Shows the changes needed in the Export and Print dialogs

Currently Impress allows us us to Export/Print only in Slides and Notes layouts.

Depending on the purpose, we may need to export in different layouts:
1. If the slides have many details, the SLIDES view gives the best readability.
2. Share just the OUTLINE with others for approval/editing
3. Print the NOTES layout and distribute as manual for the presentation
4. Print the HANDOUT and give to students to make their own notations.

Therefore, the Export/Print Layout should have a section that allows the user to export more than one layouts (see attached file).

Secondly, the export dialog has some options that are relevant for Writer/Calc; not Impress. Remove them.

Thirdly, the Notes Layout has a major limitation: Its slide pane cannot be resized (it can only be moved around). But often the slide contains so much details that at the default size, it becomes unreadable. Therefore it would be good if we can maximize the slide in the Notes Layout.

OK.

I think at least your 3rd point about the notes layout should be split into its own report.
