Description Cor Nouws 2015-10-06 15:31:46 UTC
Hmm, no issue for this yet ??

View > Master "Slide master"

Side bar ... "Master pages"

Format > Slide design ... Exchange "background page" 
   Effectively replaces master slide of all slides with the same slide master
   as the selected one

Format > Slide design ... Delete unused "backgrounds"

Comment 8 Cor Nouws 2019-02-05 09:11:38 UTC
mostly fixed in Version:
Build ID: 65f6a4088ad5d51a3225905aa6e2fa175f3eab49
CPU threads: 4; OS: Linux 4.15; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3; 
TinderBox: Linux-rpm_deb-x86_64@86-TDF, Branch:master, Time: 2019-02-03_17:11:18
Locale: nl-NL (nl_NL.UTF-8); UI-Language: en-US
Calc: threaded

in a recent UX-meeting there was e decision on the dialog, but what issue..
Ah bug #122448

Most is fixed - the use of "background page" and "backgrounds" in the dialog (and Help) is still confusing.
And Help file:///home/cono/libreoffice/master63_20190203/libreofficedev6.3/help/en-US/text/simpress/guide/masterpage.html?DbPAR=IMPRESS#bm_id3152596 is fixed
but file:///home/cono/libreoffice/master63_20190203/libreofficedev6.3/help/en-US/text/simpress/01/05120000.html?System=UNIX&DbPAR=IMPRESS&HID=modules/simpress/ui/slidedesigndialog/help#bm_@@nowidget@@ not
