Description Jean-Sebastien Bevilacqua 2019-12-05 11:13:24 UTC
I found a bug in Impress since version 6.2. Some Impress file may open only white.

I join a test file you can open, and you will see it only white.

Bibisection:        -> Works well -> Not working        -> Not working        -> Not working

The problem starts with version 6.2.x, it works well with version 6.1.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the joined file
2. It's just white

Actual Results:
It's white

Expected Results:
It should be renderd with images and texts

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Bug 128730 has a macro to repair the document.

Jean-Sebastien Bevilacqua: Can you tell something about the history of the document? Was it involved in a crash or recovery? Which versions were used to save the document? Are third-party applications used to save the document?

I still know no scenario that produces such documents.
