Settings Menu

The Settings menu allows you to customize KPresenter.

Settings -> Toolbars

The items in this submenu can be toggled, that is, you can both enable and disable the display of specific toolbars here.

Settings -> Configure Autocorrection...

Autocorrection is KPresenter's ability to correct common typing errors or expand abbreviations independently of the spell checking function. There are several common typing errors entered for you by default such as replacing teh with the and you can add as many more as you like.

The ability to expand abbreviations can save you a lot of typing time, if you often repeat text whether in the same presentation or in multiple presentations.

For instance, if you work for “Company with a really really long name Inc.” then you might define an autocorrection entry so that whenever you type myJob or some other piece of unique text, it will be replaced with “Company with a really really long name Inc.”.

Autocorrection can be applied automatically as you type, or only on demand when you choose it from the Text menu.

Please see the Configure Autocorrection section for a complete explanation.

Settings -> Configure Completion...

Autocompletion allows you to type the first few letters of a commonly used word (often technical or job specific), and tells KPresenter to finish typing the word for you.

Please see the Configure Completion section for a complete explanation.

Settings -> Configure Shortcuts...

Configure Shortcuts allows you to assign a keyboard shortcut to actions that KPresenter menus or icons contain.

Customizing the shortcuts

If you try to assign a shortcut that is already used, it will give you a warning message. Highlight what you want to do (in the picture, I have chosen to make a keyboard shortcut to About KDE ).

Click the radio button to the Custom key setting and type the key you want to use. I assigned Control key and Y to bring up the “About KDE” dialog box.

The button shows what has been assigned. Click OK to make the changes, click Default to restore whatever was assigned as default, click Cancel to do nothing and leave the dialog.

Settings -> Configure Toolbars...

Configure Toolbars allows you to add or delete icons on each of the toolbars.

Configuring KPresenter toolbars

At the top is a drop down box to enable you to choose which toolbar you want to modify. In the picture the Format toolbar is selected. If I want to add the Spelling icon to that toolbar, I click the entry in the left window. The arrow pointing right becomes available, if I click the arrow the Spelling entry is added to the selected toolbar. The left arrow is available when you click in the right side window. It allows you to remove an icon from a toolbar. The up and down arrows become active when an item on the wright side is selected. You can also move the highlight in the right side window up and down with the keyboard arrow keys. By clicking on the arrows with the mouse you can change the order of the entries in the menu.

Settings -> Configure KPresenter...

See the configure KPresenter section for a complete explanation of all KPresenter settings.
