Description Kuba Orlik 2019-05-17 14:36:56 UTC
While presenting, every time I disconnect and then re-connect the external display/projector, the presentation resets to the first slide. I'd expect it to not do that and just let me continue with my presentation

I start with Presentation console on 2 displays. When I disconnect external display, it takes a time to switch back to a single display, but it resumes. When I re-connect the external display, it also resumes.
Tested in Mint 19 Cinnamon that is gtk3.

Kuba, please test with master 7.0+ from https://libreoffice.soluzioniopen.com/index.php/daily-version/

I cannot reproduce it in the new version. Will report again if it happens in the future.

Then let's set to WFM for now.
