The presenter screen (working title) for Impress is a feature (currently in development) that aids a presenter during a slide show. It provides information on a second screen, that typically is not visible to the audience. This includes

  • a view to the currently displayed slide (for when the presenter faces the audience and can not see the primary screen)
  • a preview of the next slide or next effect
  • the notes of the current slide
  • the current time and/or the elapsed time
  • navigation buttons for going to the previous/next slide

The presenter screen is planned to be an extension. However, some core libraries will have to be modified and extended to support the presenter screen extension.


The draft specification can be found here.

Development has begun and there is a working prototype in the presenterview child work space.
