Presentation Mode enables users to present a selected diagram or sequence of diagrams in Full Screen mode without showing the status bar, diagram palette, Model Browser, toolbars, and main menu. Additionally, it helps prevent unintended changes that may occur during a presentation. 

Presentation Mode workflow

  1. Using the Content Diagram Wizard, generate the content of diagrams used in the project. 
  2. Using the special Presentation Flow relationship, create a sequence of the selected diagrams on the diagram pane.       
  3. Enter the Presentation Mode to present the chosen diagrams.

  4. Exit the Presentation Mode when you are done.
