Description jasonspiro 2006-11-23 21:19:09 UTC
It would be great if there were a checkbox labeled "Show animations and slide
transitions" that users could uncheck.  Hopefully this option would be easily
discoverable, e.g. accessible from the menu bar.

Usecase 1:  Edna, a teacher, has a slow laptop.  Excruciatingly slow.  She wants
to disable effects on her laptop so she can show the slideshows that her
textbook's author emailed her at reasonable speed.

Usecase 2:  Jason, a computer enthusiast, wants to view a .PPT file he found on
the web with nice large fonts (slideshow size.)  But he doesn't want to have to
click 5 times to view a slide.  He wants the whole show to show up at once.

This is particularly appreciable when you receive joke emails with a
presentation while a simple text file would do the job. Lots of people seems to
like adding music and transition between a few text, dramatically slowing down
the reading.

So instead of laughing, you become frustrated !

Manuel, the "View > Outline" menu option would handle your use case too, though
maybe not as well.  I don't think it would show images.

jasonspiro : Hi, thanks for your tip.

I can't use it anyway. Here is my use case.

I got an email with my client (thunderbird, evolution, ...whatever), a
presentation is attached.

I double-click on the attachement, a box ask me if I want to save the file or
just open it with the default software (OpenOffice of course)

I have no opportunity to access the menu, the diaporama just starts (and I'm ok
with this except for the fact I would be happy to override transition/effects)
