This is fantastic. Offered a really simplified way for volunteers at my church to run the livestream. However, normal key commands for powerpoint no longer work.

We have been using this PowerPoint macro in conjunction with the OBS script "Control Visca-over-IP based cameras" 2.1 for approximately 2 yrs. with great success. When using presenter mode, we only need to double click one time at the beginning to advance the slides. Thereafter we use the keyboard arrows. I don't know if you are aware that PowerPoint macros turn off the numeric keypad. Therefore any keyboard hotkeys which were setup using the keypad will not work. There is a VB code to turn the numeric keypad back on, but I was never able to make it work when I attempted to add it into the macro. We simply only use the keyboard numbers.
