I know this is similar to other questions, but not quite. I'm used to Windows and now I have a MacBookPro at school. In Windows I can show a slide from a presentation while working on another application on my laptop. I know it interferes with the slideshow, but I really just want to show that one slide to my class. I can do that with Windows, however, on the MacBookPro I use at school, after clicking off mirroring and going to the slideshow I immediately get the presenter's view so I can't do anything else but the presentation. I am clicking on View Slideshow not clicking on View Presenter's Tools. The screen has the slide and my desktop switches to presenter's view. Am I missing something or will my Mac not allow anything else but the presentation to work at the same time? As I said, I went to settings > display and turned off mirroring.
