Description ntrrgc 2012-11-26 23:43:39 UTC
Steps to reproduce:
1. Open Impress, create a new presentation.
2. Create a new slide with bullets.
3. Write three lines on it, something like "Line 1", "Line 2", "Line 3" is fine.
4. Slide Show/Custom animation. Be careful not to trig bug 57576 in the process.
5. Add (animation). Pick "Appear" effect.
6. Slide show. Be careful not to trig bug 57580 in the process.
7. Everything ok (if you didn't trig the previous bugs). All paragraphs begin hidden, and every time you click, the next paragraph is shown.
8. Exit slide show mode, and add two more lines to our text box: "Line 4" and "Line 5".
9. Slide show. Did you see it? Line 4 and line 5 didn't get the animation of the parent, so they show from the beginning. You have to exit slide show mode, delete the animation effect, and recreate it.

reproducible with LO (Win7 Home, 64bit)

I would suppose that this is a bug, because if the text box has as a whole an animation, then added lines should also have this animation.

For me, the added line 4 & line 5 do not show at all. After line 3, the show is over.

Is this how it's supposed to work, though?

Still reproduced with 5.5+. But I'm not this is bug at all and why you would expect to inherit animation effects. Like in bug report: you first write and then add animation. Logical request but not sure it's a bug, maybe engancement.

Comment 8 Brian Fraser 2019-03-16 06:16:08 UTC
Additional related issues:
- Changing indentation level of bullet point should adjust to the on-click/with-previous behaviour for the animation in keeping with the text animation setting for the text group ("All paragraphs at once", "By 1st level paragraphs" etc)
- Re-ordering bullet points should reorder corresponding animations

Dear Brian Fraser,
This bug has been in ASSIGNED status for more than 3 months without any
activity. Resetting it to NEW.
Please assigned it back to yourself if you're still working on this.

I am not sure if that is the same bug, but I noticed when adding an entrance animation to bullet points the last bullet point always seems to "lose" its animation when starting the presentation.

Basically, I start the slide and instead of all bullet points being invisible, the last one is visible and has no animation. When I exit the presentation the animation is still listed.

(All these animation related bugs (there's about four that break my workflow significantly) really make me hesitant to use LO in the future)

I added a file showing my issue to this bug. Let me know if I should open a new bug report instead.
Comment 13 gustavo 2021-08-13 12:24:07 UTC
I confirm this bug with the description given by the original poster and the document attached by Kay on the previous comment. This is an important usability issue on Impress.

To recap: if the "Appear" animation is applied to the entire text box the fact that it loses "entireness" when a new paragraph (usually bullet point) is added seems to be a bug.
