The advantages of using the Slide Finisher


Forced Design Template:

  • The design template saved in the settings file will overwrite the user's presentation design whenever the program is run

  • Ensures consistent design so that individual users:
    • - Do not need to make or modify a slide design
    • - Cannot modify the slide design

  • Modifications of the slide design after using the program are not reflected in any Summary Slides, so it is impossible to have Summary Slides without the saved design

Extra Functionality Footnotes:

  • Allows a footnote "break" at the assumed presentation end: the position of the last Summary Slide. Useful for creating a seemless Appendix section.

  • You can make use the numbers:
    • - "current slide number"
    • - "total slides number"
    • - "appendix slide number"

  • The footnotes are fully customisable

  • Each footnote object hyperlinks to the next Summary Slide when clicked during a show (useful during question time to navigate back to the Summary Slide)

Progress Bar:

  • Allows a visual representation of the progression of the slide show

  • Customisations include:
    • - Area for the images to appear
    • - The use of any images
    • - Control over the extent and direction of image overlap

  • Each progress bar object hyperlinks to the next Summary Slide when clicked during a show (useful during question time to navigate back to the Summary Slide)

Summary Slides:

  • Allows the creation of one or multiple Summary Slides in a presentation, where slides are captured as images then labelled and organised onto the Summary Slide

  • Each slide image Hyperlinks to its respective slide when clicked during a show (useful for question time)

  • Customisations include:
    • - Template for the Summary Slide
    • - Area for the images to appear
    • - Slide image borders and shape effects
    • - Slide image label fonts, positions, and backgrounds
