Pen inking on the presenter console? [closed]

I frequently use a pen while presenting because I use a tablet pc. Today, I tried to use the new presenter console in the Libre Impress 4.0 using a dual monitor setup. As usual, I switched the mouse cursor to a pen, and drawed a few lines on the presenter console, but my drawing didn't appear on the second screen. When I press PageDn, the drawing appears only shortly before the page changes. So it seems that the drawing works internally, but it just doesn't go into the second screen. Is there any way that I can show my drawing on the second screen? This seems to be a bug, but I want to know if there is any simple workaround such as pressing a key to update the screen.

Hi @tbear,

It sounds like what you want to do is draw on the Presenter Console (screen #1) and have your drawing input show up on the main presentation screen (screen #2). Is that an accurate summary?

I'm not sure that this kind of feature is supported in LibreOffice right now, but it sounds like it would be useful when giving a presentation with Impress. If nobody offers a good solution in the next few days, please file an enhancement bug and provide as much information about this new feature as possible. Don't forget to mark your bug as an 'enhancement'. The QA team will be happy to help you triage your feature request in the bugtracker.
