During the slide show, we can use the pen tool to mark on the slide. But this marking remains on the screen. There is no provision to clear it off, or selectively erase it. Provide an "Eraser" tool for this purpose. * When moved like a pen, it should erase the pen marks under it. >> Provide a control to change the size of the eraser tool (just like brush size in GIMP/Photoshop) * When the user draws a lasso with this tool, all pen marks inside the rectangle should be erased.

I agree that is is an issue. The pen tool in Microsoft PowerPoint has an eraser when in slide show mode that is accessible by right clicking on the slides. There is also an clear all button in the right click menu that allows the user to clear the entire slide. These features should also be available in OpenOffice. I was able to confirm this issue still exists(since this bug was posted over two years ago) on OpenOffice 3.0.0m4 Build 9347 on Windows XP SP2 (32bit) Steps to recreate: * Create a new Impress presentation. * Under "Slide Show", click on "Slide Show Settings". * Check the box, "Mouse pointer as a pen" and press Ok. * Start the slide show. * Draw on the slide using the pen tool. * Note that there is no way to erase the pen without changing slides.

We're a team of students from the Ecole Centrale de Nantes working on this issue right now, we're currently writing the specification process if you have some test case to submit.

A cws has been created "eraser01" and a patch has been commited with the possibilities to erase all ink on a slide and use an eraser mode

This issue intends an eraser tool with that the user can erase parts of the drawn pen marks. Actual one can erase only _all_ pen marks.
