Description owqcd 2008-11-14 14:56:32 UTC
Hello,

I made a presentation with very simple effects : boxes appearing in order to
highlight some points. Then I exported a pdf file (with the box "use transition
effects" checked)...

I was expecting that one slide would produce several pdf pages, where each
successive pdf page would correspond to next effect (beamer-like). In my precise
case, I was expecting highlight boxes to appear the one after the other.

However, only one pdf page was produced, with all the elements already on that
page. I could not get what I expected.

I am not looking for bells and whistles, animated transitions or 3D effects... I
just would like things to appear the one after the other, according to the
ordering of the effects.

Isn't it possible ??? Am I missing something ?

Regards,

O.C.

Spreading an effect to several pages would be a new feature I suppose. And on
the other hand the number of effects that can be displayed by Acrobat is
limited. I reassign this issue to get a propper answer. sj, can you add a
comment, please?

+1, an export to pdk like beamer is very needful to use it easily. Thanks to
improve pdf export.

Removing all special effects while just adding a new page each time something
appears/disappears would be a very important feature already.

I'd like to second (third?) this.
There was an example implementation in 
this posting, which does the job for me:

http://www.mail-archive.com/dev@graphics.openoffice.org/msg00841.html

If this gets integrated, the author would need to be contacted 
to clarify the license and it needs to be integrated 
into the PDF export with a tick mark "Expand animations".

The user should never actually see the expanded slides,
they exist only during PDF export.

Yours,
Steffen

Matthew Neeley published it under LGPL (see https://gist.github.com/977752)

This is exactly what the extension ExpandAnimations does (based on Matthew Neeley's macro, see http://github.com/downloads/monperrus/ExpandAnimations/ExpandAnimations-latest.oxt)
