Description Explorer09 2018-06-29 08:32:47 UTC
This is a UI feature request.

On a two monitor setup, with the Presenter Console enabled in the slide show, when I reach the black screen after last slide (with "Click to exit presentation" text), clicking the "Next" button on the Console further would end the presentation and show whatever you are doing "backstage".

Ideally there should be a separate "Exit" button on the Presenter Console and the "Next" button should be disabled when the black screen after last slide is reached. The aim is to prevent user from accidentally exiting the presentation.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect to two monitors
2. In LibreOffice Impress, make sure the Presenter Console is enabled, and start a slide show.
3. Press "End" key on your keyboard to go to last slide.
4. On the Presenter Console, mouse click the "Next" button twice and see the presentation exits.

Actual Results:
The presentation exits after clicking "Next" button twice.

Expected Results:
The "Next" button may only be clicked once to go to a black screen after the list slide, and after that the button should be disabled.
In addition, there should be a separate "Exit" button on the Presenter Console, the presentation should exit only when the presenter clicks it or presses the "Esc" hotkey.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Involving UX as this is changing established behaviour.
Comment 2 Heiko Tietze 2018-07-23 10:54:24 UTC
Sounds reasonable. We should always show the Exit button, not only when the end has been reached, and disable Next on the last slide.

This might be an esay hack.

The Next button is now disabled when the last slide is reached, just as it happens for Previous in case of the first slide. You can still go ahead with cursor right (or any other shortcut for the next slide) to get to the black "end of presentation" slide.

There is no Exit or Quit button yet. It could be possible, at least the button is not too hard to add, but I was lazy in the end to figure out how to end the presentation per code. If needed I'll do that later.
