Displaying Multiple Pages

Follow

Two pages at a time can be displayed in LIVE, either vertically (side by side) or horizontally (one on top of the other).  Each page shares equal space on the screen but can be scrolled or annotated independently by clicking the area of the screen you wish to be active.

Hotkeys to display multiple pages are "/" to display vertically and "\" to display horizontally. Once multi-page display is engaged, to display media in the second area, you will need to make the second area active by clicking on the space, then either manually enter the Media ID (X+ID), or selecting a media in Production and sending to LIVE.  Pressing the multipage hotkey again will go back to single-page display of whichever page is active.  

CTRL+/ will instantly display the current page and display the next page of the document to its side.  CTRL+\ will do the same, but put the next page on the bottom half of the screen.

    Coming from a TD background, I enjoyed not having to use the mouse to click in an empty area of the presentation area to activate it -- preferring to use the function keys instead. I've been unhappily clicking in the open space but was just testing and it looks like TAB will switch the focus to the other pane. It would be useful to add that to this page. [From the Live Hotkeys Reference it looks like you mention "=" does this as well, wish I had noticed that before]

    It would be great if there was a way to have the current page move to the right pane instead of the left pane. For example, I'm on page 50 and I've highlighted a few items and now the presenter wants that page with the highlights move to the right and the first page brought up on the left -- as far as I know there's no way to do that.
