Description haui 2005-05-29 20:09:40 UTC
When I first saw character styles in the Writer application, I was delighted to
use this also for my slides. Unfortunately, this fantastic feature is missing
from the Presentation application. What's the fundamental difference of a text
box in Writer and a text box in Impress? Why are there two different editing and
rendering engines? Are there, or is only the menu item missing?

You do not mean the stylist in Draw/Impress, to be called with F11?
Comment 2 haui 2005-05-30 09:20:00 UTC
I exactly mean the stylist, which is called with F11. The summary line should
have been "Named character styles...". Yes, it would be great to have named
character styles in a presentation. I always use rich formatting on slides to
make it more easy for the listener to match corresponding entities by using the
same color/formatting for words or phrases dealing with the same thing.

Since the number of colors, which can easily be distinguished from each other,
is limited, it's sometimes necessary to change the formatting-meaning
associations. Without named styles, one has the rework all previous slides to
fix the formatting with the risk of introducing errors.

Changed the summary and reassigned.

it looks much like #57296 which has been ignored for a while as well (but at
least it reached the "NEW" status).

I think, that this is duplicate to issue 19340. I'm going to close it. Please
move your votes; unfortunately it cannot be done automatically.
If you disagree, please explain the difference.
