Using Multiple Timers (Mac)
If you intend to use multiple timers during your presentation, you can easily by-pass the step of opening specific timers through the main menu each time. To do this, duplicate TimerTools on your computer, then make and run copies. Rename the copy to the name of the timer you want to use. For example, if you want to use the Analog Stopwatch, name the copy "Analog Stopwatch." Repeat the process for each timer you want to demonstrate. Before you begin your presentation, open all your duplicate timers and select the timer that matches your file name on each copy. Now, when you're in PowerPoint, you can easily tab directly to the timer you want at any point during the presentation, or from one timer to another.
