    Multiple screens (Any)

    Does PowerPoint have the ability to drive multiple screen displays simultaneously? For example, I wish to set up a display using three screens, the computer driving the display will have a video card capable of supporting the three screens. In PowerPoint, am I able to send say send an image to Video 1, some text to Video 2 and something else to Viseo 3?
    I am not a PowerPoint user at the moment but if I can do what I'm trying to do, then it could be a steep learning curve! Thanks for your help. John

    In the Slide Show | Set Up Show... dialog, there is a section for Multiple Monitors. You can specify on which monitor the slide show is displayed, and you can tick a check box to show Presenter View on the other monitor. PowerPoint does not support more than two monitors, at least not in Office XP - the online help says "At this time, Microsoft PowerPoint can only run a slide show on 2 monitors: a primary (presenter's) monitor and the monitor that the audience views."
