[Libreoffice-ux-advise] "Multiple Files" SWF (Flash) export

hello,

looking at https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=71309
we apparently have in Impress on the SWF Export dialog a "Multiple
Files" option that produces one SWF file per slide (with a bunch of
extra options too)... maybe it's just my limited imagination but this
strikes me as a totally useless feature; why would anybody want that
instead of a single SWF file?

would it be a good idea to remove that?

(it was integrated in a rather under-documented commit
ac9fe009be9867ffda85990425d054a759f42caf in 2002)

No. When you use "Multiple Files" you can show the presentation for
example in IrfanView. You can move forwards and backwards with the
for/back arrows of IrfanView and you have all animations of the single
slide step by step forward and backward! on contextmenu. In browser too
the animations inside the slide are available via contextmenu. If you
use one SWF file for the whole presentation this does not work in
browser and it crashes IrfanView.

Kind regards
Regina
