Description Philippe Jung 2015-06-03 12:23:37 UTC
I have a presentation. 

Tabs Normal, Online, Notes, Handout, Slide sorter are active. They display my presentation.

I activate View -> Master -> Slide Master
1) Master Pages in sidebar should be activated
2) The normal tab is replaced by the selected master page. Outline, Notes, Handout, Slide Sorter are still selectable. They still display my presentation. => these tabs should be disabled.
3) The only way to get "Normal" tab back with my presentation (appart from Close Master view in toolbar) is View -> Normal BUT when Normal is already selected. View->Normal if, for exemple, outline is selected, switch to Slide Master and activate Normal tab. Selecting View->Normal again ends to Slide Master mode. => Slide master should be a mode, like Normal, Outline, ....

In draw, it's a radio choice between Normal or Master mode. No submenu
Comment 2 Philippe Jung 2015-06-03 12:58:27 UTC
If I activate Master Notes, then Master Slide, I cannot exit Master notes mode appart from going to Master Notes page and selecting "Notes" in the menu. Close Master view button is not active.

Yes when in Slide Master view, the normal tab should be renamed 'Slide Master' and 'Notes' should be 'Notes Master', while the others (Outline, Handout, Slide Sorter) should be hidden.

The slide pane should be relabelled 'Slide Masters' (bug 87638) and a different color should appear on the UI for further visual indication that the user is in Slide Master view (bug 87905).

While in normal view we show entries for Normal, Outline, Notes, and Slide Sorter.
While in master slide view, we should show entries for Normal, Notes, and Handout.
