Dear forum,

I wonder whether it is at all possible to show the "presenter console" in Impress without an external monitor?

This seems to be a very useful feature for rehearsing presentations, so I'd expected to somehow get into presenter mode without connecting an external monitor to my notebook, but so far no dice.

Version is, running on Linux.

Thanks, and best wishes.

Edit: changed "presentation mode" to "presenter console".

I guess, you mean the "Presenter Console".

Yes, use Open Expert Configuration via Tools > Options > LibreOffice > Advanced. Search for StartAlways. You should get a node org.openoffice.Office.PresenterScreen with line Presenter. Double-click that line to toggle the boolean value to true.
