Description wmuys 2006-01-15 20:27:19 UTC
I would like to be able to use more fields in Impress, similar as in Writer. For
instance fields like "Last modified" etc.

I have added votes to this issue

Reason / Use case : I extensively use Impress to draw all kind of scenarii
diagrams (mainly for Business Continuity Plans), and the availability of user
fields like the TextMasterFields in Writer could greatly improve and automate
this kind of work, as a lot of data (f.e. teams' names, providers, emergency
numbers, company name ...) found in the diagrams' blocks are redundant among the
different pages.

In fact, I don't understand why this is a Writer-specific feature whereas it
could be a commonly used one in all OOo document types.

Another Use Case: 
Every presentation in my company must use a template: presentation title goes on
bottom right of every slide. The first slide must contain title, department,
author and date.

I'm having some serious troubles since I can't create fields (like "title" or
"department"). I guess using file properties as fields will help a lot and,
IMHO,  it's not hard to develop.

I'm thinking something like: "Insert/Fields/File Properties/General/Last
Modified", "Insert/Fields/File Properties/Description/Title", etc. My idea is a
1:1 relationship between file properties and the menu.

Collecting all "more fields" for Draw/Impress requests in one issue. Draw and Impress have a lot of common source, therefore put these requests together.
