You must right-click on the icon and use the activation option to enable the app’s features. To do this, you will need the activation that you can obtain after purchasing the application. The cost of the app is $19.95 for a single user license. Once the application is running, it automatically activates itself whenever you set a slideshow for a PowerPoint slide.

I have been looking for simple and effective tool to improve my Power Point presentation. Maybe this will be the answer. The side Icon commands should be easy to use. Hope it also can be customized on key board or mouse buttons. Wonder if the “first 30 comments” still available?


very useful and time saving !


This program would be great not only for presentations but for teaching in classrooms. I look forward to trying it out soon.
