Description Thorsten Behrens (allotropia) 2013-06-06 12:56:29 UTC
Provide, to the presenter, a visual clue that slides will have custom animations and/or a slide transition. That way, the person running the presentation knows when multiple clicks are necessary to show the full slide content.
Comment 1 Thorsten Behrens (allotropia) 2013-06-06 13:25:48 UTC
The general idea is similar to the one described in bug 65456, though there is no existing code in presenter screen for that yet.

Suggestion: stick an icon into sdext/source/presenter/PresenterSlidePreview.cxx rendering, when there is a transition or custom animation set.

Hi Edmond,

thanks for working on that.

I tried it out, but I see two problems here:

* On the current Slide there is no clue that there are animations/transitions
* On the "Next Slide" the image is _in_ the Slide, which is a bit confusing.

I think it would be better to display an Image on top of the Slide, next to the "Current Slide", "Next Slide" text.

What do you think?
