[upstream] [hardy] Non-fullscreen slide show shortcut

Bug #237421 reported by Alexander Jones on 2008-06-04
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
openoffice.org (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: openoffice.org

It's a pain in the arse to have to click through slides when not viewing a slide show "properly", what with the scrolling around and the squiggly underlines to highlight "spelling errors", and the text box frames, and Click here to add text, etc.

In scenarios where one wants to revise lecture slides, a "View Slide Show (windowed)" would be pretty useful so I could use the rest of my screen.

You can already do this, unless I misunderstand what you want. Just go to Slide Show -> Slide Show Settings and change type from Default to Window. Please let me know if this solves your problem.

This solves the problem, but it would be nice if there was a way to do it without having to change the settings permanently. I.e. hold shift whilst clicking "View Show" or pressing F5.
