Description florian 2021-06-17 08:17:56 UTC
In Master mode, I create a Master slide and add a text field with the field command "Folientitel" (slide title). After changing to Normal mode, I enter a title in the slide title field. However, the field command only shows as "Folie 2" (slide 2), which is the slide number but not the title. 

Trying to update the field with Ctrl+a / F9 fails. The only workaround that seems to work involves a pretty complicated Macro (http://www.ooowiki.de/FolientitelZuFolienname.html). 

Maybe consider a redo of the field commands, such that existng text fields of a master slide can be marked as data sources for field commands with customizable names?

Thank you for considering the bug report.

In English UI: insert-Field-Slide Title inserts field <slide-name>.
So this report confuses user created Slide Title by entering text on slide with LO Slide Title which really is Slide 1, Slide 2..unless renamed via right-click in Slide Pane. 
It's obviously different from MSO and DOCX, with consequences seen in bug 103347.
This is already mentioned in bug 118136. 

I'll mark duplicate. See comment 5 there.
