Screenshot showing the horizontal constraint on text in Outline View
In Outline View in Impress, the text is constrained to a very small width, rather than being allowed to expand to the width of the application window. This makes working with the text awkward, and makes it more difficult to get a sense of the flow of ideas that Outline View should make easy.
I have attached a screen shot from a 24" monitor. As you can see, The slide text is constrained to about 1/3 of the available screen space. The text should be allowed to take up as much horizontal space as possible.
Thank you for reporting this improvement. Seems valuable to me.
Got the same problem with 220.127.116.11 on Ubuntu 12.04 x86_64
The width can be changed here:
But the problem is that I can't find a function that can give me the width of the docked-window.
I have created a patch that widens the size.
But it is still a fixed size.
The Web View feature in Writer can expand text in the Window. Maybe this is a way to also implement it in Impress Outline View ?
