Description pwright2 2003-04-15 03:35:36 UTC
(3) Display support for second monitor in two monitor systems.  Select ability
to show slideshow on 2nd monitor while edit page is still shown on first monitor.  
         (3a) Unlike PPT, any presentation called by the active presentation
should inherit the display property of the first.  That is, if the primary
presentation is being shown on the second screen, any presentation called by it
should also show on the second screen.  (PPT always defaults a presentation to
the primary sceen.  When showing a presentation on the secondary screen, if it
calls another presentation, that one shows on the primary screen.  Stupid,
stupid, stupid.  But, I digress.)

         (3b)  A capability that does not at all exist in PPT but would be
extremely valuable:  In a two screen system, there should be a mode where the
primary screen is showing something like the slide sorter view (slide
thumbnails) and the secondary screen is showing the fullscreen slides.  The
slide being shown would also be highlighted in the thumbnail view.  Pressing
page down, etc, would change the projected slide as normal and also change which
slide was highlighted on the thumbnail view on the primary screen.  Clicking a
thumbnail would cause that slide to be projected.  This would provide a random
access projection capability which would compete with much of the church worship
software on the market for showing slideshows during worship services. 

This is a continuation as submitted in Issue 13389

I concur with most of Paul Wright's comments. The only area I would 
beg to differ slightly is in "competing" with church worship 
software. There is at least one free worship software offering which 
provides excellent and developing support for extremely flexible song 
display (not presentation or powerpoint like) but which runs 
powerpoint to support sermons, teaching etc. I know they would dearly 
love to run Impress instead but the lack of features mentioned by 
Paul means they are still dependent on powerpoint (I digress too..)

The first feature Paul mentioned is certainly the most annoying 
aspect of powerpoint on the Win98SE platform (apart from $$, that is).
Sorry this only provides support for Paul's suggestions rather than 
anything novel but I am just about to launch into using OpenOffice to 
develop some training modules to help some of my clients move away 
from MSOffice.

This idea is duplicate to 12719, as that is the first written one.
Nevertheless This issue 13440 has to be considered within issue 12719.
