Bug Description


On Windows 7 with Openlp 1.9.7 I have noticed nice feature, that you can switch the whole gui into "live mode", which enables you to focus only on the live items. But I have also noticed that if you are presenting some images, or presentation, it makes the thumbnails very big and quite impossible to use. Same behavior can be reached by resizing the live panel. It would be probably more wise to allow extending the thumbnails until some reasonable size.

I have attached a demonstration picture.

I think this should be considered as bug instead of wishlist.

The larger live/preview panel is set, the larger image/presentation slide becomes.

Making the panels smaller makes the images appear as a list as they are supposed to be
instead of showing one image crazy large.
