You mean the "Preparing preview" message? I do see it, but in "Used in this presentation". Seems like the same root cause, so setting to NEW.

Hmm, now I noticed that it did successfully prepare the preview after waiting longer.
Comment 3 Harald Berger 2018-02-11 14:34:05 UTC
Hi Buovjaga, i don't no what you mean. Please look again at the dropbox (URL), there  is a new picture with the overall view, named "IMPRESS LO-V6-0-0-3_Gesamtbild.png". There is no modification after waiting. I hope i can help you.

Created attachment 139787 [details]
Screenshots showing the preview stages

I had to wait a long time, maybe 20 minutes for the preview to appear

I was going to bibisect this, but I cannot reproduce this with bibisect-win32-6.0. Still repro with master on Win.

Dear Harald Berger,

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 http://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
