Description Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2014-09-09 10:22:59 UTC
When you enter slide show mode in impress by pressing F5, the windows taskbar doesnt disappear. This is a regression that started in 4.1.x as its fine in 4.0.6.

Hi Jay,

Could that be related to menu Slide show > Slide show settings .. Type ?

Cheers,
Cor

Hi Cor,

Well i see that if i check 'presentation always on top', then the taskbar wont be visible, but the setting is unchecked in 4.0.6 and still hides the taskbar.

The problem with enabling this setting is that its on a per file basis rather than an application level option and the default should always be that it shows the slideshow above everything else. On linux, it hides the taskbar and i'm assuming it does so as well on mac, so why is it different on windows.

for me not reproducible with LO 4.3.2.2 (Win 8.1)

With which Windows version could you reproduce it?  Do you also have Windows 8?
Comment 5 Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2014-10-16 22:28:00 UTC
I'm running Windows 7.
Comment 6 Buovjaga 2014-11-15 08:44:49 UTC
Reproduced. Taskbar only disappears, if the always on top option is checked.
Inconsistent compared to Linux.

@iplaw, steve, matthew: Can you provide a mac perspective on this issue, so we know if its limited to Windows.

On OSX, launching the fullscreen playback does just that - no Dock or any other desktop items are displayed apart from the mouse cursor and the spinning hourglass when slides are changed

Thanks Alex. Does changing the 'presentation always on top' mentioned in comment 3 make a difference on OSX.

Still present. You can fix this on a per-file basis by changing the Slide Show settings as per  Cor Nouws's advice, but this is still the wrong behaviour for the program when it does not occur on other OS's

I still see this in LO 6.1.3.2 (x64) on Windows 7.
Comment 18 abma 2019-07-23 11:56:01 UTC
happens for me too with:

Version: 6.2.5.2 (x64) on windows server 2008R2

as workarround i changed the setting inside the template:

"menu Slide show > Slide show settings > check 'presentation always on top'"

so at least for new presentations the issue is gone for me.
