I have a slide show of 17 practice math problems that I have set to 90 second automatic slide transition.

I cannot locate any documentation, here or in the user's manual, that tells me whether a slide show set to run automatically can be paused with a specific slide on view (in case I need to show my class how to work the problem before moving on to the next problem).

Is there an easy way to do this? I will be using a wireless presenter, so if possible a non keyboard solution would be excellent.

Thanks in advance,

If you right click during a slide show, a small context menu pops up. While the menu is in view, the automated advance feature is paused.

You can use the context sensitive menu to select which slide to go to next.

That's a neat little trick. I knew about the context menu, but I didn't know that it paused the slide.

Thanks.
