Description afx 2009-11-06 09:20:51 UTC
I really don't understand the reasoning behind issue, but so what.

When defining master pages one has some default layout that can not be removed
in there...
If master pages have no assignable layouts, than the fixed layout in there needs
to be removed, it is utterly confusing for the user to have one fixed layout in
the master page that has nothing to do with the intended use of the master page.

The sensible solution of course would be to have user definable default layouts
per master page.

The title and outline area on the master page are used to place the presentation
layout shapes on the slides that use this master page. If you move or resize the
title you move and resize the title shapes on all its slides (unless you
modified them yourself in that case your position and size is hard formate for
that slide..)

This does not only work for the tite,text layout you see on the master page but
for almost all other layouts...

Comment 3 afx 2009-11-06 10:06:40 UTC
You answer does not touch the problem at all.

A title page for example does not need two layout fields, but the current design
forces me to have two layout fields as they can not be deleted on a master page.

If I want 4 layout fields by default on a master, then the current design does
not allow me to do this.

As the position of the layout fields need to be aligned with the background
given by the master, the current design forces the user to perform realignment
for all foils individually where the standard tile+textblob default does not fit.

Please attach mock-up of the sensible solution.

Hmm, wow a 5 year old Zombie...

anyway, a mockup would not achive anything, because the issue is in the logic and not on the UI.

Surely the issue has an affect on the UI and a mock-up will help understanding the logic. A picture is worth a thousand words...
