Description jkonecn 2008-01-25 21:33:43 UTC
I propose an option to reload an image if it is a link when the slide that
contains it is shown.  This way you can have a dynamic slide that is updated
with the latest information that you want to show.  This would be ideal for
kiosks and also presentations that need up to the minute data.  When the slide
is shown, Impress should look for an updated image (if told to do so) whether it
is on a hard drive or via an http link.  The slide timer should be suspended
during this download time.  There should also be a timeout function leaving the
last retrieved image in place if a new one cannot be found.  A small error
message could be displayed when a download fails as well.

It might be relevant to have an option to download the image based on a newer
date/time or to force it.

This is an enhancement

Can you please give a real life example for a presentation where update during file open is insufficient and only update during slide show mode is acceptable?
