All, I've googled and not come up with anything truly useful. I'm hoping by squeaking a little someone can give me a tip. Quite often I do Powerpoint presentations using a dual monitor / projector set up. The "Presenter Tools" in Powerpoint 2008 are quite useful to remind me where I am in the presentation, keep timing, etc. However, I can't seem to figure out how to turn them off. The obvious, "Uncheck View Presenter Tools", doesn't seem to do anything. What makes this worse is that there is no way that I can find to open another application over the Presenter Tools without disrupting the actual presentation. I would like to have a notes program open (text file, MacJournal, etc.) to take detailed notes. That eliminates a notebook from my bag. One potential workaround is to use Mirror Mode for the screens -- but that doesn't allow the notes program either? I suspect this is supposed to work and just doesn't. Does anyone know a workaround or have any reasonable suggestions? (FWIW I have to use Powerpoint due to work).
