Description fkater 2004-05-29 10:43:23 UTC

at least when you print and have *transparent* objects you get a warning. But
there seems to be no way to locate them. Select all (Ctrl-A) doesn't help since
you receive just one big selection of everything. Further: Selecting suspicious
areas by a selction square does only help if you really have nothing else but
the transparent object in there (otherwise the visible object is selected).

So, if you concider also the other problem you normally have with selection
(when some small object is behind another one) what do you think about this:

Having a navigator listing all objects on a slide. So you could activate/select
(even modify) them by clicking to (or browsing trough) this list of objects.

This would be a significant feature. I've seen something similar with corel
draw. But it seems to be a quite huge effort (?)
