Description Klaus Bucka-Lassen 2012-01-18 01:57:18 UTC
Created attachment 55723 [details]
Simple example with two pages that demonstrates the bug

I have boiled this down to one simple example (attached) where I have created two pages, one with a button to jump to the second page. The first page contains the button which is a group of two objects. 

To reproduce, open the attached presentation, right click the group on the first page and choose "Interaction" from the context menu. Then select "Go to page or object" and the name of the second page ("Test") in the list box below. Press OK.

Confirm this works by clicking the grouped object (either in Edit or Presentation mode).

Now save the presentation and exit LibreOffice. Reopen the just saved presentation and click on the grouped object - it doesn't jump to the second page anymore.

A workaround is to set the "Go to page or object" on one of the individual objects (either "Enter group" or ungroup/regroup to do this).

reproduced in 3.3.4 and 3.5.1 on Fedora 64 bit
changing version to 3.3.4 as most early reproducible
Comment 2 sasha.libreoffice 2012-04-02 08:35:58 UTC
for comparison: in msPP 2007 adding interaction to grouped objects impossible at all. I do not know if ODF format allows this to save.

reproducible with LO (Win7 Home, 64bit)

Comment 5 Klaus Bucka-Lassen 2015-03-06 09:23:13 UTC
Reproduced in LibreOffice on Windows 7.

Exact same behavior as described in the original bug report.

A bit of extra information though: After setting the interaction of the grouped object to "Go to page or object" and assigning the target "Test" you are supposed to save the presentation, close down LibreOffice. Then restart LibreOffice and load the presentation. If you now check the set interaction of the grouped object, it still says "Go to page or object", but the target is gone. Somehow that seems not to have been saved.
