I search and find only how to make an interactive presentation partly non-interactive. I'm sure it's right under my nose somewhere...

Interactivity is based on the Gadgets that are used. There are several Gadgets, such as the Spreadsheet Gadget, that are interactive and respond to screen touches/mouse clicks, while others, such as the Clock Gadget, are not. You should also ensure that the Mouse Pointer is not hidden in the Presentation Settings (gear icon in the upper right corner while in the Editor). Hiding the Mouse Pointer prevents any interaction with the Presentation.
Yup, that worked! Now, just need to find out how to make a direct link to an image file in google docs (hope there is a way!).

Not sure if this is a similar question, but....

I want to have a presentation with the screen split into placeholders. I would like each half to have the capability to be turned on/off by touching the screen on that side.  The idea being that the left side, for example, could be displaying a static graphic while the right side is looping through its playlist. Then the user could touch the screen on the right side and send that loop to a standby graphic, and also touch the left side of the screen and start a looping presentation or whatever we have in the left-side placeholder.

I hope this makes sense.

Hi Jeff,

I believe the information you'll be looking for is contained here. It goes over having to build a Multi-Page Presentation which sounds like is what you want.

Please let us know if you need anything further.

Hello, I followed the linked "here" and it took me to a 404 page. Does this info still exist?
