Description holgerbrandl 2007-08-26 16:54:09 UTC
According to the "Developer Guide" it is not possible to insert files into a
presentation document through API (cf. chapter 10.3.3).

It would be nice to add such a functionality in order to allow extensions to
create combined presentation documents.

(To give an example: Using the OpenCards (http://www.opencards.info) extension
it would be great to combine different flashcard-sets (aka
Impress-presentation-files) on-the-fly into large master-flashcardsets. This
master-flashcardsets would be used to query the user all scheduled slides
without opening all flashcard-presentations one after another)

There is com.sun.star.document.XDocumentInsertable; it's already supported by
Writer, would be nice to have it in the other applications also. Perhaps we can
arrange the implementation with the SFX team.

Forgot to mention: Writer has the interface at its model.

This is an enhancement.
