I have made a beamer presentation for my Zoom conference. Is there a way I can share only the slides and not my notes using zoom platform? I plan to open the slides with the Dual-Screen PDF viewer.

  • Could you post an example ? I've never used beamer notes

  • Frankly this seems to be very viewer specific...

  • Not really. I think its because of how zoom works and how the dpviewer occupies immediately the screens.

When you choose to "share" in a Zoom session, you should be given an option of sharing a single window or sharing an entire screen/desktop.

Use one of the tools specified in existing questions/answers like mine, How to share a beamer PDF by teleconference (Zoom/etc) using the "show notes on second screen" option?, or this one, Is there a specialized Pdf viewer for Latex-Beamer presentations on Linux?

These can display the audience material and the presenter material separately, each in windows that can be sized and moved around. So perfect for zoom.
