\...\soffice.exe --show "praesentation.odp"
in windows command line does not work. The presentation does not show in presentation mode. It shows in edit mode.
This prevents using impress in kiosks, where the presentation must start in display mode, not edit mode.
Seems that soffice.exe is reaaly broken. See bug 51639 for another borked parameter.
Hi. On Windows the correct option is "-show" (one dash). With this I couldn't reproduce any problems using 3.5 or master (188.8.131.52.alpha+) on Windows Vista or openSUSE 12.2. Could you please confirm whether using "-show" works?
Please see http://help.libreoffice.org/Impress/Showing_a_Slide_Show for documentation on this.
Thanks for looking at.
Indeed -show works in 3.5.4 under windows
However soffice --help clearly states us to use --show.
So either we fix the help screen or we fix soffice binary. But by the way, soffice.exe has many other flaws (e.g. --version).
Renamed the bug for clarity.
I would suggest implementing --show in addition to -show for consistency with other options, rather than changing the documentation. (Similar to -version which informs you that it is deprecated.)
It was fixed by Caolán, 4fc8af89257436b9cad70de574a166aa11ec42f1
--show works as well as deprecated -show
