           Summary: merge presentation and full screen mode
           Product: okular
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: unspecified
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: okular-devel at kde.org
        ReportedBy: mpartap at gmx.net

Version:           0.8.80 (using 4.2.62 (KDE 4.2.62 (KDE 4.3 >= 20090204)),
Compiler:          x86_64-pc-linux-gnu-gcc
OS:                Linux (x86_64) release 2.6.29-rc3

Imho the current implementation to have seperate presentation and fullscreen
mode is not a good solution: often you need functionality from the other mode
and have to switch and fiddle right there in the middle of your presentation.
Example: presentation mode GUI is perfectly unobtrusive for presentations but
you can't zoom in to highlight a specific detail, nor search or generally
navigate easily for that matter. In full screen mode you can search and zoom
just fine, and when turning of continuous mode you can flip through the slides
as in presentation mode - but you can't get rid of those distracting grey bars
at the side. So in my opinion, the user interface should be overhauled to
better adapt to the needs of real life professional usage - it's usable already
but it can be better. A nice auto-hidable sidebar and putting a
presentation/fullscreen mode icon into the toolbar would be a nice start!
