Hi all,
SimpleSlide is very useful for novice users so I do use it.
I'm afraid these might be known but I encountered few problems.

When we use a style BigNumber or Embossed, an error occured:
---------
tex error       > tex error on line 87 in file
/usr/share/texmf/tex/context/third/simpleslides/s-simpleslides-BigNumber.tex:
! Undefined control sequence

l.87 \beginOLDTEX
---------
I modified s-simpleslides-BigNumber.tex as follows:
comment out from line #87 to #99
% \beginOLDTEX
...
% \endLUATEX
except line #98
\definefontsynonym  [BigNumberFont] [name:texgyreherosbold]
then it seems to work fine.  But I suspect unconditional
definition is not good so I'd like to know the correct fix.

Another problem is with style Split. Browsing simpleslides.pdf,
date, author, title and page number would be displayed on each
slide but we can't see them in fact except page number.

It seems, e.g. the following in s-simpleslides-Split.tex
fails to get the "date".
draw
\sometxt[simpleslides:sometxt:left]{\getvariable{simpleslides:title}{date}}
I think it is very helpful to see date, title on a slide
so I'd like to know the fix.

Thanks in advance.
Best regards,
Atsuhito Kohda
