Single slide ODP prepared in Win 7 with LO 126.96.36.199.
When running a slideshow in LO 188.8.131.52 under Windows 7, a thin line is visible on the right edge and bottom of the screen. These lines look like they are the either the edges of the desktop or the window behind the presentation and the bottom bar. This condition shows up on two different Dell Optiplex 745 machines and a Lenovo Thinkpad T61. The slideshow displays normally on one of the Optiplex 745 machines (dual booting) when running under Ubuntu 12.04 and LO 3.5.
This problem did not appear in Windows 7 until Upgrading to LO 4.5. I am attaching a single slide presentation created with the Win 7 version of LO 184.108.40.206. This condition does not show up in a screenshot taken with CTRL-Print Screen.
The problem also shows up when the slide show is projected. This is not a bad bug, but presentations presented with this problem look less professional.
Correction. The ODP created in Win 7 does not display normally in Ubuntu. The text font is different and a very dark gray instead of white. I have no idea whether this is related to the bug I have described. It may be the 3.5 rendering of the ODP created in 4.1, but it may be relevant.

Are you sure that Arial font is installed on the machine under Ubuntu? Microsoft fonts are not installed by default on Ubuntu.

Hi, JBF, and thanks for your comments.
First, to be clear, I have a dual boot system running Win 7 and Ubuntu 12.04. I am running LO 220.127.116.11 on the Win 7 side and LO 3.5 on the Ubuntu side. I just rebooted into Ubuntu and opened the sample presentation in 3.5. The font color was fine, but the the font was not Arial, although Arial is installed in LO 3.5 running under Ubuntu. I did confirm that for both Writer and Impress. (Part of the non-free extras, perhaps?) Regardless, the result I obtained earlier with the gray text was not reproduced, and I am now guessing is probably unrelated to the reported bug. It may well be related to viewing the ODP file in 3.5 under Ubuntu that I had created with LO 4.1 under Win 7 or possibly some error on my part.
Regardless, I offer the following additional information. This may be a problem that is an interaction problem between Win 7 and LO 4.1. I had also installed LO 18.104.22.168 on one of our church computers running Win XP, and when I checked this morning, an ODP file displayed fine on that monitor. Also, I tried this file on another Win 7 machine that was running LO 4.0, and it displayed fine. However, when I upgraded that machine to 22.214.171.124. on that machine, the same display issue showed up.
Finally, I also installed OO 4 after the bug report, and the ODP file displayed normally in OO. (Note that I am not trying to engage in a competition between the two programs, but instead, to provide as much information as I can since both share a significant amount of code.)
So in summary:
* I have only observed this bug in Win 7 running 126.96.36.199. and it shows up in three different computers.
* The bug does not show up on an XP install of 188.8.131.52.
* The bug does not show up in Win 7 running OO 4.
* The wrong display of the file in Ubuntu is probably a non-issue. Certainly, my only concern is getting rid of the thin line that shows up on the edge of the screen.
Sorry for the lengthy reply, but I am trying to provide as much information as possible for folks to review. I hope it helps.
First thanks for posting this bug.
I can't really phantom what the problem is. Maybe it is easier when I see it.
As you said it doesn't show up on the screenshot is it possible to take a picture of the screen? So we see what happens.
The bug has been reproduced by the FR QA team. I am waiting for a screencopy.
Best regards. JBF

Here is a screencopy showing the problem on W7.
@Norman: do you get the same thing?

Photo showing the line on the bottom and right side.
Rob & JBF,
I am uploading a photo of what I see on my monitor. The photo is not of the greatest quality, but it does show the line on the right and at the bottom. This photo does not show the required detail to see it clearly, but the lines are actually the right and bottom edges of the desktop. I know this because when I change the desktop background, I can see the color change in the line, and I can see the slight color variations of the task bar along the bottom corresponding to where the buttons are when that program is open. It is almost as though the slide needs to be shifted slightly to the right and down to completely "cover up" the screen. The screenshot you uploaded is similar to this, as you can see. However, I do not see the very thin line that is not next to the edge that shows up in your screen shot.
Due to comments 5,6 and 7, set status to NEW.
Best regards. JBF
This is a bug for me as well, needs to be fixed. Trying to use this in a museum exhibit, not acceptable to have slice of desktop showing. A bit disheartening to see this has been a bug for nearly a year now.
Running a fresh install of Win7 64bit and latest LO download.
I accidentally stumbled onto a potential fix today while viewing a PDF in full screen mode in Adobe Reader 11. I noticed the exact same behavior in the full screen mode there that I did in Impress as described in my earlier reports above. This triggered the thought that the monitor might be slightly out of adjustment, or might be able to compensate. I went into the monitor settings and adjusted the display slightly down and to the right. Each was a 3% adjustment on my Dell monitor which was the minimum I could adjust with one tap, and that was enough to do fix the full screen display in Adobe and Impress, but without changing the full screen view in any other program, including PPT, or in my other than full screen views in any other programs or the desktop.
Since I don't know anything about the programming for full screen, it may be that the full screen width and/or height may need to be adjusted in Impress within the program, since the problem, as stated above, does not exist in PowerPoint. After all, I have still noted the same behavior on three different computers where I tried it, so I don't think it is likely that all three displays would be "off" by the same amount and position. I have not looked for the same issue in Reader on any other computer. So while I have a fix, I hesitate call it "solved" just yet.
Hope this helps.

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.
There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.
If you have time, please do the following:
Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice (5.0.1 or preferably 184.108.40.206 or later)

*** Bug 71520 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
My apologies for the late response to QA Administrators' 2015-10-14 post, but here goes. I did install V. 220.127.116.11 when I got the message, and I have tested to see whether the initial bug remains. It does.
I can make it go away by adjusting my monitor W & H slightly, but I consider that a workaround rather than a fix.
My system remains as described in the initial filing except that I am running Windows 10 on the Windows side rather than Windows 7. In all other respects, my information remains the same.
Not sure that the status field should be marked with the default "NEW", but none of the others seem relevant.
Please advise if I may provide any further information.
