    It would be very useful to be able to print out cards

    1) heading on one side; heading and content on the other side
    2) multiple cards like this on one sheet: with the front and back printed in the correct places on the opposite sides of one sheet.

      Hi Jack.

      >It would be very useful to be able to print out card
      Good point. But unfortunately the implementation of such a feature is not clear for me yet. Point (1) is easy to do by duplicating all slides and removing the answers on every second slide. But aligning printing depends on the configuration of the printer itself. Any ideas?

      a work around might be to print one slide per page to pdf, then use another program to print that pdf in reverse order on opposing pages. seems terribly complicated. maybe some arabic right-to-left option could do it? i suppose it is an OOO feature request to be able to customise the flow of pages in the multiple pages per sheet print mode.

      Hey, Holger
      That would be a good idea for point number 1 if there were only 15 or less to edit, but what if there were a lot of words. It would take too much time and hassle to fix every single one.

        Hey, Paul,

        the basic idea is for sure that you don't have to edit anything. Unfortunately the OpenOffice extension API does not support slide reorderings via API currently (which is mandatory to implement a usable flashcard printing).

        Best regards,
