Presentation option / config to start with current or first slide does not have impact on presentation mode, it always starts with the first slide.
Furthermore, I am not even able to disable the option to check the behaviour as it stays on on opening config/options (even when disabled and closed), not working.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Go to Options->Impress->General->Presentation->
2. enable Always...
3. go to presentation mode (F5), first slide is shown
first slide is shown
user is not able to disable/enable option at their will (stays always checked)
currently selected slide is shown
user is able to disable/enable option at their will
Operating System: Ubuntu
Version: 18.104.22.168 release
Thanks for reporting!
I can reproduce this behavior, tested using Mac OSX 10.9 with LibreOffice Version: 22.214.171.124 Build ID: 70feb7d99726f064edab4605a8ab840c50ec57a
Also with Version: 126.96.36.199.alpha1 Build ID: 496e2be9dd6eb96d120d412760422eaa904b7f71
Build ID: 70feb7d99726f064edab4605a8ab840c50ec57a
also has the same problem.
As we have a option to start from current slide, i can't see why we would need this option.
To start from current slide go to "SlideShow -> Start from current slide" or press shift+F5.
As this is possible I would suggest removing the option from the dialog.
I removed the option from the options-dialog (https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/7842)
Rob Snelders committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":
Remove from option-dialog the CurrentPage-option (fdo#71601)
The patch should be included in the daily builds available at
http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/ in the next 24-48 hours. More

Good to have marked the other thread as duplicate and having removed the option but, what about reverting the "Start slideshow" button to its old behaviour? Or better, to let users choose which behaiour they desire?
