The OpenOffice.org Impress presenter screen
[Development] Posted Oct 31, 2007 14:48 UTC (Wed) by corbet
While OpenOffice.org's Impress is a reasonable presentation program, it
lacks one often-requested feature: the provision of a separate screen for
the presenter which would contain notes, an indication of what the next
slide is, etc. So it is encouraging that the OOo developers have just announced
that this feature is now in development; see this
page for some description of how it is expected to work.
"Implementation of the Presenter Screen extension has begun and there
is an early extension that shows its basic capabilities. The look, layout,
and detailed behaviour of the controls, however, are far from final. This
is where you, dear reader, come into play. You can help us develop this
extension by giving feedback when you try out the developer snapshot, by
telling us what would help you most giving a presentation, or by joining us
in implementing it..."
