Description Laurent Balland 2023-11-01 08:50:44 UTC
Description: slide number, date/time and footer placeholders have been removed from master slides of Grey elegant template. It takes extra steps to add them back

Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a new presentation with bundled template "Grey elegant"
2. Insert > Header and Footer
3. Check "Slide number"
4. Click "Apply to All"

Expected behavior:
Slide number should be added to all slide.

Actual behavior:
None slide displays its slide number.

Extra steps to restore normal procedure:
1. View > Master Slide
2. Master slide where slide should be added
3. Slide > Master elements
4. Check placeholders you expected, OK
Repeat for each slide master

There may be some exceptions, like title slide, which does not require slide number. Other templates, such as Freshes Impress template, have placeholders on most of master slides, except title slide.

Other improvements:
- font is different between example texts and master pages
  - expect: same font
- Notes do not show slide (except for first master page)
  - expect all Notes should show the slide
