       pyntor - modular slides viewer and presentation tool


       pyntor [OPTIONS] presentation-file|presentation-archive


       Pyntor  is  a  presentation  tool  which can display slides and effects of various formats
       thanks to its collection of components which are loaded as specified in the  presentation-
       file,  commonly  called  script.   Components can either affect the rendering or the input
       handling, or both.  They  are  documented  in  detail  in  components.txt  in  the  pyntor
       documentation  directory,  while  this manual page tries to only briefly document the user
       interface to the program on the command line and some keyboard shortcuts to be used  while
       the pyntor is running.

       Since  presentations are normally distributed as presentation-archive files, usually named
       *.pyntor, those too are accepted as parameters to pyntor.  To learn about the creation  of
       presentations and archives, see below for some references.


       -c, --components
              Creates and outputs a formatted list of slides, tracking the components in use like
              in a real presentation. Additionally, all components are checked for  presence  and
              usability.  This  option  is  mainly  useful for debugging, but also to get a quick
              overview of a presentation.

       -d, --direct=scriptline
              IF a presentation only uses a single component, no  script  needs  to  be  created.
              Instead,  the  component  invocation  line which would normally be written into the
              script can be passed directly on the command line.

       -x, --export=file.pdf|htmldir
              Exports a presentation to a (fixed-size) PDF file, if the option argument suffix is
              .pdf,  or  otherwise  to  a  directory  of  PNG  images and a simple HTML file with
              thumbnail preview images.

       -w, --windowed
              When running the presentation, do not switch to fullscreen, but  run  in  a  window
              instead. This option is also mainly useful for debugging.

       -v, --version
              Displays the version number of Pyntor.

       -h, --help
              Displays  a  summary  of  all  available  command  line options.  This option works
              without providing a script.

       -u, --usage
              Displays common usage scenarios so that the desired effect can be achieved quickly.
              The  examples are for running a presentation and debugging one, respectively.  This
              option works without providing a script.


       The following keyboard shortcuts are supported  globally  throughout  Pyntor.   Note  that
       individual  components  can make use of additional shortcuts, please consult the component
       documentation about this.

       F      Toggle between fullscreen mode and windowed mode for displaying slides.

       P      Pyntor menu to allow jumping to arbitrary slides of the presentation.

       S      Pyntor menu to allow type-as-you-find fulltext search, followed by slide jumping as
              with  P.   This is useful for the situation of having people reminded of some slide
              without knowing the page number after a talk.

       T      Gadget displaying the clock time and already spent presentation time in  the  lower
              right  corner  of  the  screen.  Consecutive presses of the T key will increase the
              brightness of the gadget, but usually the indicator is for the  presenter  and  not
              for the audience.
