Slideshow won't enable form controls to be used

Standard installation.

You cannot use form controls in slideshow mode in impress, those render as plain images but no interactivity is available, related macros wont run.

I am attaching a .odp file that works fine in edit mode, but not in slideshow mode (you should enable macros to run first).

LO user list shows it was asked in 2011, but not implemented yet:


Please enable this funcionality, that would be a great improvement in LO.

I confirm. It is an old Issue if I'm not wrong

I set status to new
