When assigning a layout to a slide in Normal view, all layouts are shown with their names shown above them. When editing the layouts in Slide Master view, the names only appear when hovering over a slide. This makes it difficult to pick a layout by name. This inconsistency in the way the same information (name and small view of a layout) is displayed is unnecessarily confusing and may cause problems when accessing computers remotely, where hovering may not always be fully supported. It is suggested that the names are always be shown above the small view of the layouts.
