Subject: Re: [office] Questions about family=graphic versus family=presentation


This is an abreviated version of the answer sent directly to Thorsten 
for the OpenDocument List...

A Presentation document can have multiple graphic styles for shapes. 
There is only one set of graphic styles for each document.
An impress document also has a fixed set of presentation styles. These
styles are available for every master slide in a document. F.e. in a 
document with two master slides there are two different instances of the 
presentation style 'title'. A shape that has the presentation style 
'title' assigned usesthe style from the set that is assosiatet with the 
maste slide used by the slide that this shape is on.
This allows automaticly switching styles for presentation shapes when
assigning a new master slide. Now to you're questions, what is a 
presentation shape.
Basicly a presentation shape is a shape that has a presentation style
assigned. In the impress UI you can't set presentation styles by hand. 
They where automaticly assigned for placeholder shapes on master slides 
and also for the corresponding shapes on slides with a presentation 
layout, f.e. title, outline, e.t.c.
The style is the same for empty placeholder objects.

> Questions: 1. What is the use of objects in family presentation? 2. 
> For which objects should family presentation be used?

Shapes that have a style from the family presentation get theire style
from the presentation style set of the assigned master slide.
They should be used for shapes that are part of a presentation layout.

> 3. Are placeholders objects to be used as templates?

Placeholder objects on the master slides serve as a position template
for presentation shapes on the slides

> 4. Are objects on a masterpage family presentation?

Standard shapes on the master slide can have the presentation family
'background objects' This is handy to change the style of all non 
presentation shapes on a master slide to
fit its design. If they had the graphic style 'default' then you had to
hard format all shapes on the master slide to fit the overall design of 
the master slide.
