Live content slides are not loading when in presentation mode


Follow these steps to troubleshoot missing live content slides during presentation mode:

  1. Ensure the Mac App is running by locating the icon in the menu bar

    If the icon is not present, run the app. For more information about opening applications, see the Apple user guide.

  2. Ensure the Mac App helper is enabled by clicking the menu bar icon and verifying the status icon is green

    If the icon is yellow, click the Enable button to re-enable the helper.

  3. Verify that you have the latest version of the app

    Due to changes in macOS 10.15 (Catalina), any 1.3.x or earlier version of the Conferences i/o Mac App will fail to display live content slides. While the App will appear to be running in the Mac status bar, you will not be able to run polls or other live content while presenting.

    You can find the latest version of our Mac App here.
