Description gagin 2007-04-07 14:41:47 UTC
Conference speakers need two version of presentations: one is for actual speach
and another is for archive and later online reading by users. Oral one is
shorter and should not include readable paragraphs but just thesis. It would be
cool feature of the Impress if it would support this functionality by having
these two modes. We can have special style for reading/print paragraph which
would not display on projector but titles and list should be automatically made
larger then. We also need two export versions for those presentation computers
which has MS Powerpoint installed.

Hi gagin,

Can you explain what you would like changed at, or added to, the current modes:
- drawing mode
- notes
- hand-out
It is hard to understand from your first explanantion what is missing where in
your opinion.
Comment 2 gagin 2007-04-08 17:16:27 UTC
May be I missed something, but as I understand, these modes are different ways
to orginize presentation while working with it. What I'm proposing is to add to
drawing mode some tool to mark parts of the slide as reading-only. If such tool
is used, Impress should ask on presentation start if author will comment it or
user just reading presentation from archive. In first case, reading-only parts
shouldn't be displayed but remaining text should be increased in size to use
available space.
There is also needed option "just reading version/ just thesis version" option
on saving and exporting presentation. So author will choose if this version is
for conference archive or for presentation computer (when conference ask to
place file on computer which is connected to projector). On exporting and saving
to ppt this "reading only" information will be lost obviously.
It is important to mark some parts of slide's text as reading-only in "normal
mode" to maintain both thesis and reading version as one file, so author will
change title or something and it will be different in both verions.
Sorry if I'm asking for something already available or not describing it clearly
enough with my lousy english.

On the notes-view, you can have extra explanation.
Gives you the oportunity to bring more text/info, as you wrote in your first post.
This can be printed, or the slides only can be printed.

Now, do you ask for two forms of presenting the slides? One with full
explanation and another with less text, but text that covers also the space from
the text that is not shown?

Slide comments could be used as workaround but will not work in most cases.
Consider user who has downloaded presentation and reading it on screen. Probably
slide comments wouldn't be turned on.

Yes, this is what I'm thinking of.

and closing.
Comment 7 gagin 2007-04-10 09:20:41 UTC
This is not the same issue. Dual-screen capabilities are needed too (like in
Mac's KeyNote - show current and next slide with timing on presenter's screeen),
although I use NeoOffice version and this should be done on OS's side probably.
But what I'm proposing is different matter. It would be good not only for
presenter to see elaborated slides, but to have expanded on-screen version too -
for people, who would read the presentation from conference's archive.
As this proposal is arbitrary, it should be probably closed, but not as
duplicate.  (I just wanted to tell about this idea as it could be important
competetive feature for OpenOffice.)
