Description holgerbrandl 2009-01-22 20:48:26 UTC
In contrast to PowerPoint OpenOffice displays only one bounding rectangle around
a set of selected objects. However on complex slides this makes it impossible to
see what is actually selected. 

The approach of PowerPoint seems clearly superior here, because it makes clear
what is selected, no matter how complex a slide is.

It would greatly improve the usability of Impress if each object in a set of
selected object could appear as selected by itself. 

Note: The same should happen if an extension selects several objects at once
using cs)

I beg your pardon folks!! It was an issue in 3.0, but it has been fixed since
than: DEV300_m39 does a great job here., and visualizes each selected object

Unfortunately this seems to be not consistent. Sometimes selection is visualized
per object, but mostly with one rectangluar as described above. Therefore it's
not as fixed as believed by myself some hours ago. 

Maybe the mode can be switched, but then it's far from clear how this can be done.
