Description Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2014-12-23 15:35:48 UTC
In Impress, when you enable slide master view (View > Master > Slide Master) the left slide pane is still titled 'Slides' and would be better titled 'Master Slides' when in this view.

This sounds reasonable and good for me.

Agreed, the "slides" pane's title should depend on whether in master or normal mode. Sounds like an easyhack to me.

Comment 18 Heiko Tietze 2023-05-10 10:31:23 UTC
Too difficult for me.

"Slides" is defined via STR_LEFT_PANE_IMPRESS_TITLE, the LeftPaneImpressChildWindow receives this title in the c'tor at sd/source/ui/dlg/PaneChildWindows.cxx. Could imagine to do something like ::sd::LeftPaneImpressChildWindow->GetWindow()->set_title(<foo>), which doesn't exist, for SID_SLIDE_MASTER_MODE / SID_CLOSE_MASTER_VIEW. The current mode should be easy accessible via "enum class EditMode".
