Untangle option to show picture badge and presentation controls in live view
The profile badge appearing in the lower-left corner in the live view is a great feature!
However on some occasion it would be useful to hide it. (For example, I am building multi-presenter deck; but my avatar is showing on all slides, even when others are speaking :-)).
Now I found that I can remove the badge in the live view by unchecking the "Show presentation controls" option. This is not obvious, and one cannot control the badge and controls visibility, separately. Moreover, the controls are shown for the presenter (and not the audience), while the badge is shown to the audience (but not the presenter).
Bottom line: the badge and controls visibility option is tangled up. :-)
My suggestion is to add a separate option, say, "Show profile badge", to control whether or not it is shown on the live presentation, distinct from the presentation controls option.
