Presentation mode

Using presentation mode

You can present any Paper doc in full screen using presentation mode. To enter presentation mode, follow these steps:

  1. Click the icon in the doc you're viewing.
  2. Click Present.

Your doc opens in presentation mode in a new browser tab.

Controlling your presentation

While in presentation mode, you can navigate your presentation with the arrow keys on the keyboard. To make your presentation full-screen, click on the full-screen icon.

Paper automatically breaks up your doc into slides.

If you'd like to choose where your slidebreaks are, you can add a horizonal rule:

  • Type --- and press enter

For example, if you have a bulleted list, it may all appear on one slide:

  • Bullet 1
  • Bullet 2
  • Bullet 3
  • Bullet 4
  • Bullet 5
  • Bullet 6

You can add a horizontal rule to make sure that your bullets are on two slides:

  • Bullet 1
  • Bullet 2
  • Bullet 3

  • Bullet 4
  • Bullet 5
  • Bullet 6
