Description Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2011-07-25 02:37:04 UTC
Created attachment 49494 [details]
Sample document, pls. see original report!

Found with "LibreOffice 3.4.1 RC2 - WIN7  Home Premium (64bit) German UI [OOO340m1 (Build:202)]":

When I create a new DRAW slide by strg + drag / drop with the new slide has the same name as the source, what causes problems with navigator.

Steps to reproduce:
1. open attached "sample.odg"
2. Activate 'Navigator' pane if necessary
3. select slide "Neu05" by doble click in Navigator
   Slide No 6 will be marked as selected in Slide View Pane
4. <ctrl>, then drag and drop slide no 6 before slide no 5
5. release mouse button (and <ctrl> inserts new slide, copy of Slide No 6 
   Expected: New slide, with new name
   Actual: New slide also with name "Neu05", see in Navigator:
           "... - Neu03 - Neu05 - Neu04 - Neu05 - Neu06 - ..."
           2 times used "Neu05"
You will not be able to switch between slides "Neu05" using Navigator.

Same problem with Presentation and user defined slide names.

Comment 1 Jeffrey 2011-07-26 07:43:52 UTC
Confirmed for both LibO Master and LibreOffice 3.4  340m1(Build:103) for OpenSuse Linux. Thanks for the steps and attachment.
Comment 2 Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2011-07-26 08:03:37 UTC
Confirmed due to Comment 1

Assign to Thorsten because I don't know anyone for DRAW.

Please feel free to reassign if it’s not your area.
Comment 3 Björn Michaelsen 2011-12-23 13:26:57 UTC
Since all new unconfirmed bugs start in state UNCONFIRMED now and old unconfirmed bugs were moved to NEEDINFO with a explanatory comment, all bugs promoted above those bug states to NEW and later are automatically confirmed making the CONFIRMED whiteboard status redundant. Thus it will be removed.
Comment 4 ign_christian 2013-06-17 08:32:21 UTC
Not reproducible while trying with Draw & Impress (LO - Win7 32bit)
Comment 5 Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2017-12-17 12:36:24 UTC
I still see this problem with Version: Build-ID: 22b09f6418e8c2d508a9eaf86b2399209b0990f4 CPU-Threads: 4; Betriebssystem:Windows 6.1; UI-Render: Standard; Gebietsschema: de-DE (de_DE); Calc: group

Might be related to particular documents or other circumstances, I will do some more investigation.
Comment 6 Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2017-12-17 12:52:19 UTC
Still REPRODUCIBLE with original sample document and  Version: (x64)
Build ID: 77adb770164fd703a31d8e828d777a4f827a5407  CPU threads: 4; OS: Windows 6.1; UI render: default; 
TinderBox: Win-x86_64@42, Branch:master, Time: 2017-12-17_03:10:29

@Björn Michaelsen:
"Not reproducible" means
a) I cant create new slides that way at all?
b) My newly created slide gets a new name "xxx"
c) something else?
Comment 7 Thomas Lendo 2018-09-24 18:43:59 UTC
Is this reproducible with other documents? The issue will hardly fixed if it's a single file problem.
