Description

Keybindings

The following commands are accepted:

bind <key> <func> [<arg>]

A list of all possible functions can be obtained via the -L command line option of pdfpc(1).

Options

Some permanent changes can be configured via the config file. The syntax is:

option <option_name> <option_value>

The following option_name's are recognized:

black-on-end

Add an additional black slide at the end of the presentation (bool, Default false)

current-height

Percentage of the height of the presenter screen to be used for the current slide. (int, Default 80)

Enable color hints of the timer, continuously indicating whether the presentation is progressing according to the expected pace (bool, Default true). See the timer operation description in pdfpc(1).

Examples

Key names can be obtained with the help of the xev utility. Note that names are case sensitive. Modifiers can be specified in the form <mod>+<key> where <mod> is one of S (for shift), C (for control) and A/M (for Alt/Meta). E.g.

bind S+Next    next10

A shorthand for specifying key combinations constituting shift and an alphabetic character is to simply give the uppercase version of the alphabetic character. For example, to bind <shift>+r to the 'reset' function, use

bind R reset

To always activate the black-on-end option, one could add the following to the config file

option black-on-end true
