Description h.hristov 2005-07-29 23:37:03 UTC
I find out that Draw and Impress use the same strings for Slide (left part of
the screen), Insert -Slide, Edit - Delete slide.
But in Draw in the left part of the screen where "slides" are when I click with
right mouse button appears a oppup menu where we have New pagae, Rename page.
So, in Draw I presume, we have Page instead of Slide. But the problem is that In
Draw menus and other place also have used Slide.
I hope that I explaned this well.
Which I understand is that in Darw we have pages instead of slides in Impress,
but there are used a lot of string from Impress which I can not change because
this change will appread in Impress. So can these string be separated from Impress?

Draw and Impress have the same roots, thats why there arestill the wrong namings
in some places.

Comment 3 wolframgarten 2005-08-01 08:48:56 UTC
The places I have found in Draw are:
Context menu/Page/Slide Design
Context menu/Rename page/Rename slide (<- name of dialog)
Default name of newly inserted pages is slide 1,2,3..
Menu Insert/Slide
Menu Insert/Duplicate slide
Menu Edit/Delete slide

IMHO Issue 42158 is a DUP of this one?

The name "Slide 1" is a DisplayName, the actual name is "page1". If you create a
new Draw document with English UI, save it, and then open it with a Spanish UI,
you will see the name of the first page becomes "Página 1".
Comment 10 Rainer Bielefeld 2010-08-19 18:17:14 UTC
But in Spanish UI also for Impress Name "Página" is used like in DRAW, so that
IMHO is a separate l10n issue.
Comment 11 fyva 2010-08-19 19:16:28 UTC
There is one string used for both Draw and Impress, and in some translations it
is translated as Page (Spanish, Russian), in others as Slide (English). If it is
translated to Page, as in Spanish (Página), then in Drawing all is OK, but in
Impress you will see Página instead of Diapositiva. This issue is not only to
Drawing, but for both Presentation and Drawing. This string (Slide, Page)
appears in both Draw and Impress for slides that don't have customized names. If
the name of the Page (Slide) was customized, then its Name and LinkDisplayName
are equal. You can check this with MRI
(, if you run the macro to
default first page  and to the page with a customized name.  

Sub Main
Globalscope.BasicLibraries.LoadLibrary( "MRILib" )
End Sub

BTW, you can't set the name of the slide to "Slide N" by renaming it, because
the OK button will be grey. But if you do it in the UI other than English, you
can set the name of the slide to be "Slide N" (where N is a number), and then
open it with the English UI. The macro will show that the Name and the
LinkDisplayName are both "Slide N" (i.e. the "Slide N" is no more automatic, it
isn't going to change when you change the UI).

(sorry) the above macro must have "mri" in front of "ThisComponent.DrawPages(0)
", i.e. "mri ThisComponent.DrawPages(0)"

Reset assigne to the default "".
