Taking a look at IBM Lotus Symphony Presentations

The interface

When you launch Presentations, you'll notice that the bulk of the user interface is identical to the other two applications. By now you know that this is because the Lotus Symphony suite uses a single interface for all of its applications, and the main feature of this integrated interface is its tabs. This means that you can easily work on presentations, spreadsheets, and documents that are all related to the same project simply by selecting tabs -- you never have to leave the Lotus Symphony interface to launch separate applications, nor do you need to depend on the Windows Taskbar.

The other main user interface feature in the Lotus Symphony suite, the Sidebar, is also present in Presentations, although it contains the Page properties settings by default. However, as you work with the various components that make up a presentation, the contents of the Sidebar will change appropriately.
