Description Luke 2014-02-19 14:23:25 UTC
Ever since 4.2 Impress does not show the images of faces in attachment 83071 [details] when the user starts a slide show.

This is an especially insidious bug, as the pictures will show in the normal view, but will disappear, when the user starts the show. I have verified the pictures do show in 4.1 and do not show up in 4.2.0 and 4.3.0 up to Build ID: 637353bb46d3c7d9537e47e4e003aef78a0c0ab3. This bug appears to affect both Linux and Windows OS.

Comparison with 4.1, 4.3, MS Office 2013

@Jean-Baptiste Faure 
No problem for me with pictures in slideshow.
:This is a regression. You are likely opening it with LO 4.1. I have verified this issue with the latest 4.3 nightly and 4.2 in both Win 7 and Linux.

What is special with this particular file?
:It was created with MS Office 2007

Does it work as expected if you convert it to OpenDocument Format or to strict OOXML format?
:No, When I saved as strict OOXML, LO 4.2+ had the same issues as with the .pptx file.

tested under Win7x64

I confirm bug (images not shown in slideshow) with and

images are shown but with some kind of transparency in like in your screenshot, so there's a regression of an already imperfect behaviour.

I've removed "regression" from summary notes and put it under Keywords where it belongs

I agree this is indisious bug since it looks OK in normal view.

Comment 7 Jan Holesovsky 2014-09-10 07:20:39 UTC
The behavior here is pretty annoying :-(

Having said that, my fix is not the culprit here, my only change is that the shapes are grouped.  When you ungroup them in the presentation, you can see the pictures of the people again in the presentation mode too.

I'll attach the .odp version of the initial attachment; it would be great if you can bibisect when that become broken - as you can see, even the .odp version has the same behavior - shows fine in the edit mode, but not in the presentation mode...

Adding bibisectrequest keyword, to bibisect with the .odp file I'm about to attach.

Thank you!

@Kendy, I can't bibisect your file ( attachment 106028 [details] ) as images aren't seen in pre-4.2 versions neither

Luke: Yes, your observation is correct, 2 hidden bugs...

Splitting to 2 reports sounds to me as a great plan :-) - I think best if you continue handling the pictures in this one, and create the other for gradinent.  Please mention this bug there for reference.

Thanks a lot for handling this!

Simple example made with Impress by following the steps below:

I've made a simpler version of this 
1) In impress Draw, Insert shape
2) Area->Bitmaps->Pick any bitmap, uncheck "Tile"
3) Add another shape
4) Group the shapes
5) Start the slideshow

By shrinking  and expanding the connector on the attached example, you can cause the rose to appear/disappear. This means that the slideshow viewer is using the group position to determine where the image goes instead of using the shape's position.

Comment 23 Xisco Faulí 2016-10-06 11:29:00 UTC
Is looks like the bug in grouped image is inherited from OOo as the problem in comment 21 can be already reproduced in Libreoffice 3.3.
Just to be clear: Kendy's commits just arose this bug but it was there before.
Removing keywords 'regression' and 'bibisected' and changing version to Inherited from OOo

still present in LibO and recent alpha.

The fix for Bug 105620


Resolved this issue on Linux, but not Windows.
Comment 29 Xisco Faulí 2019-01-11 20:39:28 UTC
Lowering importance: Highest + Inherit from OOo doesn't make much sense at this point anymore...
Comment 30 paulystefan 2020-03-10 17:16:22 UTC
both examples im LO x64 win10-64

the pictures are there in normal work mode.

complex example shows not the pictures in presentation mode.
