Description ntrrgc 2012-11-27 00:45:36 UTC
Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a new presentation in Impress. 2 slides is fine.
2. Create an animation in the second slide, i.e. put the appear effect in the content text, one line of text each click. Take care with bugs 57576, 57581 and 57582.
3. Slide show/Rehearse timings.
4. The first slide shows. A timer appears at the bottom. Nice. The user talks about this slide.
5. Click.
6. The second slide shows.

What a user could expect:
7. The timer appears, and it records the time the user expended talking of that slide.

What happens instead:
7. The timer does not appear until all the animations have ended. Once that happens, our user has almost ended talking about that slide. Then is where the timer starts accounting time.
Our user may have talked for 1 minute about that slide, but only the 10 seconds he spent on the last point were accounted.

Still the same.

The current behavior is non-sense.  The timer shouldn't start after all the animations are shown.  It should start at the beginning of the slide shown and ended when all the animations are displayed.

Sorry, I just realized that I may test with wrong way.  The test way in comment 8 was in the console mode (with current slides, next slides and total timer).  The "original behavior" was in "Slide Show" -> "Rehearse Timings".  It was unchanged, i.e., still start timing only after all the animations were played in that slide.
