togehter with the bug https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=56766 this creates a full blocker. I cannot use Impress for presentations when I need to show slides in the layout of my company (data series in column charts area filling with gradient.
Therefore I change importance to highest and blocker.

These 2 bugs created a 1 - 2 day loss

Comment 3 Petr Mladek 2012-11-26 12:21:12 UTC
Same as in the bug #56766. The difference between normal and slide view is usually caused by the hardware acceleration. It might help to disable the checkbox "Tools/Options/View/Use Hardware Acceleration".

Could you please attach sample document that shows the problem? It could help a lot with fixing.

I can't confirm this easily without the test documents but I guess that this is an older bug. I guess that the disabled acceleration would help => it should not block the next bugfix release with other useful fixes => reducing the severity a bit.

We are sorry that this bug caused so many troubles to you.

Although I  am not an LibO expert but I can follow your argument that this bug is the same as bug #56766..
I added a sample Impress file to bug bug #56766.
I just hope the bug fix comes soon.

Is there somewhere a list of bug fixes in a release?

I see a very obvious gradient problem, what might be similar to "Bug 57238 - Gradients in calc graphs elements not shown when inserted in an impress file and slideshow is started"

I wonder whethe this one is a DUP or at least related to "Bug 35680 - FORMATTING: Gradient rendered wrongly in presentation mode when groupedBug 35680 - FORMATTING: Gradient rendered wrongly in presentation mode when grouped
Comment 6 Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2012-11-26 18:02:40 UTC
Already reproducible with LibO 3.4.5 (may be more early), worked fine with OOo 3.1.1, so at least regression concerning early OOo. But AOOo 3.4.1 suffers from the same problem, so I assume "inherited from OOo".

Not reproducible using attached files in Bug 56766 (LO - Win7 32bit).
Perhaps it's been fixed
