Description Tobias Burnus 2016-02-01 14:08:29 UTC
I have a dual screen system; in presentation mode, one shows full-screen the presentation, the other shows the presenter's view with current/next slide, notes etc.

Right click in the audience's view and choose "Mouse pointer as pen" - that changes its shape from an arrow into a pen. Move then the mouse to the presenter's view. When over the current slide, it has the pen shape. Click now draw something and release.

Result: No drawing is visible.

If one now moves the mouse pointer over to the audience's screen, the previous drawing instantly is shown on both screens.

Expected: The drawing appears instantly while one draws on the current slide on the presenter's screen.

Tobias describes exactly what I am seeing on Mac OS X 9.5 with second monitor.

Testing with and on 32-bit Windows.

1. Mouse as Pen menu only shows up on the audience screen
   Right click on the presenter's view doesn't work.

2. Mouse pointer in pen shape, but drawing on the audience screen
   does nothing.  (Seems to get completely ignored.)

3. Mouse pointer on the presenter's screen - likewise, drawing doesn't seem to
   show up anywhere, but when one moves the pointer to the audience screen,
   this drawing now appears on both screens, audience and presenter.

I vaguely recall that (2) did work before, but I might be mistaken.

With 7 (32bit):

* Right click only works on the audience's view

* Drawing (mouse: click, move, release) on the audience's screen doesn't do anything

* Drawing (click, move, release) on the presenter's screen does not show anything on either screen, but when the mouse pointer moves (after finishing drawing) to the audience's screen, the drawn line appears on both screens.
