Troubleshooting Bluetooth Pedal Connections

If you have paired your bluetooth pedal to your iPad, but are finding it difficult to turn the pages, it may be because your pedal is on the wrong "Mode" or "Profile". Be sure to check your pedal's documentation on how to change the mode in order for your pedal to be able to control slides in Projector. You can also verify by tapping "Pedal & Keyboard Input" and follow the instructions shown above.
