Description Bastián Díaz 2014-10-12 15:54:29 UTC
pause a presentation is confusing, as the screen automatically turns black, without access to more options. although this option is useful in principle, it does not fit all cases, and sometimes forces use the desktop computer to solve the problem.

LO-Impress allows the display in black or white, or pause a presentation (when timed). For these three options are different forms of use, for example:
• black screen: used as a backdrop at the start of a presentation or to stop a presentation to answer questions through other means (board)
• white screen: when I use the blackboard is facing the projector, or when I find myself in very dark rooms (so you can explain something without spending any time turning up the lights and losing the thread of the story)
•pause: when using timed presentations and answer questions should a particular slide.

It would be useful to differentiate between these three options in the interface of "impress-remote".

Thanks

Sounds like one for UX.

Don't really get the issue. You can repeat a slide show (slide show settings > presentation mode = loop and repeat) where you can define a pause. For automatic presentation of the slides you have to define the transition (maybe in prior versions it was possible to track and reply the timings, don't remember).

Could you please explain what you mean? And what is v 2.2.1?

Don't think we should make Impress a swiss army knife and have different types of pauses. The current pause function seems to be sufficient for most users. => WFM
