  • Have a blank slide at the beginning and a couple at the end.
    Use the "b" and "w" keys to make the screen go blank at the end of the presentation or while you are answering questions.
  • To turn your arrow into a pen, press Alt P. Press Alt A to go back to the arrow.
  • To find more shortcut keys, press help while you are doing your slide show for a complete list.
