Description Regina Henschel 2018-07-07 17:55:31 UTC
Start with a new empty presentation
Switch to Master View.
Insert a measure line and a normal line
Switch back to Normal View.
Uncheck option show "Master objects".
Save presentation.
Show presentation.
The normal line is not visible (as expected), but the measure line is visible.

The checkbox "Master objects" belongs to the page style attribute presentation:background-objects-visible. Unchecking "Master objects" sets this attribute to "false". In file format a "background object" is a drawing object, which is contained in a style:master-page element. But for LibreOffice a "background object" is an object, that is assigned to the layer "backgroundobjects", and measurelines are automatically assigned to the layer "measurelines" and hence they are not hidden. These concept of layers is not covered by file format. A presentation file does not need to have layers at all in ODF and there exists no rules for special handling of layers depending on their names.
