Acrobat Reader Blanking key

by Wdroogen / March 27, 2007 12:43 AM PDT

I'm looking for a quick key to blank out the screen in the middle of a presentation. In Powerpoint, one can just press the B key to toggle between a blank screen and a visible slide. I'm powerpoint averse and would like to find a similar feature in Acrobat Reader. Does anyone have a solution?

Research "BOSS KEY"

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boss_key notes just the tip of the iceberg on this. You can find numerous utilities that will blank or show something else on demand but you may just need to know to look for BOSS KEY software.

I don't use such so I can't narrow the search for you.
