How to Use a Generic Slide Projector
Generic Slide Projectors present prepared text in the text-side of enCore.† For a text-only MOO, Slide Projectors are handy tools for presenting papers or information to an audience; however, in the enCore environment they donít have as much use.† Still, you may find them useful to create a presentation that involves both text and web slides.
Instructions and Information on Specific Verbs (Commands)
Using the Encore Object Editor
You can create a generic slide projector by using the Objects button, and can edit the projector's description and multimedia content in the Editor. However, you cannot prepare the slides in the object editor.† You must prepare these bits of text through the note editor by typing commands into the command window (see what follows).

To create new slides
First, erase old slides by typing the following commands into the command window:
This command will erase the contents of the first six slides.† The slide projector comes with tutorial and explanation information preprogrammed, so it is necessary to erase all six preprogrammed slides. The slide projector contains a total of ten slides, so you will need to erase all previously programmed slides.
Next, create your new slide, following the sequence and text commands exactly as outlined below.
You can create up to ten slides, and each slide can display up to 22 lines of text. It is recommended that you prepare the text for your slides first, and then copy and paste it into enCore as you create the slides.
