Description jlcheng 2006-07-06 03:09:00 UTC
In MS PPT, slide show range can custom like "from" somepage "to" after another
page(I use Chinese version, I can not give english UI explain). In OOo is "From"
somepage to endpage of impress, not very good custom. So I think OOo need to do
something to provide this ENHANCEMENT. :)

Now, I have a problem, from "9.11.5
Presentation Settings", I get "Start Page". Now if I add a range "to"(like MS
PPT), the ODF no "End Page" or "Stop Page"(only "presentation:start-page"
attribute). How do I should do? Now I have tested to add something in "xmloff",
but this is not standard, can I submit standard change to oasis? Or oasis give
me  some suggestion?

I have added "presentation:end-page" attribute in my debug program. Now I do
something for this issue and I want to join dev member(of course, only spare time).

I think that adding a custom range for presentation slide can be a very good 
enhancement. It can be very helpful feature at many places. Suppose that in a 
25 slide presentation, user want to show the presentation form slide 5 to slide 
10 only. He doesn’t want to show any other slide. So the user should be able to 
provide the custom range of slide ‘5’ (From) to ’10’ (To). With the current OOo 
user can only provide the starting point of the range i.e.â€From†but not the 
ending point of the range i.e. “Toâ€. It will go to the end of the slide show 
i.e. the last slide of the slide show. 

So I think this feature should be provided in the OO Impress.
To select the starting range, click on “Slide Show†on the menu bar and then 
click “Slide Show Settingâ€.
I am using version:
OpenOffice 3.0.1
OOO300m15 (Build: 9379)

Do not use "Slide Show Setting" but "Custom Slide Show". You can define what
ever range you want. In addition you can skip slides or use a new order. With
OOo you are able to build your slide show more flexible than only determine a
"from" and "to".

This is a feature request and the description is clear, so I will confirm it as
feature request. But I personally think, that there is no need for an additional
field. If you think this too, you should close the issue.

But i think that feature should not be at some other place "Custom Slide Show". 
I think that feature should be included at "Slide Show Setting" only as there 
is an option for "All Slides", option for "From". So if the option "To" is 
included there it would be good for users. So i think there should be 
enhancement for it.
