If you change in Impress the line spacing via clicking on a preset in the format menu (like “1.5”), the original setting (“1”) remains checked. The result is that both settings are checked in the menu. Only one would be correct.
The same issue also appears in ‘Format’ → ‘Align’. Impress has this issue since the menu was introduced in LO 5.0 Writer has not the issue, even though it has the same menus (‘Spacing’ and ‘Align’). In LO 5.0 are these menus already implemented in Impress, but not in Writer. Writer has them since LO 5.1, but no issue with them since then.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Impress
2. Choose any template
3. Click on the slide
4. Enter a word (like ‚Lorem‘)
5. Press Enter
6. Enter another word (like ‚Ipsum‘)
7. Mark both lines
8. Open menu format → spacing
Setting should be „Line Spacing: 1“
9. Choose from menu ‚Line Spacing: 1.5“
Spacing changes to 1.5 lines.
10. Open menu format → spacing
11. Now both settings (1 & 1.5) are marked.
12. Choose ‚Line Spacing: 2‘
Spacing changes to 2 lines.
13. All three spacing options are marked: 1, 1.5 and 2
Same with 'Align'
It is possible to put checkmarks on multiple entries in 'Spacing' and 'Align' menu. Like 'Line Spacing: 1" AND 'Line Spacing: 2'.
If I choose a different setting, then the checkmark from the original setting should disappear.

Polite ping: Could somebody check if Calc is also affected? :-) (I don't know Calc. Issue affects Impress, but not Writer.)
Yes, it affects Calc as well, eg. you can set paragraph spacing in comments.
I dug up the commits that added these entries to the menubar, but I have no idea how toggling works, and where that can be specified.
Looks like a good easy hack candidate, adding the respective keywords.
For reference, these commits add the menu entries to the menus:
tdf#91781 Reorganize writer's menu bar
rearrange Impress's format menu bar
Likely ' menu:style="radio"' need to be added to these menu items, like they are there in writer
Thanks for the hint Jay! The question is, why isn't it there for the line spacing menu entries?
