could you look at this bug
It's about how to edit Autoplay Presentations (which automatically start
and end). At the moment it's not possible to edit them.
I first created a patch  that just leaves LibreOffice open at the end
of the presentation so you can edit it. This one was rejected. The
reasons are in the comment.
Now I created a new patch  which does the following:
- If the presentation is played until the end, Impress will be closed,
as it is now.
- If the presentation is cancelled (ESC or Context Menu->Close), the
editor window is shown and you can edit the presentation.
Now a user suggested  to copy the behaviour from Microsoft. It means,
that you can only edit those files when you open them via File->Open. If
you start them by double-clicking, they will autoplay.
Personally, I don't like the last suggestion, because it's just not
intuitive. I would not try that if I wanted to edit an Autoplay
I think that the second suggestion is the best one, because that's the
first thing I would try if I wanted to edit such a presentation.
What do you think?
