Description Heiko Tietze 2017-01-13 09:32:39 UTC
Draw/Impress has File > Export > Html which leads to the ancient wizard with some limitations (bug 66259). The design team recommends to drop this wizard (similar to what is in progress for Writer in bug 99967) and make the html export like any other export function, i.e. one (successively numbered) document per slide with images in the original size and no cropping. Notes and comments are not exported. Everything else from the wizard is obsolete.
It was also recommended to clean up the filters (export, save behave differently).

This ticket could be an easyhack. Another, more general issue about what slides to export requires a dialog which goes into another ticket.

It's suggested to use svg for users who want to show a presentation in the browser.

Huh ? there are no comment #8 on this bug ?

I am not sure what the scope is here, you talk about different things:
a) drop this wizard (easy, remove the menu entry)
b) make the html export like any other export function (surely not a easyhack)
c) clean up the filters (does not sound like a easyhack)

please be specific, what is to be done in this easyhack.

You would loose the html export option completely, and that's not what we want. Rather the current/selected slides should be exported with default settings, and I was taught it could be an easy hack. The task is to remove everything between start of the wizard and export of slides.
Comment 5 jani 2017-01-16 08:39:43 UTC
OK, I just wanted to have the scope clarified, and the b) c) versions does not look like easy hacks.

Not a duplicate. 
This wizard is still alive and kicking here:

Please do not delete this wizzard or otherwise supply a working alternative. I have the following usecase. I export to html a presentation and currently chose the 1024x786 resolution. This gives me a lot of nice png images. I use these images to include in an asciidoc book.

Actually I would like to propose to add another option to this wizzard, namely to export the images in highres (300dpi). That would really help.

Just my € 0,02....

Give Export to SVG a chance.

QA response...

Remains valid. Current Wizard needs to go for a cleaner export to SVG, and higher DPI and layout size matching canvas layout.
