You may also press the “F5″ key on your keyboard, or right- (or Control-) click and select the “Image selection list…” option from the shortcut menu.

Zoom and pan images

  1. To zoom into an image, use your mouse to click into the image. Continue to click to zoom into more detail. You may also press the “equals” key (=) on your keyboard.
  2. To zoom out of an image, press the Shift key while clicking into the image. Continue to Shift-click with your mouse to zoom further out of the image. You may also press the “minus” key (-) on your keyboard.
  3. To pan within a zoomed image, click into the image and drag with your mouse to a different location within the image. You may also use the arrow keys on your keyboard to pan to different areas within the zoomed-in image.
  4. To view the image at Actual Size, click on the “Change view” iconRatioImagePalette in the toolbar. This will display the image at a 1:1 ratio. You may also press the “nine” key (9) on your keyboard. Another alternative is to right- (or Control-) click, go to the “Display,” and then select the “Actual Size” option from the shortcut menu.
    You may continue to zoom into the image (repeat step #1), but the “Change view” icon will change color image:icon oiv ip actualb.gif when you go past the actual size of the image. This is a indication that the image may begin to pixelate as you zoom past its actual size.
  5. To reset the image to Fit to Frame, press the Shift key while clicking on the “Change view” icon RatioImagePalette in the toolbar. This will resize the image so that it will fit, in its entirety, in the space allowed, whether a full screen, or a split screen. You may also press the “zero” key (0) on your keyboard. Another alternative is to right- (or Control-) click, go to the “Display,” and then select the “Fit to frame” option from the shortcut menu.

Display data

Quick Tips

  • If you have multiple monitors attached to your computer, you may elect the display the Slide Presentation in dual screen mode. For more information, please see: Dual screen presentations.
  • If your slides appear small when projected, so that a black border appears around them, you may want to scale them up to match the monitor resolution. You can change this setting in the General tab of the Preferences dialog; for detailed instructions, please see: User Preferences.

Exit slide presentation

  1. When you reach the end of your presentation, a message with appear in the lower left corner of the screen: “Press ESC to exit presentation.
  2. To close the Slide Presentation, press the “Esc” key on your keyboard.

Dual-Screen presentation

If you have more than one monitor connected to your computer, OIV will automatically detect them. Thus, whenever you start a presentation, you will be prompted to decide whether or not to use all available monitors. If you do decide to use all available monitors, you will be presenting your images or slides in dual screen mode.

You may disable the automatic detection of multiple monitors. Go to the “Edit” toolbar button and select the “Preferences…” option. For Macs, this option is under the “Artstor OIV” toolbar menu.

Please note that you should only change this setting if you are experiencing problems with connecting to second screen or projector. For more information, please see: User Preferences.

Dual screen Image Palette presentation

  1. Start the Image Palette presentation.
  2. A new window will open, prompting you to decide whether or not to use all available monitors. Click on the “Yes” button to proceed with the dual screen presentation.
  3. The first image will appear in screen #1, and the second image in the sequence will appear in screen #2. Each side will act independently, so you must use the toolbar to control each image on the two screens. The same tools and procedures for navigating the Image Palette presentation on single monitor will apply in dual screen mode. For more detailed instructions on single monitor presentations, please see: Navigating Image Palette presentations.
    • Click on NextImageIconImagePalette the “Next” toolbar icon in screen #1, the second image in the sequence will appear in screen #1 – while screen #2 remains static. You will need to click on NextImageIconImagePalette the “Next” icon in the toolbar in screen #2 to advance that image. In dual screen mode, the only way to shift back and forth between screens is to use the toolbar. The Tab keyboard shortcut will not allow you shift the focus between split-screen images as when presenting on a single monitor with the Image Palette presentation.
    • To set up a left and right “carousel” presentation, you will need to organize the images in the Image Palette so that all of the images in the left “carousel” are in the front half, while all the images in the right “carousel” are in the back half.
    This way, when you present in dual screen mode, you can use the “Select an image” iconShowSelectorImagePalette in the toolbar in screen #2 to jump to the first image in the right “carousel.” From here, you can toggle back and forth between screens to bring up each image comparison. For more detailed instructions, please see: Navigating Image Palette presentations – Quick Tips.
  4. Since each monitor in the dual screen mode behaves independently, you can also split the screen in each monitor by using the corresponding icons in the toolbars, whether the “Split screen horizontally” icon SplitScreenHorizonImagePalette or the “Split screen vertically” icon SplitScreenVertImagePalette.
    This way, you can show one full-screen image in screen #1, while splitting the screen horizontally to show two comparative images in screen #If you split both monitors, you may display up to four different images. Each of the images, whether the monitor is split or not, will have its own toolbar that you can use to advance to another image, show data, etc.
  5. Click on the “Exit” toolbar icon CloseToolbarImagePalette in either screen to close the Image Palette presentation.
    If you have split either screen, clicking on the “Exit” icon on one side will simply close that image. You will need to click on the “Exit” icon in the (now) full-screen image to close entirely out of the presentation.

Dual screen Slide Presentation

Rearrange the slides in the Slide Sorter so that they are in the order you wish to present them. When organizing your slides for dual screen presentations, remember that each pair of slides will automatically advance on both screens at the same time. For more detailed instructions, please see the Quick Tips below.

  1. Start the Slide Presentation.
  2. A new window will open, prompting you to decide whether or not to use all available monitors. Click on the “Yes” button to proceed with the dual screen presentation.
  3. The first slide will appear in screen #1, and the second slide in the sequence will appear in screen #2. The same keyboard shortcuts and procedures for navigating the Slide Presentation on a single monitor will apply in dual screen mode, with slight differences. For more detailed instructions on single monitor presentations, please see: Navigating slide presentations.
    • Advance the presentation by pressing the “Space bar” or the “Page Down” key on your keyboard. You may also right- (or Control-) click with your mouse and select the “Next slide” option. The third slide will appear in screen #1, and the fourth slide will appear in screen #2. Each time you advance the presentation, the next pair of slides will appear, in tandem, on both screens.
    • To go to the previous pair of slides, press the “Shift” key while hitting the “Space bar” or use the “Page Up” key. You may also right- (or Control-) click with your mouse and select the “Previous slide” option. The previous pair will display on both screens.
  4. To use the keyboard shortcuts related to zoomable images, you will need to switch focus between screens. Use the Alt- (or ) 1 keyboard shortcut to select screen #1 and Alt- (or ) 2 to shift to screen #2. Then, you can use the following shortcuts to the selected zoomable image:
    • Zoom into an image: Mouse click or “equals” (=) key
    • Zoom out of an image: Shift-Mouse click or “minus” (-) key
    • View image at Actual Size: “nine” (9) key
    • Resize image to Fit to Frame: “zero” (0) key
    • Pan within image: Shift-Arrow keys (up, down, left, and right)
  5. Press the “Esc” key to close the Slide Presentation. You may also right- (or Control-) click with your mouse and select the “Exit presentation” option.

Quick Tips

To organize a dual screen Slide Presentation, it is important to remember that pairs of slides will advance on both screens at the same time.

  1. Expand the Slide Sorter pane so that it displays two columns of slides, to help you visualize the presentation and plan the order of each pair of slides. To do this, move your mouse along the right edge of the Slide Sorter pane until the pointer changes into a double-headed arrow. Click and drag this border to the right until two columns of slides are visible in the window.
  2. In this view of the Slide Sorter, the slides in the left column will appear in screen #1. You may think of this as your left “carousel.” The slides in the right-hand column, the right “carousel” slides, screen #2.
