--- Comment #7 from V Stuart Foote <vstuart.foote at utsa.edu> ---
Agree 4:3 should be replaced with a 16:9 default. Also believe existing library
of 4:3 templates should be scaled and adjusted as needed. Any new template
submissions should be at 16:9 

>From a practical side, 4:3 projectors are increasingly rare. I moved my
classrooms to 16:9 FullHD projectors years ago, and faculty laptops and
workstations have been 16:9 almost as long.

So the UI authoring default should evolve to match common presentation
equipment and avoid distortion of slide when scaled. The loss of horizontal
space to the UI is negligible as the Sidebar deck can be collapsed, while
emerging MUFFIN interfaces provide alternative(s) to the Sidebar.
