This plugin adds a new page to OpenSlides that can be used as a ‘presenter’ view, adding control that users are likely used to from other presentation software such as Powerpoint to OpenSlides. This page listens to mouse (not yet) and keyboard events to change the currently shown slide.
The main use for this plugin is to provide a simple overview for presenters to use OpenSlides, either with a mouse (soon!), keyboard or presentation remote (which are sometimes called a ‘clicker’, hence the name).
