Description joerg.kubitz@gmx.de 2018-03-24 13:36:53 UTC
Starting a presentation (F5) for a presentation having a slide with a transition configrued on the first page starts the animation without showing the presentator view. The animation can not be canceled.
The Problem also occurs when selecting a slide with a transition during a presentaion and also when showing a transition animation preview in the editor.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create slide with transition
2. start presentation
3. try to cancel animation

Actual Results:  
Pressing ESC rarly interrupts animation. Pressing ESC repeatedly sometimes stop the animation but also the whole presentation

Expected Results:
User should always have full control so should be able to stop an animation by pressing ESC or just clicking on another slide. Clicking on the same slide twice should immediately show the slide without transition.
Animation should start only after showing the presentator view (on the secondary  screen).

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: Yes

Additional Info:
Especially annoying when the translation time is >1 seconds(like scrolling people list at the end of an movie).

The behaviour is even documented in the sourcecode (sd\source\ui\slideshow\slideshowimpl.cxx)

/** this timer is called 20ms after a new slide was displayed.
    This is used to unfreeze user input that was disabled after
    slide change to skip input that was buffered during slide
    transition preparation */

Hi joerg,

Try with
LO Build ID: 79c9829dd5d8054ec39a82dc51cd9eff340dbee8
CPU threads: 2; OS: Windows 6.1; UI render: default; 
Locale: en-GB (fr_FR); Calc: CL
The first Slide Transition is None and delete the previous setting.
Doesn't it work for you?

Dear joerg.kubitz@gmx.de,

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
