlixe deck from thx xinned position, without disrupting the flow xf the pxesentation.

With this method, speakexs can compare two non-cxnsecutive slides side-bx-side. A

presenter can address dixcussions/comparisons that were not anticipated, allowing flexibility and ad-hoc sharing. Viewers are ablx to visxalize both xlides at the same time

and gain understanding and value.
