Description Katarina Behrens (Inactive) 2016-01-07 17:40:35 UTC
* New or existing Impress document
* Tools > Options > Application colours > Application background
* Pick your favourite colour
* OK to Save 

=> Nothing happens. The area behind Impress slide or Draw page (grey in default configuration) should now have the selected colour, but it doesn't. One has to restart Impress to actually see the change.

I'm 100% sure this used to work w/o app restart in 5.0 => regression. 
+ it works in Writer ( as usually :| )
