Assume that you have a large presentation file. You open it and check the "save" button icon: it has no red dot (the file has not been edited and thus it does not need saving). If you use page-up and page-down to go through the presentation, you can see the whole of it and the file remains clean.
However, if you open the presentation file and immediately move the scrollbar on the slide pane (the one showing the slide thumbnails), after scrolling a sufficient number of slides, a red dot appears on the "save" button icon as the action on the scrollbars has caused the file to incorrectly being marked as dirty.

Sergio, please attach your big presentation and add info from dialo Help->About LibreOffice
As an example, go to https://icbook.eecs.berkeley.edu/resources/powerpoint-slides which contains slides for a textbook.
Open the ppt for Chapter 1: Introduction
Note that ppt files directly open as "dirty". This already seems wrong, but is likely a side effect of the ppt import and being ppt a non native format, to have LibO a bit in trouble with it is acceptable.
Save as odp and close the document.
Open the odp. Scroll the slide thumbnail scrollbar. See the document become dirty at about slide 20.

Just noticed that I have at least one presentation which directly opens as dirty (that is even without touching the scrollbars at all) on LibO 6.1.6. Does not do it on 6.2.4, though.
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
