Hi all,

I come across this problem and here is what I have found so far. (Hi experts, please correct me where I'm wrong.) Maybe it will help some of you.

Settings for the Presenter Console are available in
Tools > Options > LibreOffice > Advanced > Open Expert Configuration

Click on column header 'Preference Name'. That sorts the items alphabetically.
Find the item org.openoffice.Office.PresenterScreen.

For example for using a different font in the Notes pane do this:
Expand PresenterScreen > Presenter > Themes > Theme_1 > ViewStyles > ViewStyle_2 > Font.
A double-click on an item opens an input dialog box to change the value.

I have tried e.g.
Style: Regular
FamilyName: Verdana

Size is available in the Presenter Console as + and -, no need to set it here.

Changing the Color did not work for me. But you can change the color in the registrymodifications.xcu file, see below.

The settings for the Presenter Console are not in a special configuration file but in the registrymodifications.xcu file.
With above manipulations you get these entries there:

<item oor:path="/org.openoffice.Office.PresenterScreen/Presenter/Themes/org.openoffice.Office.PresenterScreen:PresenterTheme['Theme_1']/ViewStyles/org.openoffice.Office.PresenterScreen:ViewStyle['ViewStyle_2']/Font"><prop oor:name="FamilyName" oor:op="fuse"><value>Verdana</value></prop></item>

<item oor:path="/org.openoffice.Office.PresenterScreen/Presenter/Themes/org.openoffice.Office.PresenterScreen:PresenterTheme['Theme_1']/ViewStyles/org.openoffice.Office.PresenterScreen:ViewStyle['ViewStyle_2']/Font"><prop oor:name="Style" oor:op="fuse"><value>Regular</value></prop></item>

To set the font color for the Notes pane to White, you can add this item:
<item oor:path="/org.openoffice.Office.PresenterScreen/Presenter/Themes/org.openoffice.Office.PresenterScreen:PresenterTheme['Theme_1']/ViewStyles/org.openoffice.Office.PresenterScreen:ViewStyle['ViewStyle_2']/Font"><prop oor:name="Color" oor:op="fuse"><value>FFFFFF</value></prop></item>

Do not forget to make a backup of the registrymodifications.xcu file before you edit it!

The description of the properties is in The default values for the properties are in

Kind regards
