Description Elias K Gardner 2012-03-17 10:32:22 UTC
This is a feature request.

I often receive presentation documents for an upcoming lecture. During the lecture I then take notes (using the notes tab) on each slide of the presentation. Unfortunately the UI for this places the slide directly above the notes section. This makes the slide very small and hard to read. It would be much better if they were displayed in layout with the slide to the right of the notes. Or even if there was this sort of layout in full screen with just the slide and a small notes section visible.

Sorry if this is the wrong place for this. It seems like a relatively small change that would drastically increase the usefulness of presentation for me and I think many others.

Never confirmed by a QA member (or even a 2nd person). Moving back to UNCONFIRMED. In the future please do not set your own bugs to NEW.

If this problem has been resolved since you reported the bug please mark it as RESOLVED - WORKSFORME to tell us that we no longer have to test the bug. Thanks!

Agreed, a separate dockable kind of 'toolbar' will be handy in this situation.

Kind regards,

Hi guys, no update here.
Is anything moving.
I find the possibility to edit the noted and the page in the same time really useful.
May be the note can be only a text version of it.

It's now march 2020 and it seems the issue is still around...
This would be a critical improvement in usability. The use of notes is indeed quite uncomfortable the way is right now.
