View Menu

View -> New View

Opens another window with the same presentation loaded so you can work on more than one slide at a time.

View -> Close All Views ( Ctrl + Shift + W )

Close all views on the presentation. You will be given a chance to save any changes, or to cancel closing.

View -> Split View

Splits the window into two (or more) views on the same presentation. The default split is horizontal.

View -> Remove View

Close only the currently active view. The presentation, and any other views you have open, remain open, and any changes you have made remain unsaved.

View -> Splitter Orientation

Toggle the split view between Horizontal (the default) and Vertical .

View -> Show Sidebar

Toggle the display of the sidebar where you can see an overview of all the slides in your presentation.

View -> Show Notebar

Toggle the display of the notebar where you can see an overview of all the notes in your presentation.

View -> Slide Master

Toggle the display of the slide master where you can put objects that you want to appear on each slide in your presentation.

View -> Formatting Characters

Show a visual representation of “non-printing characters”, such as tabs and paragraph markers. This can be a useful aid to precisely positioning text.

This item can be toggled. If enabled, formatting characters are visible; if disabled, they are not.

View -> Guide Lines

When working in KPresenter you can drag a “guide line” from either the horizontal or vertical ruler onto your document. This guide-line will not print or display in the finished presentation, it is simply to help you align objects on screen. If this item is enabled, these guide lines will be visible. If this is disabled, they will not be visible.

Guide lines work across slides, allowing you to align objects the same way across multiple slides.

Disabling (hiding) guide lines does not delete them. If you have created guide lines, and then disabled this item, enabling it again will retain the guide lines you created.

View -> Add Guide Line...

Opens a dialog to select the Orientation ( Horizontal or Vertical ) and choose a Position:

View -> Show/Hide Grid

If enabled, KPresenter will display a grid of dots representing the intersections of imaginary horizontal and vertical lines. You can use these dots to precisely position objects on the slide.

View -> Snap to Grid

If this is enabled, when dropping or moving objects on the slide the top left corner of the object will “snap” or move, to the nearest grid point.

This does reduce your freedom to freely position objects on the slide, however it also helps to line up objects precisely. It is easily disabled or enabled with this menu entry, allowing you the best of both worlds.

View -> Zoom

This submenu allows you to zoom in or out of the slide. Several predefined zoom levels are available, including Whole Slide to scale the entire slide so as to be visible in the size window you have open, and Width to scale the slide so it fills the entire width of the window, although you may now have to scroll vertically. There are also several other scaling choices, from 33% up to 500% .
