Description Yousuf Philips (jay) (retired) 2015-10-27 00:07:21 UTC
1) Open Writer
2) Hide the sidebar
3) Open Impress through the New button
4) Sidebar will be hidden

The sidebar is an essential component of impress and draw and should always be open.

Yes it is probably correct that Impress should open with the Sidebar active in almost all instances. But until bug 67770 is resolved in some fashion--it is going to have to be hard coded to force it to open--as opposed to taking its state from the current LO session.
