OSX 10.10.1 LO 4.4rc2 focus template not displayed correctly
The new templates open fine except Templates > Presentations > Focus
Currently: the colors / background are not shown
Expected: Should display correctly.
Talked to Kendy about this, he said it was working fine on Linux + Windows, but on OSX the above issue is happening. Kendy said this qualified as a blocker.
LO 4.5 latest nightly 2015-01-09
TESTING with LO 18.104.22.168 + Ubuntu 14.04

Yes -- I can't repro with LO running on Ubuntu.
Confirmed on OSX 10.10.1 / LO 22.214.171.124
Background isn't shown
Plattform > All

LO 4.3.5: imported focus.otp from LO 4.4
also shown as broken with missing colors etc

EMF+ metafile that is inside the template.
Apparently it is a problem with reading EMF+ on OSX; this is the file inside the presentation.
EMF+ metafile that is inside the template does show correctly on Win 8.1
On osx 10.10.1
188.8.131.52: nothing (empty white sheet)
4.5 2015-01-15 nothing
bonus track: NeoOffice: same.
Confirmed by checking past releases that this has never displayed on OSX. Not sure if this is strictly an inherited bug or effectively a new feature that doesn't fully work yet.
For reference, though it may not be relevant, the first time this worked on Linux was after the below commit:

EMF+: force canvas if EMF+ comments are used.
Without this the drawinglayer renderer is used, whereas
only the canvas renderer supports EMF+.
*** Bug 92202 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Fixing EMF+ rendering under OS X is difficult. I suggest a different approach. Use SVG images instead of EMF+/SVM images as slide background.
def not "blocker", setting to "normal". Would be great to get this fixed anyhow. Since there's a stronger emphasis on templates, the few default templates should be working on all OSs.

No code pointers -> no easy hack
My suggestion was to use SVG images as slide backgrounds in extras/source/templates/presnt/Focus.otp. It's an easy hack for a designer, not for a coder.
Adding the keywords back based on comment 16 - I like the idea :-) [Probably we need a separate bug for the EMF+ handling on OS X, but maybe that's already filed somewhere?]
