In this article, you'll learn how to hold an interactive presentation (with click elements) using a mouse, interactive presenter, or touch device.
Links to slides
You can link the areas of your slides to other slides or overlays (if they allow it according to the template). You can find more information in the article Create and link overlays.
Now you don't have to insert linked slides separately into your presentation anymore. As soon as you click on an area with a link to a slide, it will be inserted automatically and is therefore included in the session. If you navigate forwards or backwards in the presentation, you will notice that the slide is at the point where you opened it via a link. Your original presentation will not be changed.
You can also link a slide as an overlay. Click on the link symbol and then on the overlay symbol. Now you can select overlays as well as slides, which are automatically provided with a close button. You can find out more here: Create & link overlays
Linked overlays are also not included in a presentation. You can open them by clicking on the linked area if required.
Overlays opened during the presentation will also be inserted into the following session.
An overlay can also contain links to other slides. You can use this to create a menu that allows you to switch between all points of your presentation at any time.
More linking options
In addition to the options described above for linking to specific Slides and Overlays, you have many more options for making your Slides interactive. You can set different links on sections containing images, text or media galleries:
- link to the start page of the current presentation
- link to the next/previous Slide (suitable for linear presentations that should be operated without keyboard or swipe gestures)
- link to a specific position in a presentation (e.g. to the third slide of the current presentation)
- link to a slide, presentation (the whole presentation will be inserted at this position) or overlay
- link to a language (for interactive language switches without leaving the presentation or opening the enter menu)
- link to an external website (can be disabled via kiosk mode but specifically for fairs or similar)

If you want to open content that you did not link to in your the presentation, you can do so using the Enter menu. For more information, see the article What is the enter menu?
