Description Drew Jensen 2018-12-21 18:05:37 UTC
Test system Ubuntu 18.04.1 (AMD64), LO RC1 (GTK3)

To reproduce:

1 - Open any Impress file
2 - Ensure that the 'Mouse Pointer as Pen' option is enabled for this file.
3 - Start the slide presentation 
4 - use the PEN to add some INK to the page
5 - Without leaving presentation mode use the context menu to remove all ink from the slide.
6 - End presentation mode and notice that no ink has been left on the slide (none shown in preview mode)
7 - Enter presentation mode again
8 - Use the PEN cursor to add some ink again
9 - End the presentation mode (notice that the ink is now displayed on the preview for this slide)
10 - Enter presentation mode again
11 - Using the context menu again remove all ink from this slide
12 - Exit presentation mode

The ink is till displayed on the slide preview, if the slide is opened for presentation mode the ink will be displayed, if the file is saved at this point or forward the ink will be saved on the slide. There appears to be no way at this point to remove the ink from that slide.

not a solution for this bug, but a workaround could be the enhancement that I just submitted with Bug 122732 : adding an eraser option in the right click menu during a slide show
