Description isaare 2003-07-05 23:41:34 UTC
I would like to have the possibility of opening a presentation directly in full 
screen mode instead of having to view the program window and then pushing the 
slideshow button. 

This is the feature I miss the most since I moved from MS... You know, .pps 

This is quite important at the University where I work because it's a lot 
faster showing slides in this mode, you don't have to lose two more minutes of 
a class to simply open the program and then start the slideshow, which also 
makes pupils go attention-lacking and messy.

Also I think a sxi viewer would do the trick...

How do you propose this to be implemented? The way it's opened by Impress it's
correct, it opens it for editing by default. 

Note that you can export the presentations as Flash and open them in browser
directly in Slide Show mode. Another solution would be a dedicated viewer, which
means a viewer for all types of OOo stadard format. This it's not a priority and
perhaps somebody else will implement it, as OOo formats are OASIS standard.

Well could it be a simple shell menu option? Right click on your file's icon,
then select Open In Fullscreen Mode... And it starts playing without firstly
showing OOO normal interface

I think that issue 16492 issue 16808 issue 22147 (and maybe issue 28918 ) are
all about the same issue, aren't they? So 2 of them could be closed as duplicates.
Despite of that, I think this would be a nice feature for OOo. (See the number
of duplicates).
Maybe an Impress Viwer would be nice too.

As per previous posting: Verified -> Closed.
A Closed Issue is a Happy Issue (TM).

This is NOT a duplicate. This issue is about opening the presentation
automatically in presentation regime. That means, I will chceck some option upon
SAVING a presentation, so that the next one who opens it, gets directly into
presentation mode.

The issue 16808 is about using shell switches to run presentation, so this is
about an action on the side of recipient.

Please, reopen. This issue is *not* resolved.
