Hi Chynte!

after following this mailing list for a while, today I want to ask for
your opinion about two features I miss in Impress.

The first feature is linked to the custom slide shows. [...]
The problem is, that the automatic
page side numbering is not able to handle custom slide shows.
Mmh, I don't know a solution for this. Sorry :-\

But since Impress usually supports jumping to other (hidden) slides in
the presentation in any case, this might be required ... even if you
exclude (e.g.) slide 5, you can change to slide 5 by "5 ENTER" (another
feature important for some other users). To solve this, it requires a
bit more work ...

The second missing feature is support for automatic ToC- and
Index-Tables as they are implemented so nicely in Writer.
Concerning the ToC - what is missing when using the "Insert - Summary
Slide" feature?


What is your opinion? Do you agree that these two features could be
helpful for others?
I think yes - do you know whether there are issues (request) for this at
OOo or LibreOffice? This might help to evaluate how much this is
requested by others as well.


Hi Christophe,
thanks for your fast reply!
There are several things I miss with the "Insert - Summary Slide" feature:
1. As far as I know it does not show the slide number
2. It is not so "handy" in usage, that the Summary Slide contents is based on the selected slides, 
specially if you presentation contains up to 200 slides (the Summary should contain only the chapter slides, 
not each).
3. It is not dynamic. Since the presentation "lives", very often we add slides, move them or delete 
some. That would mean, we have to create then always a new summary slide manually by collecting the title 
slides and must reformat it again ...

Before asking on this list, I searched the Internet for a solution for my issues. I found "a lot 
of" similar requests from OOo and PowerPoint users. But it's hard for me, to give a number.
Microsoft Support team created a VBA Macro to adress the "page number on custom slide show" issue 
in PowerPoint. So it seems, there are more people asking for it.
