Description Tamás Zolnai 2017-08-14 11:29:31 UTC
When I start Impress and the template dialog is opened (I have a set the optiont to behave like that), I see that all templates are displayed without a name (see screenshot). Names get to displayed if I scroll down in the template dialog for example.

I experience the same issue on Windows and on Linux.

1. Make template dialog opened by starting Impress (Tools -> LibreOffice Impress -> General -> Start with template selection checkbox
2. Close Impress
3. Start Impress

Actual Results:  
Template name are not displayed when template dialog is opened.

Expected Results:
Template names should be displayed.

Reproducible: Always
