[Libreoffice-ux-advise] Slide sorter in Draw

I've run yesterday in an annoyance that I've heard of, but noticed just
yesterday when working on some slides.  When you use the slide sorter
that you have on your left hand side (in Impress), it quite often
happens to you that instead of just selecting the slide, you also hide
it at the same time.

This is caused by fixed location of the "Show Presentation / Hide
Slide / Duplicate Slide" buttons that fade in when you position mouse
pointer over the slide thumbnail - you run with the mouse pointer from
about the middle of the screen (the slide) to the left to point at the
slide, and you are quite careful about positioning it in the middle of
the thumbnail horizontally; but not vertically.  And just at the moment
you click, the 'Hide Slide' button appears there, and you, well, hide
the slide ;-)


changes the behavior so that it shows the buttons at the top when you
enter the thumbnail in its bottom part, and at the bottom when you enter
the thumbnail at the top.  This way, you have more space to position the
mouse, and higher chance that you'll do what you actually wanted.

Please test in the next daily build; comments appreciated :-)
