NOTES:

  • If a feature is not available in a presentation, the shortcut for it will not work in the player.
  • The fast forward, jump forward, and jump backward shortcuts are not available as buttons in the player.
  • When you use the jump forward and jump backward shortcuts, you will skip within the presentation a pre-determined amount-for example, Ctrl+] skips you 30 seconds forward in a presentation. If a chapter point appears before the pre-determined time, using the shortcut will take you to the chapter point instead. So if you use Ctrl+] and there is a chapter point before the 30 second interval, the shortcut will stop there. If you use Ctrl+] again, the shortcut will take you 30 seconds forward from the chapter point.
