These options give you control over how Presenter layouts your content on the slides.

Titles on separate slides

If activated, every title (H1-H6) will stand on a slide on its own.

Scale headlines to fit on slide

Sometimes, in rare cases, headlines can be really long. If this option is activated, Presenter calculates if the headline is too long and reduces its font size until it fits.

Equalize font size in footer and header

If deactivated, Presenter calculates the font sizes for each header & footer cell on its own - if the content is too big, it is shrinked until it fits. This can lead to different font sizes in the header/footer cells, which can look untidy.

If you activate this option, the smallest font size for any cell is used for all cells, resulting in a more tidy layout.

Respect column layout

If activated, Presenter will preserve multi-column layouts in the content. If deactivated, Presenter will “flatten” the layouts, as if the columns were placed underneath each other. See How Presenter works for more details.

Please note that some Presenter features do not work in multi-column layouts, most notably the macros for background images and slide breaks.

We strongly advice against using the “Respect column layout” option - it tends to make the presentations look more cluttered and produces untidy page breaks. If you do not have very strong reasons to turn it on, leave it off.

Center slides vertically

If activated, the content of slides will be vertically centered. If not activated, the content will start at the top.

On slides with title, fix title on top and center content

If you activate “Center slides vertically” alone, titles on slides will be centered along with the content. This can look a little strange. If you activate this option as well, the title will be glued to the top of the slide and only the content will be vertically centered in the remaining slide space.

Use widescreen 16:9 for slide content

The slide space used to layout the content is not the WHOLE slide - it would look strange if text lines would be as long as the screen allows.

Usually, Presenter uses a 4:3 content box in the center of the slide for the content. If you activate this option, it will use a 16:9 content box, resulting in wider content. More content will fit on each slide, but the text lines will be unusually long for a presentation.

We advice against using 16:9 as it results in overly long text lines. Only activate this option if you have strong reasons to do so.

One strong reason is having Jira-heavy presentations that need extra table and roadmap space. Consider creating a separate theme with 16:9 for such special use cases.
