Re: Clicking on control panels kick me out of Keynote presentation

Hi @SLJ,

There are some known limitations when using Keynote simultaneously with screen capture programs.  Try these directions to increase compatibility: 

 

  1. Launch Keynote and select Preferences from the Keynote menu
  2. Select the Slideshow icon on the Slideshow Preferences dialog
  3. turn on the option titled 'Allow Expose, Dashboard, and others to use screen'

Re: Clicking on control panels kick me out of Keynote presentation

Yep,  you're right.  Mission Control  off  / Mission Control on, it still kicks you out

when you move the GoToMeeting Floating Control Panel

It's a bug they need to fix. 

 

I've found Mission Control does help when I click on the GoToMeeting Control Panel itself.

(the chat button, turn my camera on and off, unmute someone)

But if I need to move the Control Panel, as I often do, boom I'm kicked out of full screen.

 

Here's what works for me in the meantime:

Instead of clicking the play button in Keynote as I have done for years,

Keynote now has a feature where you can play a slideshow in a window.

It almost looks the same.  You get the Keynote menu bar on top

and the Mac Dock, but it plays the slideshow and any animations.

 

(I suppose you could hide the dock and that would take care of that).

 

And it  doesn't kick you out when you click on or move the floating GoToMeeting control panel

or click on the control panel itself.

 

Go to the Play menu and choose Play Slideshow in Window.

I'm running Keynote 10.1 in Mojave (10.14.6)

 

Hope this helps ...

Control Panel Clicked on Kicks Me out of Keynote Presentation

On a Mac- Catalina: When the control panel is clicked on to move out of the way of the screen during a screen share of a Keynote, it kicks me out of Keynote/my presentation. I am using two screens as well: One for my slides and one for presenter notes. 

 

So, far the only work around is: Launch the presentation in the application window, but then I can not see my presenter notes, or make sure to not click on/move the control panel out of the way.

Re: Control Panel Clicked on Kicks Me out of Keynote Presentation

@natdot  Unfortunately this is the natural behavior of Keynote on Mac OS when in full-screen presentation mode. 

 

Have you already checked this setting inside of Keynote? 

  1. Click Preferences
  2. Click Slideshow
  3. Select Allow Mission Control, Dashboard and others to use the screen
  4. Restart screen sharing
