Description Armin Le Grand 2008-06-05 12:24:12 UTC
When working on objects in Draw/Impress and having zommed in to do so, is is easy to lose orientation. It would be very helpful to visualize the visible part of the view with an overlay object on the corresponding PagePreview in the PagePane. When working zoomed, this would give orientation with a single look and add useful functionality for the page pane (especially for draw). Using an overlay object this would need no content repaints and be cheap. Only paint the zoomed area clipped with the page margins, so nothing would be displayed in Impress default view (whole page). For visulaisation, a dashed line (like for selection frames) or alternatively a selection frame (selection filled transparently with the user's choosen selection color, see SC selection) could be used. An extra would be to be able to move that area with the mouse to change the zoomed area, but even without this it would be a nice usability feature.

Setting target to OOo 3.x due to time constraints.
