Description Timur 2011-06-13 10:51:27 UTC
I'd like to see zooming presentation functionality in Impress. 
There are 2 concepts I've seen so far: 
- Prezi Desktop, which is a standalone Air application, where you are not limited with slides and 
- PptPlex, which is an add-on for Microsoft Office, where you use traditional slides with a canvas, probably more appropriate here.

Is this idea also part of bug 38169? That bug also talks about zooming, besides other improvements when giving a presentation.
Comment 2 Timur 2011-07-11 00:11:43 UTC
No, that's not the same.

I very much agree to taking Impress in this direction.  Being able to provide custom animation which would tie an entire presentation together is very aesthetic, and Prezi currently dires a great job with this.

If there is ability to create "zoom areas" within slides, I think this could solve the basic function.  But ultimately a higher-level control to give navigation to the whole presentation would be the way to go.

Is there possibility of utilizing some opensource libraries (OpenShot, MLT, etc.) which could provide code to be brought in for this purpose?

FYI: 
A zooming presentation features was recently added to MS Powerpoint : https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Use-Zoom-for-PowerPoint-to-bring-your-presentation-to-life-9d6c58cd-2125-4d29-86b1-0097c7dc47d7?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US

There are a number of OSS zooming presentation software, which might be helpful for the implementation of this feature in LibreOffice:
