Description Zoltan Gre 2014-08-15 19:22:50 UTC
Problem description: 
This is a feature request rather than bug.
I suggest to have more options to play media files on a slide: e.g. how many times to repeat it.
Steps to reproduce:
1. ....
2. ....
3. ....

Current behavior:

Expected behavior:
I used slides for foreign language dictation testing. Now I need to make a lot of extra work to prepare the slides for it and it should be easier to do.
When I insert an audio or video file on a slide I want to be able to set how many times the slide should be repeated and then move automatically to the next slide.
I also would like to set the time pause between repeating the same media file on the same slide.
For example: play an audio file 5 times with 0.8 seconds pause between them. After the last play, move to the next slide.

Actually it would be even better to create several settings that I can just apply to all or selected slides.
e.g.
Beginner level setting:  repeat media 5 times with 1.2s pause between them
Intermediate level setting: repeat media 3 times with 1s pause between them
Advanced level setting: repeat media 2 times with  0.45s pause between them

I would like also to be able to choose to hide or show each text box on the slide  - as part of the setting above.
So when the audio plays during the test, some text is hidden while others are shown. When I show the duplicated and modified same slide to the students to check the correct solutions, I want to make the text visible like a subtitle.

Thank you

Seems like a reasonable request. There does not appear to be any simple method of having inserted media objects cycle (repeat) with a specified delay between each cycle. There are currently entrance and exit effects and media triggers (start and end) under Animations.

Given the examples this would appear to be a type of cycle theme and may require a separate enhancement request, but left for now. Either option (cycle or cycle themes) may require an amendment to the ODF specification.

Status set to NEW. Summary amended for clarity. Platform set to All/All. Severity set to enhancement.
