It’s time to rethink presentations. Somewhere along the way, slide decks became a required part of meetings and our productivity has suffered ever since. Slides have a place, but they’re tremendously overused.
Our everyday status checks, kickoff meetings, and team discussions don’t need slides, they should be quick and painless. That’s what Presentation Mode in Evernote is built to do. Your meetings are about to get a lot more effective.
Great Meetings Happen With Presentation Mode
As an Evernote user, you’re already collecting and writing everything related to your projects in Evernote. When it’s meeting time, connect your computer to an external monitor or projector, and click the Presentation Mode icon. Your notes are instantly transformed into a beautiful full screen, easy to scroll layout.
On Desktop and Mobile
Presentation Mode is now available in Evernote for Windows, Mac, iPhone, and iPad.
Make a Table of Contents
If you want to walk through multiple notes, select them first, then click on ‘Create a Table of Contents.’ Start your presentation from that new note. Now, you have an easy way to progress from note to note.
Screen by Screen
If you want to add emphasis to specific content in a note, put a horizontal line before and after that content. When you’re in Presentation Mode, we’ll do our best to make the sections inside of the horizontal lines show up on a single screen. Use the spacebar on desktop to move through your presentation.
Use the Laser Pointer
When in Presentation Mode, your cursor becomes a laser pointer. It’s perfect for highlighting exactly what you want your audience to focus on.
Present from Your iPhone or iPad
Presentation Mode is also available in Evernote for iPhone and iPad. If you have AirPlay set up, you can present to a second screen right from your device. If you don’t have a second screen, Presentation Mode is still a great way to walk someone through your notes in a clear distraction-free layout.
Great for Images
From mood boards to mock-ups, Presentation Mode is great for showing images. Drop the images into a note, then start your presentation. Tapping on an image brings it to full screen, a click left or right will move you to the next or previous image. On iPhone and iPad, we’ve added useful swipe gestures and a grid mode to easily see the images.
Improve Your Next Meeting
Presentation Mode has completely changed the way meetings happen at Evernote. Try it for your next meeting. Your team will thank you.
