Bug ID: 118135
           Summary: Impress: Unnamed slides should give meaningful name
                    for PDF Indexes/Bookmarks
           Product: LibreOffice
           Version: release
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: medium
         Component: Impress

This is a feature request for usability.

The "Slides" -> "Rename slides" feature is seldom used in my workflow in
crafting a presentation. For now I don't know the practical uses of such slide
names (are they identifiers for scripts/machine codes, or are they meant for
remarks for humans?), but one thing does irritate me.

When the slides are exported to PDF, these unnamed slides would be given
placeholder names like "Slide 1", "Slide 2" etc. (locale-specific), and they
would become names for "Indexes"/"Bookmarks" in PDF, despite the slides already
having titles that can give a better index during export.

An example use case is described in "Steps to Reproduce" below.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. In LibreOffice Impress, create a new, blank presentation.
2. Make four slides (Press Ctrl-M three times).
3. Edit the titles in the *contents* of four slides so they are "Foo", "Bar",
"Baz" and "Baz" respectively.
4. Select the second slide, use "Slides" -> "Rename slides" to name it "Barred"
5. Export this presentation to PDF
6. Open the PDF in Adobe Reader, Evince or whatever PDF viewer you have.

Actual Results:  
If you show the "Bookmarks" in Adobe Reader, or "Index" in Evince's side pane,
you see they are marked "Slide 1", "Barred", "Slide 3" and "Slide 4"
respectively (name varied on your LibreOffice language).

Expected Results:
The "Bookmarks" or "Index" names would be "Foo", "Barred", "Baz", "Baz (2)"
respectively (if the bookmark names don't allow collision).

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No
