Description jsampaio57 2007-07-12 03:17:50 UTC
A calc object included in impress can only have its cells changed in design
view. I wonder if it would be possible to have the cells changed, and
calculation performed, during a slide presentation. I use several calc objects
in my lectures to demonstrate engineering calculations but If I need to change a
cell value I must stop the presentation. Thanks.  Jorge

I received an email from Russel saying that the feature ia already in Impress. I
didn't mean "dynamic link", which uses a link to an external .ods file to update
the object embedded in the presentation whenever the presentation is open (a
feature long existing in spreadsheets).

I mean a dynamic calc object that can be changed "on the fly" during a slide
presentation. I want, during a slide presentation, to change a cell and have the
calc object to recalculate everything and present the new values in the object,
without having to interrupt the presentation. This is useful in presentations fo
show simulations and scenarios. The only way to change a cell value is by
stopping the presentation and changing the object in design mode.
This is completely different from dynamic link, and is a feature that doesn't
exist neither in Impress nor in similars like ms-excel.
I hope this had clarified the issue. Thanks.
