If you would like to review changes you’ve made prior to publishing the entire presentation, Presenter ’09 offers a Preview option.

To preview the current slide, the next 3 slides, or a range of slides:

  1. Select Articulate --> Preview.
  2. Select one of the following preview options:
    • Preview This Slide: Preview the current slide only.
    • Preview Next 3 Slides: Preview the current slide and the next 2 slides (or other value as defined in Managing Presentation Options: Other).
    • Preview Range of Slides: Launch the Preview Range dialog and define the range of slides to preview by selecting from the drop-down menus the starting slide and ending slide to preview, or click the Select All link to select all slides in your project. Press the Preview Slide X or Preview All button to preview slides, or Cancel to exit without previewing.

From the Preview player you can interact with the Presenter ’09 player using all controls that you’ve enabled in your active player template (via Player Templates). Additionally, you can select the following options:

  • Close Preview: To close the Preview dialog box.
  • Edit Slide: To make changes to the current slide being previewed.
  • Player Template: To preview the current slide(s) using an alternate player template, presenter, or logo. In the Player Template dialog, use the drop-down menus to select the desired settings, then click OK to preview or Cancel to exit without making any changes.
