The Slides model allows you to edit documents intended for presentation (with an overhead projector for example).
A Slides document is composed of a front page (Title, Author and Affiliation) and of a sequence of slides. A slide (Slide) is composed of a Slide_title and of a Body.
The Body of a slide is a sequence of Paragrs which can be of type Paragraph, Picture, Graphics or Other_type (i.e. any other object defined by a structure schema).
The First_page_number attribute defined for the root element (Slides) allows to specify the first number to be used for pagination. The default value is 0. To change this value, select the whole document, then choose the First_page_number entry from the ``Attributes'' menu.
Presentation schemas of the Slides model allow each slide to be presented on one page. As a result, repagination is not required (the ``Pagination'' command is disabled) for a Slides document.
The presentation schemas proposed are as follows:
Whatever presentation schema is chosen, you can tailor the specific presentation using the ``Presentation'' button from the menu bar and the color palette.
When you want to print slides on paper (for proofreading for example), they can be printed as a whole. To do this, click on ``Change format'' from the printing form and select the required number of pages per sheet (2 or 4). Do not forget to change the format when you want to return to normal printing (one page per sheet).
