Description raindrops 2006-04-04 15:24:47 UTC
In "Notes" and "Handout" views, large margin is provided around the slides. When
printed and distributed as handouts, the free space around each slide can be
used to make notes.

But there is a HUGE disadvantage: The size of each slide is so tiny that it is
hardly legible! (especially for slides with small text and detailed images).

Suggestion: Allow the presenter to freely adjust the size of each slide, so that
it can be more ligible. 

The control could be in the form of a size enlargement factor. 
    >> In case the page layout has multiple slides, the size of all slides
should be changed simlultaneously when the factor is changed. Show this in the
preview, so that the author can see the result "live".
    >> Impress should automatically set the maximum limit for this factor-- It
must not allow the slides to overlap each other (or go inside the page margins).

Note that the maximum permissible value of the factor will depend upon the
number of slides per page and the page orientation (portrait/landscape).

Actually this is partial duplicate only: The other issue does not talk about
"notes" view. Please change the summary for this issue and let it address this part.

Slide size is adjustable in notes view.
