Description stgries 2011-07-07 14:38:46 UTC
The new version of Impress doesn't allow to have a slide pane with 2 or 3 slides per row anymore - is that supposed to be a feature? I observed this with both LibreOffice 3.4.0 and 3.4.1 on Linux Mint 10 and 11 - on 3.3.0 this still worked, which is very useful as a preview/overview when creating long slideshows.

resembles RFE. reopening
in 3.3.4 indeed slide pane allows placing slides in several columns. In 3.6.1 not allows. I am not sure that using slide pane as slide sorter is good idea, but who know. 
Possible workaround: placing slides pane on bottom of screen. There will be more room for slides because width of screen is more than hight.

Thanks for reporting!
I mark this as a valid enhancement request. Therefore: NEW.
Also I set priority a bit lower, because there is 'kind of a workaround' but doesn't provide full coverage of this request.
