Description cno 2008-04-19 21:24:37 UTC
In the Normal view of a slide,
click context menu Slide> Slide layout 
-> nothing happens, because the slide layout already is present.

This is superfluous and it causes confusion for the user: which menu to choose?
(Probably a remnant from 1.x ?)
Comment 1 wolframgarten 2008-04-21 08:25:53 UTC
Should be greyed out. Reassigned.
Comment 2 cno 2008-04-21 08:31:16 UTC
Are you sure?
In Notes / Handout / Slide sorter the menu entry does not activate the Normal
view ...
Comment 3 wolframgarten 2008-04-21 09:38:44 UTC
Yes I am. In Notesview, Handout, Slidesorter/Context menu there is no entry
Normal view. the menu entry View/Normal works as desired.
Comment 4 cno 2008-04-21 09:44:50 UTC
Then what should the context menu Slide> Slide layout lead to ??
Comment 5 cno 2008-05-03 17:04:42 UTC
Turns out that Slide> Slide layout opens the Task pane (View|Taks pane) when
that one is closed. But not necessary at the slide layout section.
Ugly ..
