Overview Mode

Press the »ESC« or »O« keys to toggle the overview mode on and off. While you're in this mode, you can still navigate between slides, as if you were at 1,000 feet above your presentation.

You can use the toggleOverview() API method to activate or deactivate the overview mode from JavaScript.

// Switch to the opposite of the current state

// Activate the overview mode
Reveal.toggleOverview( true );

// Deactivate the overview mode
Reveal.toggleOverview( false );


We fire events when the overview mode is activated and deactivated.

Reveal.on( 'overviewshown', event => { /* ... */ } );
Reveal.on( 'overviewhidden', event => { /* ... */ } );
