Description christian.jansen 2008-10-29 16:35:59 UTC
- Close Task Panel
- Add slide (press Slide Button in toolbar)
- Task Panel is displayed instead of staying closed.
This is very annoying.

Reproducible. Reassigned.
Comment 2 groucho266 2008-11-19 15:37:10 UTC
@CJ: This works as requested (and probably specified) by you.
Comment 3 christian.jansen 2008-11-19 15:44:31 UTC
I can't remember that I've specified such behavior. Anyhow, it should be change
to something where the user has control about it. :-) Please change the behavior
in a way that it stays closed if one closed the pane.

dupe of #55729 ?
Comment 5 groucho266 2008-12-03 09:01:50 UTC
@ nekohayo: No, issue 55729 describes a bug.  The reappearance of the task panel
was once build in as a feature: Once the layout menu was a dialog that appeared
every time a new slide was created.  When the layout menu was moved into the
task pane, the task pane was made visible instead.

96381: Each and every time I open an Impress window I have to close the task
pane. No, I don't want it. I don't need it. It just consumes screen space. If I
need it I want to be in control and open it myself and close it afterwards when
no longer needed.
=> The state of the task pane should become a persistent Impress setting.

Setting target to OOo 3.2 due to time constraints.

Someone from IBM in Zurich says: Indeed, this has annoyed me for years already;
in search of the hidden option to turn off this "feature", I came across your
post. Thanks for raising this!
Comment 11 matthias.mueller-prove 2008-12-15 15:57:09 UTC
And I like to add: For my Impress doc I have to close the task pane 4 times. My
scenario has 2 windows open to compare slides and changing between slide mode
and slide sorter gives another 2 task panes. It really takes time to arrange the
document after opening.

Project renaissance is working on the task panel and will take care of this issue.
Comment 15 groucho266 2011-02-08 16:09:54 UTC
Changing target.
