Creating a Custom Presentation

When creating a Terminal Viewer or EXTRA! X-treme configuration, you can create a default presentation, which contains just that configured client and nothing more. Using Presentation Integrator, you can add content and modify the appearance and behavior of the presentation. To do this, you can either start with a blank presentation and add configured clients (and other resources), or download (open) a default presentation published to MCS.

Note If you have multiple copies of MCS installed (known as a "server cluster"), you must specify the primary MCS server when setting up Presentation Integrator to access or publish presentations on MCS. To determine which is the primary server, under Related Topics, see Changing Server Priority.
