This is a minor/trivial bug in the UI, but the mouseover effects in the new Impress Sidebar in LO 4.2Beta2 are not consistent.
In the Layouts pane of the sidebar in LO4.2Beta2 the old and outdated look of the mouseover effect is used (black rectangles on mouseover as introduced in OpenOffice.org 2.0), see the first attached screenshot (you don't see the tooltips in the screenshot). It looks very outdated in 2013. In the Master Page pane of the sidebar in LO4.2Beta2, the modern look is applied, which uses no explicit mouseover effect except that the tool tip is shown.
In LibreOffice 4.1.x Impress and already many versions before, the 'modern' look was applied. Please see second screenshot (you don't see the tooltip in the screenshot.
Please change the Sidebar Layouts 4.2 mouseover effect to the one used in LO4.1 so that the mouseover effects in the new sidebar are consistent.

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 (4.4.2 or later)
If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a short comment that includes your version of LibreOffice and Operating System
Please DO NOT
Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not appropriate in this case)
If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so: 1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3)
2. Test your bug 3. Leave a comment with your results. 4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to "inherited from OOo"; 4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add "regression" to keyword

This is still the case in master (5.0 series).
But what OP calls “modern” (the pre-4.1 look) looks even more horrible and old.
I agree with Adolfo and feel that having a mouse over effect when you hover over a layout is the better option. I would close this as WONTFIX, but will leave it to someone else from UX to agree.
Agreed. Dashed line perhaps? But WONTFIX is okay for me too.
Thanks, closing it is okay for me, too. (OP)
I have seen that the visual representation in the sidebar has greatly improved in many ways. Thanks!
