How do I use mmhmm with presentation slides from Google Slides / Keynote / PowerPoint?

If you're looking to use mmhmm with your preferred presentation software, you have a couple of options:


Import your deck from PowerPoint, Keynote, or as a PDF


You can import your deck to mmhmm by dragging and dropping your PowerPoint, Keynote, or PDF deck into the slide tray at the bottom of the mmhmm window. Alternatively, you can go to File > Import file and select your PowerPoint, Keynote, or PDF presentation from your hard drive. 

Your presentation will be uploaded to the mmhmm server, converted into an mmhmm presentation, and open in a new mmhmm tab. The process may take a few moments, depending on the size of your deck.

NOTE: There is a 250MB file size limit on imported files. On Mac, import is available only for macOS 10.15 (Catalina) and higher. 


Use an mmhmm screen share slide to share your PowerPoint window to mmhmm


Keynote, PowerPoint, and Google Slides have a feature called "present to window" that makes it significantly easier to share the contents of a presentation without making the toolbars and presenter notes visible to your audience. In any of these programs, first, present to a new window, then use an mmhmm screen share slide to select that new window to present. 

Here's how to do that on either platform:


Export your slides as images to bring them into mmhmm

To import slides into mmhmm from another service, you must first export your slides as images.

Once you've exported the file, unzip them, and drag the files into the mmhmm slide tray towards the bottom of the screen.



TIP: If your font did not render correctly, export your presentation as a PDF and import the file into mmhmm.
