In reaction to the incredibly poor usability inherent in standard presentation (“Powerpoint”) programs (Keynote is an exception), I wrote an article addressing each of these problems and implemented a dummy prototype using PyQt4. As this is a Qt4 implementation, the audience were the KPresenter developers, although it may be too radical for this project. Many KPresenter users are previous MS Powerpoint users, and familiarity is a major consideration for this user-base.
