On Creating Slides
By mprove on Dec 10, 2009
FYI_ I've developed the habit to use the context menu to create new slides. And I do it in the context (read the location of the click) of a slide that already uses the desired layout. Then the only operation I have to do is to drag the slide to the final position (if it is not already there.) So please consider the following:
- do not open the task pane if a new slide is created. I do not need it. It is just annoying.
- select the new slide if a new slide is inserted in Slide Sorter mode. Currently --in Mac OOo 3.1.1-- the first slide gets selected and the slide sorter scrolls to the top. Grrrr. Did I mention that the task pane opens as well. Grrr2
- I appreciate that you want to reduce the number of different layouts. Do you? I hope so. I typically just use #1, #3, maybe #4 or #5. Do you have statistical data which layouts are actually used? The empty slide is the best in stock to place a full screen image --BTW_ this is the only layout that is currently missing, a full screen image.
