Using the Laser Pointer

Use the Laser Pointer tool as a pointing device during presentations. The laser pointer is a large red circle that can easily be located even from a distance.

Choose Tool Laser Pointer to activate this tool.

Alternatively, press the O key to switch to the laser pointer. Pressing the ESC key will get you back to the previously used tool.

In Full Screen Mode, the laser pointer is by default available as an Action Button.
