It means that the USB receiver of the simple function presenter is connected and can be used normally. as shown in Figure 8:
We usually call the wireless presenter without the air mouse function, such as the wireless presenter with only page turning function, supporting volume control and hyperlink function, as simple function presenter. We call the wireless presenter with air mouse function as air mouse presenter.
4.4 Multiple receivers
The software supports multiple receivers at the same time, but some conflicting functions will be temporarily suspended. as shown in Figure 9:

Long press the pointer key, the corresponding pointer effect will appear on the screen, double-click the pointer key to switch between different pointer effects.
Every pointer effect can be turned on or off. By default, the digital laser, spotlight and magnifier are turned on, and the customized icon is turned off. The air mouse depends on different wireless presenters. For example, the mouse function is turned on by default for N95 spotlight; The mouse function is turned off by default for the N99L spotlight, because its hardware has a mouse switch.
The user can modify these settings. After the USB receiver is inserted next time, the switch of each mode is subject to the user's settings.

5.8 Feature tour
When installing the software for the first time, the feature tour will automatically pop for the spotlight's wireless presenter. This function will guide users to operate the keys of the wireless presenter step by step and demonstrate the functions of the wireless presenter, as shown in Figure 18:
The short press and long press functions of each key of wireless presenter correspond to the key values on the computer keyboard. The key customization is to customize the short press and long press functions of the wireless presenter to the key values of other keys on the keyboard, as shown in Figure 19:
When the wireless presenter is made in the factory, the wireless presenter model is stored in the USB receiver. The Norwii Presenter software can automatically recognize and display it in the wireless presenter model box. Users generally do not need to manually change the model of the wireless presenter, otherwise it will cause some functions not work properly.
The USB receiver purchased separately by the user does not save the wireless presenter model. When the software detects this kind of USB receiver, a dialog box will pop up to let the user select the wireless presenter model. The user only needs to select the model’s name that matches the model printed on the wireless presenter, as shown in Figure 20:
In the dialog box that pops up, if the USB receiver supports simple functions, only the simple function models are displayed. If the USB receiver supports the air mouse function, only the models that support the air mouse are displayed. The USB receiver inserted in Fig. 21 supports simple functions, and only shows the models of presenters that support simple functions.
6.2 Key of presenter
The keys of the wireless presenter are the object for users to customize their functions. Only the keys that can be customized will be displayed in the drop-down box of the wireless presenter key. For wireless presenters that support simple functions, the keys that can be customized include page up, page down, volume up, volume down, Tab, Enter, etc. For wireless presenters that support air mouse functions, the keys that can be customized only include the page up and page down keys.
6.3 Short Press Function and Default
Click the input box below the short press function in the figure, and the user can press the key or combination key on the keyboard to set it as the key value of the short press function. Special keys such as playback control and volume control can be directly selected by clicking the special buttons.
If the user wants to restore the default setting, click the Default button to restore the default value, as shown in Figure 22:
6.4 Long Press Function and Default
The setting of the long press function is basically as same as the short press.
“Keep sending key when long press" is a switch, as shown in Figure 15
When the switch is turned on, if the key is pressed for a long time without releasing, the wireless presenter will continuously send the key value to the computer. This is useful for special keys such as volume control. If you set the page up key to increase the volume, and long press the page up key without releasing it, you certainly want the volume to continue to increase to the maximum, rather than to increase only once.
When the switch is off, the wireless presenter only sends the key value to the computer once when the key is pressed for a long time without releasing it. If you set the long press of a button to B, and turn off this switch, when PowerPoint is playing in full screen, when you press and send B to the computer when you press and hold, PowerPoint will enter a black screen. Of course, this key value had better send only once.
6.5 Save and All Defaults
Click the All Default button to restore the default values of all keys.
All settings can only be saved and effective after clicking the Save button, as shown in Figure 23.
Each wireless presenter has been allocated a unique code when it is made in the factory. The pairing operation is to let the USB receiver save the wireless presenter's unique code in the USB receiver’s flash memory, and then the USB receiver can respond to the wireless presenter's wireless signal. If the user loses the USB receiver, he can buy a new USB receiver and continue to use the wireless presenter after pairing.
Step 1, plug the USB receiver into the computer’s USB port first.
Step 2, click the Pair button of the Norwii Presenter.
Step 3, Keep the distance between the wireless presenter and the USB receiver within 20cm, and turn on the power of the wireless presenter. If the wireless presenter is already on, please turn it off, then turn it on. When the wireless presenter is power on, it will send pairing signal.
Step 4, press the page up/down key of the wireless presenter.
Step 5, if the Pair operation is successful, data will be shown in the right box, as shown in Figure 24:
If you have more wireless presenters, repeat step 2-5, you can save up to 6 wireless presenters’ unique code into one USB receiver. This means one USB receiver can controlled by up to 6 wireless presenters.
7.2 Clear pair
The Clear pair operation is to clear the unique codes of one or more wireless presenters stored in the current USB receiver.
For simple function presenters, the USB receiver can save up to 6 unique codes of wireless presenters. As long as the Pair operation is carried out 6 times, the USB receiver can save up to 6 unique codes of 6 wireless presenters, so as to be controlled by these 6 wireless presenters at the same time. The Clear Pair operation is to clear all the unique codes of one or more wireless presenters stored in the current USB receiver at once. After clearing, this USB receiver no longer has any unique code of wireless presenter, so it is no longer controlled by any wireless presenter.
For air mouse function wireless presenter, because it is two-way communication, the USB receiver will only save one unique code of the wireless presenter. Each Pair operation will overwrite the previous unique code.
If the user performs the clear pairing operation, this USB receiver will not save any unique code. The next time you plug it in the computer's USB port, the USB receiver will automatically enter the pairing state. At this time, you don't need to open the Norwii Presenter software. Just keep the distance between the wireless presenter and the USB receiver within 20cm, turn on the power of the air mouse wireless presenter, and then press the page up/down keys, you can pair successfully.
