Corel WordPerfect - Continuously Play A Presentations Slide Show Automatically (8/9/10)


Have you ever seen a slide show on a kiosk, such as a job fair or trade show, that loops over and over? You can create the same effect with your slide show. This means the slide show runs continuously without any involvement from you. This is a handy feature for slide shows, for example, that are displayed before the main presentation begins to engage the audience. Once you just start the show, it will continue to move from slide to slide automatically until you stop it. First, you need to set the timing for the slides and then run the slide show continuously.


To set the slide timing, choose Format | Slide Properties | Display Sequence from the menu bar. In the Display Next Slide panel, select the After A Delay Of option button. In the Seconds box, enter a value for the number of seconds that you want the slides to be displayed. The number of seconds you apply to a slide also apply to any animated items, such as bullets or graphics, that have a display sequence associated with them, Then, select the Apply To All Slides In Slide Show check box and click OK. To set a different timing for one particular slide, select the slide and choose Format | Slide Properties | Display Sequence from the menu bar. Enter a different value in the Seconds text box and make sure the Apply To All Slides In Slide Show check box isn't selected. Then, click OK.


To run the show continuously, choose View | Play Slide Show from the menu bar. Select the first slide you want displayed in the Beginning Slide list box. Then, select the Repeat Slide Show Until you Press ESC check box and click Play. To stop the slide show, press [Esc].
