  2. 2. Program Tips  INTERACTIVE MAPS: When run in the “presentation” mode, this map set is interactive. That is, the index is hotlinked to the maps. This allows you to simply click on a map in the index & instantly jump to that map set. To go into interactive presentation mode simply click on the presentations icon at the bottom left hand corner of the screen or pick “Slide Show/Play” from the menu bar. Click on “INDEX” to return.  FAST KEYS: On the keyboard the “Home” key takes you to the first slide, the “End” key goes to last slide, “PgUp” & “PgDn” keys take you forward & backward one slide at a time. To switch to another program hold down the “alt” key & press “tab”.  EDITING MODE: If you want to copy images into your own slide presentations then simply click on the image that you want and then cut and paste it into your own presentation. There is no fee for this use. A few rules do apply. See the last slide for requirements. More Tips If while running in the interactive mode you got to this slide by accident press the “PgUp” key or click here to go back to the index : INDEX
  3. 3. More Tips and Tricks • 1. FONT SIZE: This program is designed for video projection and uses large fonts for maximum visibility. Prior to using in your class or sermon, try viewing the slides from the most distant seat in your room to make sure that the image is large enough to read the text. • 2. EDITING: To make it easy for you to copy these maps into your own presentations the map graphics and text are “grouped”. If you want to make significant changes to the map then click on “Draw” and chose the “ungroup” feature to allow full editing capability. • 3. INFORMATION: There is considerable map background information in the “Notes” mode of this presentation. Simply click on the icon or click “View/Notes Page” from the menu above. • 4. IMPORTING: These maps can be imported into some other software packages such as Corel Presentations. Be aware that some formatting will be lost and images will need to be edited and corrected after importing. INDEX
