Description zumbi 2005-09-07 16:32:42 UTC

In OOo 1.1, it is very easy to move slides within a presentation: just select
the slides in Slide Sorter mode and move them with the mouse (keeping the left
mouse button pressed). If the target location is further in the presentation,
place the mouse cursor at the botton of the slide sorter window and this window
automatically scrolls down.

In OOo 2.0beta2, it can still be done, but the scrolling down or up is way much
slower than in 1.1. Same issue moving slides with the slide pane on the left.

As long as you move the slides to another location on the screen, no issue, as
no scrolling is needed.

This is a quite ugly usability issue, in particular with big presentations. Try
moving slides on, for example!

The only workaround I found is deleting the selection of slides ([Ctrl][X]),
scrolling down with the mouse, and pasting the selection in the target location
([Ctrl][V]). However, that's a more risky way, as you can loose some slides if
you ever forget to paste some of them.

What do you think?

I can confirm that with all 680m versions. 

There are 2 general problems with the new UI design, that the preview in the
"slide pane" (or "page pane" in DRAW) is too slow:

1. If you have slides containing big linked images, OOo needs too much time to
create the preview images (even with Athlon 3200+ iGB). But that is no problem
in the example.

2. Scrolling in the "drag and drop mode" for moving slides works to slow and
bucking. Same problem in DRAW.

I changed subcomponent to UI, because that seems to be the more applicable one.

The performance problems, make the usability problems of the slide sorter. 
actually slide sorter is a good things, but when it is super slow, it become 
unusable. and make another problems. 

since 2005, no new things. I hope this can get more attentions. 
since manye people complains about the OOo performance.
