When you want to see how well your narrations are synced with your presentation, you will need a full preview of your presentation with all animations and transitions.

To preview a presentation with all transitions and animations enabled:

  • Click the Preview with animations button on the toolbar.

Narration Editor will open the Preview panel, and your presentation will start playing from the beginning of the selected slide.

The Start Preview button will be replaced with Next Slide/Next Animation/Skip Transition buttons depending on the coming element in your presentation.

If you stopped previewing a presentation, you can do the following on the timeline without leaving the Preview mode:
