Description pmartineau 2009-05-30 14:45:53 UTC
When giving a presentation it is sometimes necessary to go quickly to a specific
slide to answer a question for instance.
Currently Impress allows only to go to a specific slide by page number
(right-click). It is usually not convenient since we don't know the slide number.
A very nice feature is present in the presentation program "Impressive" and is called "Overview screen".
The idea is to hit the Tab key and have a presentation of all the slides on 1
screen (as in the OOo sorter view). You can thus quickly select a specific slide
by clicking it.
I think that such a feature could greatly enhance Impress.

Thanks a lot for your work on this nice program.

This is another idea of how to solve the same problem. 
It's called "ring switcher" and it is commonly used in Linux to switch windows. 
The advantage is that we can look for the slide that we are searching in a bigger 
size, as well as we can see many slides at one time. Thus,this method is good to 
use  when we have a presentantion with a lot of slides designed with considerable 
In addition, the interaction is very dynamic and we can easily go forth and back.
You can see an example here:

The presenter screen is integrated in AOO4.0.1. It provides the requested overview in presentation mode.
