are there any available styles geared toward slide presentation preparation?
Well, there are no special styles, but you can create your own styles (character styles and paragraph styles).
are there any provisions within TextMaker to facilitate giving slide presentations (i.e. something like a SlideShow mode)?
You can use the Page Preview
to show the audience your document.
if not, are there reasonable workarounds (i.e. convert to PDF and use an Acrobat viewer in presentation mode) or am I just barking up the wrong tree?
To create a PDF file out of TextMaker you can use the PDFCreator
. Search the internet for this software and print
a PDF out of your documents.
