Hi

It would be useful to have a timer reset in the presenter console.

Consider the following scenario: You set up your presentation and then have to wait before you can start (people are late, introduction etc).
Meanwhile the timer has been ticking, so it becomes unclear how long you have been speaking. 
You can reset the timer by exiting and restarting the presentation, but a reset button for the timer would be neater.

Cheers,

Thank you for reporting this enhancement request! I can confirm that this is a valid enhancement request on:

Enhancement
Low - as you said, there is a workaround, just don't start your presentation until you're actually ready to start, but a pause button or a reset button seems like it could be useful in some situations

In order to limit the confusion between ProposedEasyHack and EasyHack and to make queries much easier we are changing ProposedEasyHack to NeedsDevEval.

Thank you and apologies for the noise
