Description Katarina Behrens (CIB) 2015-12-04 19:37:52 UTC
As per subject, go to Slideshow > Slideshow settings. In 'Type' frame, one can select what kind of slideshow one wants to see, but from the labels on radiobuttons, at least in English (and I doubt it's better in other languages), it is unclear that:

* first item (Default) is a regular, full-screen slideshow
* second item (Window) is a slideshow run in LO program window
* third item (Auto) will actually run the slideshow in a loop, the time field underneath denoting delay between the last and the first slide 

This ticket is about changing the wording to be somehow more descriptive/clear, for example "Run slideshow" (frame title) > "full-screen" "in a window" "loop and repeat after" ... or somesuch.

Clearly an easy hack
Comment 2 Joel Madero 2015-12-05 07:13:49 UTC
Committed  patch. I accidentally committed two in one but I think it's fine as they are both basic label changes: https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/20406/
