Portable Presenter has a few formatters,
which each enable someone to specify what text should appear on a slide.
All formatters share these options:
- The markup formatter
- is very close to HTML, but there are a few important differences.
- The simple formatter
- is a simplification on the markup-formatter: it is less work
to specify lists.
- The plain formatter
- is presenting data as typed in. This does not give nice visual
- -nestIndents => [ indent-spec, ... ] ,
where indent-spec is [ fontsize, indent-percent ]
- A list of indentation specifications. This specifies the size of the
font to be used on each level, relative to the level of the enclosing
level, and the amount of indentation it has to get.
The dots, which are put in front of the list-items are
decoration-dependent, so defined in the
If you change this nest description list, you have to specify the whole
list again: adding of changing single elements will have effect on
slides earlier in the presentation.
- -lineSkip => percentage
- When a line is left empty (usually at start of a paragraph), that
does not mean that it should have to be the font-height: usually less is
nicer. Relative to the height of the running font.
- -listSkip => percentage
- Extra line-height (relative to the running font) to be made above each
- -imageHSpace => percentage
- The amount of space to be left free on the left or right (which is
applicable) between the image and text when the image is aligned
left or right. Relative to the screen-width.
The bahaviour is different from HTML, where the space is always both
left and right of the image.
- -imageVSpace => percentage
- The amount of space to be left free on the top or bottom (which is
applicable). Only if there is text above or below the image.
Relative to the screen-height.
