    When we share our screen in a webmeeting we aren't able to see the webcams of the participants.
    It would be great to have the possibility to see them while having a presentation.

    This should already be available. During a presentation, participant frames appear on the bottom left of the application window.

    I've just did a fast test.
    I did share a Window (for example PDF file), but we don't see any webcams of the participants.

    I just ran this on my computer. Here's the result.
    What are you doing differently?

    Hi,

    In screen sharing mode it doesn't work, but I've just noticed that when you Share a PDF (or use the Whiteboard feature it does work).

    Thanks a lot :)!

    Best regards,

    Willem

    Hi LeonidasG,

    That will only work for PDF files. What about Powerpoint files?

    Best regards,

    Willem

    Hi Willuxbe,

    The PDF sharing and Screen Sharing modes both share the same layout. This should work with both modes.
    See below.

    Also about your second enquiry, only PDF files are supported. For pps files support, please feel free to open a new thread in the Ideas section and it will be considered.
