Key Assignment #191
Currently SoZi assigns the left/right keys for moving backward/forward and the up/down keys for "jumping" backward/forward. This causes issues when using some types of wireless presenters that are usually optimized for Powerpoint and only have 2 keys that represent up/down keys. Thus one cannot "move" but only "jump" between the sozi slides with these presenters (no animation).
As a quick fix I did this by myself by just exchanging the "case 37" to "case 38" and "case 39" to "case 40" and viceversa in the "script id=sozi-script" section of my svg. However this is not very userfriendly as it has to be done manually for each presentation and each time it is saved from Inkscape.
In a previous version of Sozi, Up and Down procuded the same effect as Left and Right.
It can be useful if the person who creates the presentation and the person who plays it are the same.
I propose the following change:
Talking about presentation remotes and PowerPoint, I have another suggestion: Lots of remotes implement the "b" button, which makes PowerPoint display a blank (black) screen. This is a very usful feature if one wants to pause a presentation or include "offline" content.
While a) is probably simpler and most PowerPoint compatible, b) seem to better suit the design of Sozi and would offer more flexibility to users. Instead of a black screen (which is still trivial to implent), they could also have a "standby screen" showing a corporate logo, the presentation's title, or something else (like an animated fish tank ;-).
I would definetely love to see "b" support in Sozi - whether it's the a) or b) flavor, I don't care.
