Description teelittle 2011-11-16 04:38:32 UTC
Problem description: 
When using Presenter Console on secondary screen to display slide overview, selecting one slide shows this slide on primary screen. 
This is not working when primary screen was displaying the black "end of presentation" message. 

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open presentation with some slides, activate PC on secondary screen
2. go through presentation until the black "end of presentation. Press any key to finish" is shown (loosely translated from German, sorry) 
3. open slide overview from presenter console, double click on any previous slide 

Current behavior:
Primary Screen doesn't change. 

Expected behavior:
Primary Screen should display selected slide. 

Platform (if different from the browser): 
* Discovered on: Windows Vista x64 SP2 [1]
* Reproduced on: Win XP 32bit by Volker Merschmann [1]

reproduced in 3.5.2 on Windows 7 32 bit
Steps to reprodice:
- do steps 1-3 from initial report
at this time in my case selected screen appears on target screen
4. press space on keyboard or click arrow to right on console screen
Expected: we go to next slide or effect
Actually: slideshow exits 
(on Linux not tested)
Comment 2 Jean-Baptiste Faure 2014-01-19 14:17:25 UTC
Changed component to Presentation because PresenterConsole is no longer an extension.

Still reproducible with version 4.1.4 on Ubuntu 13.10 x86-64.

Best regards. JBF

In my case the presentation ends when selecting another slide in the slide preview. Also when changing the presentation by accessing the slides via numbers on the keyboard the presentation will end when changing via the presenter console afterwards. When using the arrow keys everything is fine.
