    Hi there,
    I'm using my IPad pro for teaching and am a person that likes to mave around a lot. Is there a way to advance ppt slides with a remote control on my Ipad pro?
    Thanks in advance for any thoughts!

    Best,
    Hilke

    The easiest solution is if you have an iPhone. You can use Keynote to run the PowerPoint slides and keynote has a remote function where you can link the two devices together and one can control the slides running on the other. Either device can be running the slideshow while the other device controls it. I use this method all the time and it always works great for me.

    Or, some slide projectors have Bluetooth/WiFi capabilities where you can control them with an app on your iPad. I found this out AFTER I got the current projector I use. :) But, you can save or "Open In" the slideshow in the projector app (on your iPad) and then the app will control the projector to run the slideshow.

    Other than that, I've got no other ideas. Maybe someone else might...

    Good luck.
