Description DarkTrick 2019-01-17 07:05:01 UTC
It's not possible to select a slide through the "Slide bubble", that appears, if the mouse cursor is hovering over a slide. 

I recorded a short clip showing the behaviour:
(unfortunately my mic wasn't recorded, so you don't here, that I clicked the mouse button about 200 times )

Steps to Reproduce:
Current behaviour:

1. Create a presentation.
2. Make the "slides" sidebar being shown.
3. Insert so many slides to make them exceed the screens vertical (e.g. 20).
4. Select slide number 1.
5. Move the cursor the last slide shown on the screen.
6. A bubble will appear like ("Slide 7").
7. Now try to select the slide through the bubble.

Actual Results:
8. You cannot select the slide through the bubble.

Expected Results:
@8. Selecting a slide through a bubble is possible

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

OpenGL enabled: Yes

Additional Info:
Happens with and without hardware acceleration (probably OpenGL)

Thank you for reporting the bug. I cannot confirm this because the "Slide Bubble" doesn't appear in my slide.

I tested on

See the video. I have the same version and also linux, but in my case it is working.
Comment 3 DarkTrick 2019-01-19 08:54:35 UTC
In the video you're only hovering over the slides in the middle of the screen. Try to over over slide 8. Your tooltip might then appear below the mouse pointer.
Comment 4 BogdanB 2019-01-22 19:09:30 UTC
My tooltip is little in my case, maybe is up to the OS you use or settings...
But in my case the tooltip is runnig from my mouse... See the left bottom corner...

I'm on XUbuntu. So I guess this is rather a bug for XFCE
Comment 7 Buovjaga 2019-01-26 20:18:32 UTC
As there is suspicion OpenGL rendering is in use, please copy and paste here the contents of your Help - About.

Change back to UNCONFIRMED after you have provided the information.

Problem also appears without OpenGL

Comment 9 edera 2019-09-25 08:22:34 UTC
the tooltip of the "slides" panel get in the way.
Clicking in the middle of the slide thumbnail
should select that slide.
Instead the click is swallowed by the tooltip.
Build ID: 20(Build:2)
CPU threads: 6; OS: Linux 4.12; UI render: default; VCL: kde5

It necessary either to click outside the tooltip (not practical),
or use keyboard.
Comment 10 edera 2019-09-25 08:31:33 UTC
To be more precise: 
The issue appears here because the tooltip is not below the slide thumbnail,
but centered on it.
Apparently that depends on the environment.
Comment 11 edera 2019-09-25 13:16:29 UTC
They solved a similar issue in calc:
that might be relevant ?
