Description raindrops 2008-10-11 09:42:41 UTC
The current design of Impress provides a single "Notes" area attached with each

This can be used either as speaker notes or as handout notes; but not both.

Note that these notes are totally different; both in content and use:

* Speaker notes contain expert level comments and additional information
required to answer queries from the audience. They also contain tips/reminders
to the speaker for introduction, ice-breakers, coffee break, etc.

In dual monitor mode presentations (i.e., when the presenter uses his laptop as
prompter), he needs to see THESE notes (and NOT the handout notes).

* Handout notes are more basic level. Typically, they elaborate the bullet
points in the slide; or comment on the charts/figures provided in the slide.

Creating two different presentations (one with speaker notes and the other with
handout notes) is not viable, because you cannot change both documents in sync.

Therefore, please provide an extra area to enter the speaker notes (as opposed
to the audience notes). Also, in dual monitor mode, the presenter should be able
to view the speaker notes.
