Description Tom B 2014-11-27 09:44:45 UTC
When working with presentations it's usual that I'll have worked on the presentation in impress then later connect a projector as a second display.

Following the steps:

1) Open Impress
2) Load a presentation
3) Connect projector/second display
4) Run presentation in fullscreen mode

The presentation runs fullscreen on the primary (laptop) display instead of the secondary display (in this case the projector)

If I change the order of events:

1) Connect projector/second display
2) Open Impress
3) Load a presentation
4) Run presentation in fullscreen mode

The presentation is correctly displayed on the projector.

It would be useful if LibreOffice Impress did its check for number of displays upon launching the fullscreen presentation rather than at startup.

I don't reproduce your issue using LibO 4.4.5.1 under Win8.1 x64

are you still seeing this bug with up to date LibO releases?
actually 4.4.5.2 and 5.0.2.2 are available
