[Reproducible] with parallel installation of Master "LOdev   -  ENGLISH UI / German Locale  [Build ID: a2b3ee)]"  {tinderbox: @6, pull time 2012-11-13 06:07:28} on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) with separate /4 User Profile for Master Branch: All Styles clicked in 'Tasks-Pane -> Available for use' change view in Tasks pane to "Default", but will not be applied for current slide.

Wrong view in 'Tasks-Pane -> Available for use' will remain until LibO will have been closed and relaunched

I'd first try to bibisect it.

@tbehrens / Björn:
do we have Bibisect data for that version range? <http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Bibisect> does not mention 4.0 Master, may be that page needs some update (WIN bibisecting also is not mentioned)
Comment 6 Petr Mladek 2012-11-23 17:11:34 UTC
Do you see the problem also with DNA.otp and Inspiration.otp from the default set?

It might be related to svg import. It seems that it is broken in master. Most of the presentation templates are using svg pictures. See also the the bug 56402.
Comment 7 Rob Snelders 2012-12-07 19:43:48 UTC
I can't reproduce the problem anymore with Can you recheck with a recent master?
Comment 8 Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2012-12-07 22:16:07 UTC
There still are some preview problems (for what I will submit a different bug), but indeed, thhe reported problem seems to be solved for parallel installation of  "LOdev   -  ENGLISH UI / German Locale  [Build ID:d6579884752c298a18b7cdfcc7d1614b55c9c7c)]"  {tinderbox: Win-x86@6, pull time 2012-12-06 02:46:58} on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) with own separate User Profile 

I hope you can confirm this progress?
