Status Bar

Status bar

The status bar, positioned at the bottom of the Impress window, contains information that you may find useful when working on a presentation.

From left to right, you will find:

  • A general information area, which changes depending on the selection: For example:
    • Text area—”TextEdit: Paragraph x, Row y, Column z”
    • Charts, spreadsheets—”Embedded object (OLE) ‘ObjectName’ selected”
    • Graphics—”Bitmap with transparency selected”
  • The position of the cursor or of the top left corner of the selection measured from the top left corner of the slide.
  • The width and height of the selection or of the text box where the cursor is.
  • The zoom level of the workarea.
  • A modified flag, showing a star when the file needs saving.
  • A flag indicating if the document is digitally signed.
  • The slide number currently displayed in the workarea.
  • The slide master associated to the slide currently in the workarea.
Image:Tip.png Right-clicking on the slide master area of the Status bar you can quickly apply a different slide master to the current slide.

In case you do not need the information in the Status Bar you can hide it by selecting View > Status Bar from the main menu.
