Created attachment 165907 [details]
test ODP

Impress has hidden slide and custom slide show, but it doesn't work as it should.

Steps (or use attached ODP for steps 1.-4.):
1.- Create a new impress file, with 4 slides 1, 2, 3, 4
2.- Hide slides 3 and 4
3.- Go to option "Slide Show" - "Custom Slide Show..."
4.- New button, add 3 and 4 to custom group.

5.- Use the check box [ ] Use Custom Slide Show
6.- Press button "Start"

Experienced: slide show starts with slides 1 and 2 (normal slide show)
Expected (like in MSO): slide show starts with hidden slides 3 and 4

This was never fine from LO 3.3 where hidden slides feature was added, crash was fixed with bug 64711. 
Once this is hopefully fixed, Help should also be amended to explain that custom slide show can be used to run hidden slides.

Dear Timur,

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

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://web.libera.chat/?settings=#libreoffice-qa

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!

Warm Regards,
QA Team
