Hello OfficeUser, *,
I can confirm this bug with several parallel installed LO versions on

OS: Debian Testing AMD64

back to LibreOffice 3.3.0 
OOO330m19 (Build:6)
tag libreoffice-
(parallel installed, following the instructions from https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Installing_in_parallel/Linux)

but also from

AOO: AOO412m3(Build:9782)  -  Rev. 1709696
2015-10-21 09:51 - Linux x86_64


AOO: AOO411m6(Build:9775)  -  Rev. 1617669
2014-08-13 09:23 - Linux x86_64

but not with

OOo: 3.2.0
OOO320m12 (Build: 9483)

so this bug seems to be introduced somewhere betwenn OOo 3.2.0 and AOO 4.x.x serires ... Alas, I have no other AOO/OOo versions installed to test it further ... :(
Are you sure, that this has worked for you in earlier versions of LO than

As I can confirm this, I will set the status to "New" and the version to "Inherited from OOo". If you think, I am wrong with the last one, please try to answer my above question ... ;)

Susobhang, please take a look.
Comment 3 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2016-08-08 20:28:18 UTC
This is inherited from OOo, as doing so in the page setup dialog returns the same result.
Comment 4 Susobhan Ghosh 2016-08-08 20:33:20 UTC
The problem is in the Page Thumbnail Preview Pane on the left, and not the actual LO sidebar.
Comment 5 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2016-08-09 03:07:00 UTC
So its not limited to just the orientation, the same thing happens when changing the page/slide size, but interestingly it doesnt happen with page/slide margins.

Also the workaround is to click within the page/slide pane and the thumbnails will be refreshed.
Comment 6 OfficeUser 2016-08-09 18:29:58 UTC
@Yousuf: Thanks for your additional information. I would like to add that not only Undo but also Redo is affected.

If you...

- Change the page orientation
- Undo
- Click within the page/slide pane (the work around that you describe)
- Redo

the bug is triggered too.

Dear OfficeUser,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://kiwiirc.com/nextclient/irc.freenode.net/#libreoffice-qa

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
