Description jeff_stack 2004-03-02 01:23:55 UTC
I am using OpenOffice on a Tablet PC.  My tablet is a slate so nearly all my 
interaction is with a pen that has left and right click capibility. 

I would like the ability to annotate with ink (draw) on a presentation while 
the presentation is in slideshow mode.  Currently you can only draw in markup 
mode.  Once the presentation is in slideshow mode a left click moves you to 
the next screen.  The new PowerPoint 2003 allows you to add an annotation 
overlay on the presentation.  For example, as you give the presentation you 
could circle or underline key words with the pen/mouse to highlight key points 
and these markups would be immediatly visable to the viewers.

At the end of the presentation you have the option of keeping or discarding 
the annotations.

I reopened this issue, because I think it contains an useful feature request.
Issue 21438 is more or less dead because we can find all "Tablet PC" issues by

Jeff, I have some questions concerning this issue:

Do I understand it correctly, you want to use IMPRESS a little like a blackboard
or an overhead projector: You can show a prepared image and add some comments
during the presentation?

My second question: is that really a feature only missing for Tablet PC? I do
not have much knowledge concerning IMPRESS, so I do not know whether it is
possible on a "normal PC" to add such comments by keyboard while the
presentation is running? Do I understand yo right? yo reyuest something like a
double function for the mouseclick like
short click: next slide
long click: changes to the INK MODE, you can write on the actual slide

I felt that this issue was wrongly discarded so posted an addendum as 

You have my idea exactly.  I would like to use it like a transparency overhead 
where the presentation slide you created is shown full-screen as normal during 
a presentation BUT at the same time you can directly markup the screen using 
the drawing tools.  Sort of like putting a overhead underneath the plastic 
transparency and writing on top without changing the overhead.

This is not only an issue regarding tablet pc's.  This is the first time I 
have used the Issue report method and though I was suppost to give all the 
info about my system.  The pen on a Tablet PC works exactly the same as a 
mouse.  When the pen touches the screen it acts like a press and hold left 
mouse click.  

The short-click/long-click would be an ok solution but subject to false 
positives (eg a "minus" sign in an equation could be interpreted as a short-
click while a large, slowly drawn circle around a figure of interest would be 
captured as a long-click.

I was thinking of having an option that when the drawing tools (perhaps toggle 
on/off by a small floating always on-top button during the presentation) are 
in use the mouse is no longer used for paging through the presentation.  
Instead the arrow-keys and page-up/page-down keys could be used.

A final cool option would be that at the end of the presentation you have an 
option to "save-as" the changes made.  Eg.  You could save a copy of your 
presentation with all the new annotations that could then be e-mailed to the 
class.  This would not only be a great feature for teachers, but if the 
students had the presentations ahead of time they could mark them up as the 
lecture goes on and then save all their notes for their own study purposes or 
for sharing with classmates.

If you would like any further clarification please just ask.

This is a dupe of issue 26137. (Not the other way round, because the other issue
has less noise.)

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
