    Navigation controls in Presenter 8

    jstevenh Level 1

      I'm not fond of the navigation controls that are automatically generated in Presenter 8. Is there some way I can edit or replace these controls with something better looking? Themes do nothing but change colors, text and position.

       

      IF I can just remove the Adobe logo in the navigation control I can live with that.

          Hi,

           

           

          You can remove the logo and add your logo by doing the following

           

          1. Create a new file named logo.swf of dimension 47 x 27 pixels that contains your branding.

          2. Go to the templates folder under the Presenter 8 installation folder

          3. Add your custom logo.swf file to the Templates folder.

          4. In PowerPoint, publish the presentation to your computer.

          5. View the output to see the new logo.

          6. this logo will appear every time you publish any presentation

           

          If you want to replace the logo in already published presentation

          1. Create a new file named logo.swf of dimension 47 x 27 pixels that contains your branding.

          2. Go to the publiahed folder >> data >> resources and paste the logo here

          3. Go to the data folder and open vconfig.xml

          4. Search for <uireplace name="logo" value=""/>

          5. make value equal to "resources/logo.swf" and save vconfig.xml

          6. Launch viewer.swf

           

          There is no way to remove the logos completely. A workaround is to add an empty swf of dimension 47 x 27 pixels.

          You cannot change the navigation controls. However you may hide the playbar completely by going to Slide Manger->Hide playbar corressponding to each slide.

           

          Hope this helps.

           

          Thanks
