Impress Remote on Android 4.4.2 does not connect for v4.4.0.0.alpha1 or current release v4.4.3.2.  Issue present in both Bluetooth and WiFi options.

Works for me with Android Impress remote, LO 4322 stock release and osx 10.10.

Connected using Bluetooth.

Can not reproduce bug behaviour.

Just to complete the confusion over reproduction:

With a stock Nexus 7 2013 and OSX 10.9, I can connect over WiFi to both and a recent 4.4 master build. Bluetooth fails to connect to either - the hardware pairs well enough, but LibreOffice and the remote fail to find each other.

As it seems that at least Bluetooth will fail to connect under some circumstances, setting this -> NEW
Comment 3 Alex Thurgood 2014-10-28 14:42:39 UTC
I tested with a Samsung S3 phone, over bluetooth, which worked
Comment 4 Christian Lohmaier 2015-04-07 17:07:12 UTC
There's no fundamental problem with connecting to Mac, neither using bluetooth nor via wifi - so whatever the problem, it depends on the local setup → NEEDINFO

E.g. how did you determine that "the hardware pairs well enough"?
