Description Graham Field 2018-11-03 15:16:42 UTC
There does not seem to be a function available to add a sound file, so that it plays all the time the presentation is running.
(In MS PowerPoint, this is set by the 'Add Soundfile' 'play across all slides' feature.)
Adding a sound-file, then setting this option, would automatically set the slide change timings so that all the slides would finish as the soundtrack does. (i.e. with a soundtrack lasting 5 minutes, and say 60 slides, each slide would be on-screen for 5 seconds.)

Actual Results:
I can have a sound file associated with a single slide, but cannot find a way to set the sound files over the entire presentation.

Expected Results:

Reproducible: Always

Sounds reasonable
