I can't find a list of keyboard shortcuts for Evince. I checked Gnome wiki and askubuntu.

Does anybody happen to know the shortcut for presentation mode or can point me to a list of shortcuts?

F5 for presentation. F11 for fullscreen. The shortcuts are next to the items in the GUI menu for my Evince version (3.18.2).

    Update Feb 2019: can't confirm this for neither in Debian's stable (3.22.1-3+deb9u1) nor testing (3.30.2-3)..

Another option would be to start evince in presentation mode automatically from the command line:

$ evince -s file.pdf

man evince says:

-s, --presentation

   Run evince in presentation mode.
