[Issue] Can I transition between slides by mouse wheel?

Postby frijolie » Sun Jan 18, 2009 7:16 am

Hey all,

I'm trying to get Impress to transition through my slides--in "design mode" and within the Workspace--by hovering my mouse pointer over the slide and scrolling my mouse wheel up/down. I'm used to this functionality in PowerPoint and would like it replicated in Impress. Currently, by scrolling the mouse wheel, it only vertically scrolls over the current slide. I would like it to iterate through each of my slides in the Presentation. I hate having to click on the individual slide in the "Slides Pane" and don't want to start a slide show just to get to the next slide smoothly. I've checked under Tools > Options and cannot see any setting that I believe applies. I've also Googled it and read through the Impress user guide all to no avail. Can anyone tell me if this is possible? I'll bet it's just some checkbox somewhere that I'm missing but I can't find it buried anywhere. Please help...

Hi and welcome to the forums.

I don't think that this can be done. I'm afraid you'll have to click...

If this has answered your question please go to your first post and use the Edit button, and add [Solved] to the start of the title. You can use the green tick icon at the same time if you like.

I've removed your [Not solved] tag. Just keep your thread as it is. A green checkmark for a not solved thread is rather strange.

You should ask for it if it hasn't been done already: [Tutorial] Reporting bugs or suggestions.

Good marketing method indeed!
