           Summary: Slide Sorter toolbar doesn't make sense (UI)
           Product: LibreOffice
           Version: release
          Hardware: x86 (IA32)
                OS: Windows (All)
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: minor
          Priority: medium
         Component: Impress

The Slide Sorter toolbar contains two tools: Select and Start from First Slide.
 I don't understand what "Select" means in this context: "Select" as opposed to
what?  As for "Start from First Slide", that's a perfectly fine operation, but
it has nothing to do with the Slide Sorter view of the presentation.
The very important tool that's missing from the Slide Sorter toolbar is the
up-down control for changing the Slides per Row.  That one is in the Slide View
toolbar, but it doesn't do anything unless the Slide Sorter is in view.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. In Normal slide view, choose View - Toolbars - Slide View (if not already
checked).  Click the up arrow on the Slides per Row control to increase the
number.  Nothing happens to the displayed slide, because that control makes no
sense in Normal view.
2. In Slide Sorter view, choose View - Toolbars - Slide View (if already
checked) to remove the Slide View toolbar.  Choose View - Toolbars - Slide
Sorter (if not already checked) to add the Slide Sorter toolbar.  Search in
vain on the toolbar for the up-down Slides per Row control.

Actual Results:  
The toolbar called Slide Sorter is not relevant to the Slide Sorter view.  The
toolbar called Slide View includes a control that is very relevant to the Slide
Sorter view but not relevant to other views.

Expected Results:
Please consider moving the Slides per Row control to the helpfully named Slide
Sorter toolbar.  In my opinion, it's the only control that is really needed in
that toolbar.
