Description ecastro 2005-03-08 10:13:54 UTC
When I used PowerPoint (two years ago) I used most two types of callouts that
are not available in Impress. Now you have added new callout shapes (some
duplicated, see issue 44428), but I still miss two very powerful features:

a) A callout with a poligonal line with TWO angles (now there is one with 1
angle). In addition the first two segmenst should be forced to be horizontal or
vertical lines.

b) A callout without borders around the text textbox. In fact I used almost
exclusively a callout with a vertical border indicating the textbox. I suggest
in OOo making the borders of the text box optional. Let the users select if they
have a closed box, or just some borders (like in a paragraph).
If that's not possible, then adding new drawing objects. In PPT they are
separate objects in the toolbox.

I am attaching a example.
