Presentation 'View' settings

Note that the filtering of content, i.e. whether participants see all or just a subset of contributions, is controlled in the 'Anonymity' tab as the available options depend on the chosen anonymity mode. 

The 'View' settings tab of the Discussion workspace currently offers two options:

1 Comment numbers

Presentation offers three numbering schemes for comments: Chronological, hierarchical and 'no numbering'.

Slides are always numbered by their position.

1.1 Chronological numbering (Default)

With chronological numbering comments are numbered consecutively when they are created.

Comments keep their numbers when they are moved about ('re-referenced') by drag and drop. Deletions leave gaps in the sequence of numbers. Persistent numbering makes it easy to reference comments by their number simply because they do not change.

Renumbering. After a lot of moving about and many deletions, numbering can look messy. Click RENUMBER NOW to assign numbers as if comments had been created in their current order.

1.2 Hierarchical numbering

Hierarchical numbering assigns numbers according to the position of the relevant item (including slides) in the hierarchy. For example

1.       First slide
1.1     First comment on first slide
1.1.1  First response to first comment on first slide

and so on.

Since numbers are defined by position, they change whenever an item is moved, inserted or deleted. Consequently there is no explicit renumbering and items of other workspaces cannot keep their number on paste.

1.3 No numbering

Numbers are assigned chronologically but remain hidden.
