Among the functions that you can do and that are not so well known, we are going to tell you a few so that you can start using them as soon as possible and you can have the best experience with Apple’s test processor. Among them stand out:

  • Presenter mode on iPad or iPhone: In a word processing document, you can use presenter mode to have the text scroll automatically, like a teleprompter. Text is displayed in a large font on a dark background (no images or other content) so it’s easy to read. Note that only body text is displayed in presenter mode. Text in text boxes, shapes, captions, tables, headers, and other objects is not displayed. To activate it, you must follow these steps:
    1. Tap at the top of the screen, then tap Presenter Mode.
    2. Do one of the following:
      • scroll manually: swipe up.
      • scroll automatically: tap and turn on Auto Scroll. To adjust the scrolling speed, drag the slider. Tap the document to start scrolling, and tap again to pause.
    3. To change other display settings, such as background color, font size, and line spacing, select the two letters that appear.
    4. To return to the document, tap OK.pages on mac
