When right-clicking a slide in the sidebar or the slide sorter, you can hide/unhide (enable/disable) individual slides to be shown during the presentation.
The problem is that their hidden state is not obvious enough: the only visual indication you have is that there is a diagonal line going through the small "slide number" box.
A better way to indicate the disabled/hidden state of slides, as well as ensure that they do not needlessly clutter the view, would be to make them 50% transparent.
Attached is a screenshot of how it currently looks like; try spotting, in a split-second, which slides are disabled or not when you have dozens of them!

Nice idea, but IMHO a diagonal red strike through bar might do the same with less consumption of resources
Doesn't it use hardware acceleration/compositing for transparency anyway? Perhaps it could do one or another depending on the availability of HW accel. But yes, at the end of the day, a big diagonal strikethrough could do the job (just a bit less elegantly).
