The size of the blocks in which the dissolve creates the objects

screen, and significantly less good than other competitive office products.

Yes, a change would improve the dissolve-effect. We should change it as object- 
and slide-effect. And for the object-effect the granularity should be adjusted 
according to the size of the object (getting more fine/coarse the 
smaller/bigger the object is; upper limit should be the resolution for the

It would be nice to at-least make 64x64 optional for improved compatibility
with what my colleagues use.

only need this working for win32 & mac. ;)
