Hi Sophie,

In other apps (writer, calc), there is only one type of document that can be
modified, while in impress/draw we have two types of documents that can be
modified - page/slide and master page/slide. So is changing between modifying a
slide and modifying a master slide a change of view? I think so, as the view of
what is available in the document area has changed.

Checking the menus in other presentation apps (powerpoint, wps presentation,
iwork keynote, google docs), they all place Slide Master under the View menu.

> Also, what about moving the Display functions from the Slide menu to the
> View menu?

The display functions (Display Background of Master, Display Objects from
Master, Master Elements) are a per-slide/per-master feature, so they are not
suitable for the View menu.
