When you turn on Presenter View, the Main/Stage Display Toggle on the bottom of the app goes away. I'd really like to be able to toggle back and forth while staying in presenter view.

Hey Tim,

I see what you mean with how the Display Main/Stage goes away. Can you give me an example of why you would want to flip over to the Stage Display during Presenter View? This is really only used to flip over to make edits to the Stage.

Let me know how you would use it so I can pass it on to our team and let them know.

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you.

So we use our stage view with a greenscreen background to create a chroma-key overlay for our live stream. As a result, we sometimes have to have slightly different information on the stage display than we do on the main. Not to mention different formating; in house lyric slides are center screen, white on black, while live stream overlap are bottom half of a green screen, overlayed on the video of the Praise team.

In addition, we sometimes have to jump around (in particular, to chroma-key slide blanks), so during the service, we run in presenter view and double-click when we have to go out of order, but to identify the slide we have to fire we may need to be viewing either main or stage.

Additionally, and just as important, when in presenter view there is no ability to make adjustments to layers that are on the stage display but not on the main display. For example, we frequently put timers on the stage display but not the main - when in presenter view we have no way of turning those timers on or off. This would be the same for messages, etc. Most of our volunteers are not as technically inclined and would prefer to set-up the various service elements and then use presenter view during the service itself (less opportunity to make errors) but simple things like turning on or turning off some reminder/timer/etc. does not add a great deal more complexity for them if it is set up ahead of time.
