Tap on the Einstellungen button in the top toolbar to reveal the Settings & Preferences screen.
The sidebar on the left lists several pages in three groups: Diashow-Einstellungen, Application Preferencesund Manage Purchases. The slideshow settings apply only to your current slideshow, while the application preferences apply globally to the whole app.
This screen contains the controls for Bühnenformat, Slideshow Loopsund Hintergrundfarbe.
Tap on one of the pre-defined choices for the Bühnenformat, or enter a Benutzerdefiniert format by entering something like “1:1” or “1920×1080” or “2.35”. The default format is 16:9.
Wenn Slideshow Loops is enabled, the slideshow will repeat endlessly during playback. Of course you can always interrupt playback by tapping the Stopp Taste.
Die Hintergrundfarbe is displayed behind all layers of a slide. There is only a single background color for all slides of a slideshow.
On this screen you can enter metadata information about your slideshow. You can enter the Titel, Untertitelund Beschreibung for your slideshow. You can also enter the Autor (your name), Organisation (your company), and a special Urheberrecht text.

Fixpunkt Schwenken & Zoomen anzeigen determines whether a small circle that indicated the fix point of an animation will be displayed. This fix point is essentially the point in an image that the attention of the audience will be directed to. The fix point can be dragged with the finger – in this case the animation will automatically be adjusted accordingly.
Wenn Alway Show Grid is enabled, a grid will be permanently displayed in the Bühne. When disabled the grid is only displayed while you are dragging a layer. Grid Spacing controls the size of the grid.
Wenn Snap to Grid is enabled, then layers will snap to the grid or to the Bühne edges. This usually helps to align layers when positioning them on the Bühne.
When dragging media files from a Medien-Browser to the Storyboard, you can choose one of two different behaviors:
- Stay in Media Browser if you want to continue dragging more media files to the Storyboard
- Automatically Switch to Stage if you want to immediately position the new layers in the Stage
Here you can determine which kind of animation is applied to layers that are newly added to your slideshow. These settings are also relevant when selecting the Apply Default Animation Befehl aus dem Options Popup.
First you select the desired animation speed. A slower speed almost always looks more professional.
Then select the kind of animation for each type of media file separately: Horizontale Bilder, Panorama-Bilder, Vertikale Bilder, Quadratische Bilder, Videosund Text.
When enabling Keep Completely Visible, an image with a different aspect ratio than the Bühne will never be cropped, but will be letterboxed or pillarboxed instead.
Layers can be zoomed In oder Out. Panning can be Up oder Down for vertical images, or Left oder Right for panorama images. Alternate always alternates between for first two choices, e.g. zoom in, zoom out, zoom in, zoom out, etc…
Text layers have one extra option: When Scroll Long Text is enabled this creates a rolling credits style effect for multiline text. If your text is only a single line that is wider than the Bühne, it creates a horizontally scrolling stock ticker style effect.
Wenn Fadeout Toolbars When Playback Starts is enabled the toolbars are automatically faded out shortly after playback starts. You can show the toolbars again by tapping anywhere on the screen. Tap once more to hide them again.
Wenn Automatically Fadeout Connected Screens is enabled, then any time you connect a new screen to your iPad (via cable or via AirPlay), this screen will be automatically blacked out. This is useful if you do not want your audience in the room to see what you are currently doing on your iPad before the presentation starts.
