Description aigarius 2008-11-12 07:46:43 UTC
Normally one can advance the presentation be clicking the left mouse button of
scrolling down with a muse wheel and go back one slide by clicking the right
mouse button or scrolling the mouse wheel up, but when the Presenter Screen
addon is installed (in OOO3 beta) these actions do nothing.

This bug is VERY important because all experienced presenters use wireless mice
or special presentation hardware (clickers) that advance slides by emulating a
mouse wheel action and making all those devices fail with OpenOffice 3 new
Presenter Screen feature would be unacceptable.

Note: this is not the same as issue 88836, as it only deals with the mousewheel
on the Presenter Screen itself to scroll presentation notes and such. If the
mouse is moved over to the projector screen (where the presentation is) the
mouse wheel needs to work.

When I have clicked once intot the running presentation the mouse wheel works in
both directions. When I have used the arrows of the presenter screen there seems
to be a wrong focus. I have to click into the presentation window first, after
this the wheel works again.

I would love to see this fixed rather sooner than later...

Has the mouse wheel issue been advanced by the beta OOo 3.2.1?

See and
particularly discussion of a mouse wheel scroll addition to the API.

already referenced from the above page.
