Description raindrops 2007-10-01 07:23:02 UTC
The writer allows us to insert a gif image. the animation of the image keeps
running.

This is good for an article that illustrates how things work.

However, this also has a problem: The animated GIF is actually a series of still
"slides". The user cannot know which particular "slide" will be printed. Note
that out of all slides, only certain slides would convey what the writer wants
to convey.

But Writer does not have any control to-
(a) Stop the animation (at a particular slide)
(b) Select a particular "slide" for printing.

Note that (a) and (b) are independent of each other: The first is for viewing
only; the second is for printing only.

The best place for these controls is in "Properties" dialog of the image.
