Description olo 2004-05-18 15:12:31 UTC
Suppose that you want to organise the look of slides in your presentation (e.g.
 different sets of background image and boxes layout) by creating multiple slide
designs to choose for your slides (typically it would be 3 designs: for Title
slides, lower level sub-title slides and default design for ordinary slides).

There's currently no easy way to copy slide desings inside your presentation or
create new, blank ones.

This currently forces the user to go through a complicated and hard to discover

1. Go to Format->Styles->"Slide Design...".
2. Click the "Load..." button.
3. Choose one of pre-defined slide designs
4. Click "OK" in "Load Slide Design" dialog
5. Click "OK" in "Slide Design" dialog, applying newly loaded slide design to
current slide (otherwise the slide design will be dropped from the presentation!)
6. Switch to "Master View" (select "View"->"Master"->"Drawing") and customise a
slide design.

Proposed solution:

1. In "Slide Design" dialog, implement "New...", "Copy...", "Delete..." buttons. 

After implementing the "Delete..." button, make Impress not delete unused slide
designs from the presentation (possibly with a warning dialog for the user when
he saves a presentation with unused slide designs - "You have unused slide
designs in your presentation. Do you want to delete them?"; "Yes", "No", "Open
'Slide Design' manager").

2. When in "Master View" (select "View"->"Master"->"Drawing"), the slide tabs
area (at the bottom of the window) shows slide designs as separate tabs. With
analogy to the standard "Slide View", right clicking on those tabs should offer
"Insert Slide Design...", "Copy Slide Design...", "Delete Slide Design..." commands.
