Description Jiří Vyšata 2016-01-26 10:25:50 UTC
It is not mainly a bug. It is rather feature request.

While presentation are used two monitors. One monitor (the main one) is for slides of presentation. The second one (auxiliar) is for some useful preparations and informations. One of them is a window for notes. If I prepare notes, I format them to be synoptic - well arranged for easy orientation. But the window for notes on auxiliar monitor cancels all formating information, so that all structure of notes gets away. Could be the text of notes diplayed with formating?

Valid request.

Note: Enhancements are pretty much entirely done by volunteers. I've only confirmed that it's a valid request, it'll take a volunteer to take interest in order to implement. Might be soon, might be never, just depends on what volunteers find interesting (and what skillset they have)
