Screenshot showing the icon problem

I have inserted audio track to a slide with "Insert -> Audio or Video...". Everything looks fine at first but then I save the file (in native odp format) and open it again in loimpress. At this point the original icon representing video/audio is missing and there is only a tiny square in that place. If I select the object, the selection shows the right size for the icon. I am attaching a picture what is looks like. Furthermore, if I would export this to some other format (or print) then the icon shows as small. I believe that this is a bug.

It seems that the first slide was OK, this problem appeared 2nd slide ->
Comment 2 Jussi Eloranta 2020-08-25 15:12:28 UTC
Here is a link to document that shows this problem:


On linux the audio/video icon on 2nd page and onwards are messed up.

The file showing the problem

I can't reproduce the problem with a fresh file.

Can you consistently reproduce this with new files?

Arch Linux 64-bit
Version: / LibreOffice Community
Build ID: 10(Build:2)
CPU threads: 8; OS: Linux 5.11; UI render: default; VCL: kf5
Locale: fi-FI (fi_FI.UTF-8); UI: fi-FI
Calc: threaded
Comment 4 Jussi Eloranta 2021-04-21 00:12:29 UTC
Yes, I can. I have added new attachment. The second slide shows wrong size for the icon (smaller than originally put there). It gets worse when adding more.

Comment 7 Buovjaga 2021-04-21 20:04:58 UTC
I don't know, why I could not reproduce at first, but after a private exchange with Jussi I was able to see the problem. Simplest steps:

1. Create new presentation
2. Click in the "Click to add text" content text box as if to add text
3. Insert - Audio or Video, pick an audio file
4. Right-click the slide in the Slides pane, Duplicate Slide
5. Save and reload

Now the icon in the second slide has a smaller size.

However, I noticed that this behaviour is gone with this commit:
tdf#130326 related, speed up drawing

I bibisected it with linux-64-7.2 repository.

Jussi: you could try with an appimage of 7.2 to check, if the problem is gone for you as well: https://libreoffice.soluzioniopen.com/

If so, you can change the status to resolved fixed.

I can confirm that the latest development build no longer has this bug. It would be great to include the fix for older versions too. Thanks!

Noel said the fix is not risky to backport to 7.1, so he did it now: https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=130326#c30
