Lightroom 4 in MBP: Slide duration in Slideshow module is set to off. But -- selecting Impromptu slideshow either in Library or Develop module shows the slides with timing. To my logic it should not.

This changed in Lightroom 4. Here's what you need to do:

1. Go to Slideshow module.
2. Set duration (and other settings) to your preferences.
3. Save as a new template.
4. Right click on the new template and choose "Use for Impromptu Slideshow"

That works. Thank you. -- Would have taken some time to figure out.

If it's any consolation - this tripped me up too. Brett N. of Adobe straightened me out on the user forum :-)
