Display Mode: The term display mode refers to the characteristics of a computer display, in particular the maximum number of colors and the maximum image resolution (in pixels horizontally by pixels vertically). There are several display modes that can be found in personal computer (PC) systems today.
Layout: The way in which the parts of something are arranged or laid out.
Suggestion to rename “Display Mode” to “Layout”

Suggestion to rename “Display Mode” to “Display Layout”
A decision for UX to make.
To me, lay out is telling about the arrangement of the content in the document.
Display is in my understanding more related to the way how the document is shown.
But English is not my native language.
I would assume 'View' would be the correct wording, as we use it in the help.
* Switches to normal view where you can create and edit your slides.
* Switches to outline view where you can reorder slides and edit slide titles and headings.
* Switches to notes page view, where you can add notes to your slides. Notes are hidden from the audience when you give your presentation.
Changed bug heading to be consistent with comment 4.
What is the perimeter of the expected change:
- Text in UI ?
- uno command ?
- source code class name ?
Not sure if the word "View" is correct.
In LibreOffice Writer it is called layout.
LibreOffice Writer → View
→ Print Layout
→ Web Layout
Perhaps “Display Layout” is preferable to “Display View”?

The only thing to change would be the Label/Tooltip in the impress/draw xcu file.

Layout isnt the correct word as we use 'print layout view' ( https://help.libreoffice.org/Writer/Footnotes_Endnotes ).

Still called 'Display Mode'.
Noticed that there is now a View -> Modes Tab Bar menu entry. When changed, would it be appropriate to rename 'Modes Tab Bar'?

I'll fix this shortly. Will be going with 'Display Views' as there are multiple views.

Yes it should likely be changed to 'Views Tab Bar' or did you have a different suggestion?
