Description Frank Brown 2017-01-12 19:39:29 UTC
Impress currently plays a slideshow in either "Full Screen" or in a program window.    When using a computer to display multiple presentations on a large monitor, such as in a lobby or cafe, it would be great to be able to resize the slideshow so that other applications could share the desktop.     For example, we want to run the slideshow along with a live news stream like CNN or MSNBC.    Running in "Full Screen" hides the other application, and running in program mode wastes space unnecessarily showing the program.

First idea: Why don't you integrate the stream into the presentation? (Would be a different issue)

And I agree that it should be possible/the default to detach the presentation from the actual window. The presentation mode is today a mixture of visualization (full screen vs. windowed) and mode (loop) that could be solved easily by separating "loop" from the modes.

A possible solution is also to implement the full-screen mode in Impress as requested in bug 35008 (and likely somewhere else too).

(removing UX; but please keep us in the loop, @dev)
