different forward and reverse durations #148

When I create a Sozi presentation and set the transition-duration to 0 ms, moving forward in the presentation behaves as expected. Moving backward, however, still has a transition-duration of something like 1. second.

If there is only one field for duration length, shouldn't it apply to both the forward and reverse transitions?

there's 2 possible ways to navigate through a slideshow:

  • up down arrows (= no transition at all)
  • left and right arrows (= left and right click)

Maybe this can be helpful.


Hi JurgenG,

Thanks for the suggestion. Under normal circumstances, I would use the up and down arrows.

The problem is that I'm using one of these slideshow remote controls that only have a left and right arrow and I'm not sure that re-programming it is feasible in the time allotted for a presentation.

Currently, user-defined transition properties are applied only when following the "normal" sequence of the presentation.
In all other cases (including moving backwards), a default transition is applied.

I did not consider this as a problem until some presentations I made recently.
I understand that it can be unexpected and counter-intuitive.

I have marked this issue as a bug. Hopefully, it will be fixed in the next release.

Fixed in the current development tree: see commit 72b4ce6
