What did you do?

In the directory containing my presentation.slide:

$ present -notes

Then in my browser: pressed N to open the Presenter Notes window

What did you expect to see?

Feature request: an option to have

  • the Presenter notes at the top of the notes window
  • the slides at the bottom of the notes window

Currently (2020) many speakers around the world present from home. The camera filming the speaker is always above its physical screen, with few exceptions. Eye contact is very important to engage the audience, so for a speaker who reads notes it would be optimal to place the notes as close as possible to the webcam, at the top of the screen.

What did you see instead?

  • Slides at the top of the notes window
  • Presenter notes at the bottom of the notes window

Are there cases where notes at the bottom are the better choice? If not, maybe it doesn't even have to be an option.
