Description Erkki Laaneoks 2018-01-28 23:57:46 UTC
LibreOffice Impress need option "skip hidden slides" at Insert => "Page Number...". 
When selected then hidden slides not counted.
At the moment when I have 10 slides and I hide 5th slide. Then last slide page number is still 10, but it should be 9.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add some slides
2. Add page numbers (Insert => Fields => "Page Number"
3. Hide some slides (not the end of slideshow)

Actual Results:  
Hidden slides is still counted

Expected Results:
Hidden slides not taken into account on counting.

Reproducible: Always

Küsime design-meeskonnalt.

Do we really need to make this optional?
Comment 3 Thomas Lendo 2018-10-07 23:27:49 UTC
I recommend to not count hidden slides automatically. So no new UI changes must be done.

Is there a use case for counting hidden slides?

(I would swear to have seen a similar report..)
Comment 5 Heiko Tietze 2019-01-24 09:38:11 UTC
While there are some concerns here I support the request. Development needs to check the status before and restart numbering in case of changes.

Might be a (not so easy) easyhack.
