It would be good to include a checkbox in the 'Slide Design' dialog that allows the selected master to be applied to all the slides, similar to how you have the option in the sidebar to apply a master page to all the slides.
Isn't it an idea to rework slide design dialog towards Loading only, since all the rest can be done via the panel in de side bar ?
Initially, the intent of this bug report was going to be to eliminate the 'slide design' dialog and simply link 'slide design' to the master pages sidebar. The reason i felt that it should be kept was that the sidebar doesnt have the checkbox features 'exchange background page' or 'delete unused backgrounds'.

Can these not be added to the Used in This Presentation sub-pane of the Master Page pane?

I havent used these features before so i wouldnt know how useful they are and how possible it is to include them in the sidebar. But i assume it maybe difficult to do those on a per slide basis.

the choice 'Exchange background page' does that

patch in gerrit https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/c/core/+/89257
and Help needs updating for this change
The dialog is Slide > Change Slide Master... and you can select one of the slide designs to apply as master. The checkbox "[ ] Exchange background page" allows to keep applied background images and "[ ] Delete unused backgrounds" to... I donÄt know. But anyway, it's not to "[ ] Apply Master Slide to all slides" (toggled off means to not apply).
The request seems to be invalid.

I did actually test it. Looked at what happened with slide masters present in the presentation and in use on the slides.
Did you? What did I miss?

> Did you?
Three different master with a gradient, some hatch, and a bitmap. Applied to four slides where two have a background bitmap. "[ ] Exchange background page" off applies the master background to only the current slide, when check all slides without a background change accordingly. The option "[ ] Delete unused backgrounds" has no effect.
Switching master per sidebar affects the content while per dialog the font size, for example, is not touched.
Putting all together "[ ] Apply Master Slide to all slides" seems to be wrong here.

- Select "Exchange background page" makes that the selected Slide Master is applied to all slides that have the same Slide Master as the selected slide (see slide panel)
- Not selecting "Exchange background page" > only selected slide is changed
- Also the footer text formatting of the slide changes to that of the new Slide Master
- Also the non-image formatting of a slide changes to the (non image) formatting of the new Slide Master
- Select "Exchange background page" changes master slide of all slides with same slide master as selected one
So text should be
_Apply Master Slide to all slides (similar as the one selected)
OK :) ?

> OK :) ?
I expect from this function "Change Slide Master" to replace the master, which may or may not affects all slides. And I can follow the idea to optionally replace the slide background. So
"[ ] Apply master slide to all slides"
is fine but plus
"[ ] Exchange background page"
Anyway, not blocking as I might be wrong. Please keep an eye on proper case: "Master Slide" as a proper noun is correct, not sure that we use it in this way.
(In reply to Heiko Tietze from comment #16)
> "[ ] Apply master slide to all slides"
"Apply Master Slide (to all slides with similar Master Slide as the currently selected slide)"
"Apply Master Slide (to all slides similar as the one selected)"
How about a very short command name "[ ] Apply master to all slides" and have a "disclaimer" below. "Check this option to apply the master not only to the current slide but all using the same master". Could be a static GtkLabel with smaller font or italic or grey font color.

This is an option, but I think I do not see similar solution often in LibreOffice? :)

For good reasons as it's always bad usability when a command needs explanation. It's workflow (what the function actually does), terminology (how it's labelled), and kind of interaction that has to be simple and appropriate. Our discussion is an indicator that something is wrong here ;-).

Since the dialog is about applying Master Slides, the obvious text for the checkbox is:
"Apply to all slides (with similar Master as the selected slide)"
which starts to get more in the direction.
It would be nice to see a friendly face from my past. I messaged back. "Would love to. Congrats on the interview. Do you need me to help in any other way?" I thought he may like to stay overnight if he didn't want to tackle the long drive to and from Wellington twice in one day.
A reply came back almost immediately. "Can you pretend to be my GF for the interview? They allow whanau support, and they kept asking me all these questions about why I wanted to move to a small town. To be honest, it doesn't attract me that much, but as things stand I would take a job in Syria if one was offered. A local GF may help my chances."
I knew that as a concession to Maori applicants, who supposedly had strong family ties and made decisions collectively, companies advertising for more senior positions allowed applicants to bring along spouses, family members or significant others to interviews. It would be considered racist to only allow this privilege to the native Maori, so many non-Maori also took advantage of this 'whanau support.' Needless to say I had never been interviewed for jobs at the level where such solicitous regard for the applicants' well being was part of the process.
It was an odd request, but it put a smile on my face. Then I wondered why I had become such a sad case that even the idea of accompanying an older man as a pretend girlfriend lifted my spirits. I messaged back.
"So does that mean sex LOL :) "
As soon as I had sent the reply I regretted it. Andrew was my teacher for God's sake, not some acne-scarred youth I had picked up in a pub. What would he think of me?
Again the reply came back straight away. I was afraid to look. But then I felt a fluttering inside me as I read it.
"I wouldn't mind. You are after all very attractive. But it's not necessary :) I will shout you dinner afterwards."
The message cheered me up somewhat. Not enough to get out of bed, clean the dishes, make some dinner, ring my mother or do the other chores I had to do, but enough to sit up and think of a flirtatious reply. I don't know why. I already know I'm attractive. I have silky honey coloured hair, high cheek bones, a body that is curvaceous without being plump, and at twenty four, I am at just about the right age for the male cuteness factor, especially to someone older like Andrew, who I know had a firm appreciation of his female students' bodies, though he never tried anything on.
So most boys called me attractive, and most wanted to get into my knickers - until they discovered there is not much inside them. No, the reason I was pleased was because Andrew appeared to have no particular interest in scoring with me, so I knew his words were not empty flattery.
Heiko, I can't find this dialog now. I remember we renamed it, but into what?=)
Slide > Slide Master or right click: Change Slide Master (see also c9). See also bug 112650 (in the past, we had a dialog to apply a background image on all slides).
