It appears as though the predictive interface does not work in the Slide Show screen environment.

    $\begingroup$ the fastest way is SetOptions[EvaluationNotebook[],ShowPredictiveInterface->True]. To make it permanent you need to make your own style sheet in which this is set to true in "SlideShow" environment (by default it is False) $\endgroup$ Jul 4, 2014 at 3:46
  • $\begingroup$ Thank you for your response. I do have my own style sheet but I haven't been able to figure out how to set this to true in the "Slide Show" environment. When I edit my style sheet and click on the cell "Local definition for all styles in environment Slide Show" the option ShowPredictiveInterface is not editable. $\endgroup$

If you add

Cell[StyleData[All, "SlideShow"],
 ShowPredictiveInterface->True,
  ShowCodeAssist->True]

to your slideshow stylesheet then it will give you the predictive interface -- works for me using OS X 10.9.4 and Mma 9.0.1.

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you. I've noticed a bug with the predictive interface on slides after the first one. What happens to me is that the interface for a command on slide 2 shows up at the to of slide 3. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @YequalsX I agree it looks like a bug. See my update. $\endgroup$ Jul 7, 2014 at 20:17
  • $\begingroup$ @MikeHoneychurch: I'm not able to let the suggestion bar appear in M10 and M11 using the two options as you indicated. Is there any known updates? I would arrange a presentation where I explain the Wolfram Predictive Interface and it's very annoying to switch to Working as ScreenEnvironment during a SlideShow presentation. Thanks $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @bobknight best suggestion I have is have a look at what new options may be controlling what you want to do. You can find them in the options inspector $\endgroup$ Aug 19, 2016 at 23:38
