Ticker Show
The Ticker Show feature of PowerShow enables multiple slide shows to run on a single monitor. This allows you to, for instance, set up news-style ticker presentations that run continuously at the bottom of the screen while the main presentation is going on the rest of the screen.
Following are step-by-step instructions to set this up:
  1. Creating a TickerShow Layout presentation: A TickerShow Layout presentation is the presentation that contains the layout of the slide shows for a single monitor. This presentation should contain a single slide having the Blank slide layout:
    1. Create a new presentation with a Blank slide design.
    2. Set the first slide's layout to Blank:
      Slide Layout
    3. Create two Rectangle shapes on the slide.
    4. Assuming that your main presentation is named Main.ppt and the bottom ticker presentation is named Ticker.ppt, insert text Main in the top Rectangle and Ticker in the bottom Rectangle strip. TickerShow Layout
    5. Save this TickerShow Layout presentation (lets say we give it the name Layout.ppt).
  2. Open Main.ppt, Ticker.ppt and Layout.ppt in PowerPoint.
  3. Select Slide Show tab, clear the Use Presenter View box.
  4. Select Slide Show | Ticker Show item.
  5. Select the monitor on which you want to run the two presentations.
  6. Select Layout.ppt in TickerShow Layout Presentation box.TickerShow Session Settings
  7. Click Start Show button.
This will start Main.ppt and Ticker.ppt on the same monitor.
