Presentation with corrupted icon on nearly all slides in the upper right corner.
Quoting from bug 46447:
"Since several versions, and also in previously used openoffice versions, and at least for all 3.x versions I had, the presentation module Impress shows the following bug which completely ruins any given presentation. This bug occurs on a regular basis - usually once every presentation I generate:
For no specific reason, suddenly, images which have been embedded (not linked) into a presentation 'disappeare' with only a 'missing-link' placeholder displayed instead of the image in the editing mode of Impress.
Once this behavior occurs, the presentation is irreversibly damaged <...>."
I was plagued by this bug for what 7? 10? years - and I can't f***ing believe it's back again - just by lucky chance it only killed an hour of work this time.
At least an error message or a warning would be nice before saving unknowingly the corrupted file!!!
The slides are not confidential, do with it whatever you like.
Sorry to read of this problem.
I'm not sure if it is the same as in report 46447.
On slide #4 there are also other images that do not disappear. So I think that it is a different problem maybe.
Could you please also post a good version of the file?
Is the image that disappeared the same as the one on slide #2?
(Why not work with a master page with that element? Not that that per see would solve the issue, I guess...)
Thanks - Cor

Nearly identical slides to first attachment for this bug with intact graphics.
thanx for taking care of that bug! I'm not placing the image on the master slide because I'm using it as a visual cue for the last item on the slide, i.e. it appears at the same time as e.g. the last bullet point.
Yes, the images that disappear on subsequent slides are the same as the one on slide #2 (at least I think so ...) - it should be an SVG-File.
At least for me, the "old bug" caused only some images to disappear, not all. Hence, at least the effect is same-same :-/ ...
Thanks for the info and the file, Christian.
Opening the file.. see if I can reproduce.
If you have any tips on circumstances, actions: those are more then welcome.
Cheers - Cor

I tested with this. Saved and reloaded a couple of times, but images stayed in place.
64-bit, KDE Plasma 5
Build ID: 188.8.131.52 Arch Linux build-2
CPU Threads: 8; OS Version: Linux 4.4; UI Render: default;
Locale: fi-FI (fi_FI.UTF-8)
Strange. The only "special circumstances" I can think of are:
- This is a presentation with a long history, dating back to LO 3.x
- This is the first time I've used an SVG as an "icon" on all slides
I'm cautiously using SVG icons in LO 5.0.3 under Linux Mint where I cannot downgrade to LO 4. Here, I cannot reproduce the bug (I'm experiencing frequent crashes but that's a different story).
You can install several versions to test: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Installing_in_parallel
I have a presentation in which occasionally the images disappear.
I have inspected the source file, and I have observed that the png file of the eclipsed image is corrupt.
I have used a hex inspector, and I have observed that the corresponding image file is corrupted. It is full of secuences like 00 FF 00 FF... or 33 66 99 CC FF.
Oooh - that is interesting ! with the normal image loss bug - I would expect to have simply no image stream in the document.
You seem to have a much more interesting version of this. That is very curious. Any chance of a hex-dump of the first 128 bytes or so before and after ? also - the file-sizes ?
Sounds most interesting; thanks !
Do you need the original graphics (png and svg icons) or can you extract them from the intact presentation?
Yes, same problem with LO 184.108.40.206
May images disappears on my last odp file.
It was my first day working with LO 5.0.x branch
-> I Go Back to 4.4.6

screen print of problem
Encountered the same problem.
Image on page #2 that is a copy of the one on page 1 disappeared.
See the screen print. Note that at that time the image was still visible in the preview in the side pane.

Looking at this
I guess I should use the -len option ?
Also; I do have the file with problem and after repair. Not sure if that may help?
I encountered the problem in a recent 5.2 master

Presentation with corrupted graphics on slide 17
Another example for a corrupted graphics.
Still a repro with:

1. Open attachment 123746 [details] in Impress
2. Set Save AutoRecovery information to 1 or 2 minutes (Tools -> Options - Load/save )
3. Open all the slides by scrolling down (Side Pane)
4. Make a change to a sheets (for example moving an image a bit)
5. Minimize Impress
6. Wait for the next autosave
7. Restore the Impress Window
Icon in the upper right corner should be gone (mostly)
Great to have this reproducible ! thanks for the great work there ...

I'm reproducing the same issue the image attached (created with the Microsoft Snipping Tool)
1. Launch Impress with a fresh empty presentation
2. Set the auto-save to 1 minute (Tools -> Preferences)
3. Add the image using drag & drop or Insert Image
4. Minimize the screen
5. Restore the screen after two or three minutes
No repro with Writer
I have a problem with missing images on some Ubuntu 16.04 computers, but not others. I found that replacing the .config/libreoffice/user folder on the computer with the problem with the folder from the computer that doesn't have the problem fixed the problem.

Others will be able to test this with Safe Mode: Help - Restart in safe mode and then Continue in safe mode.

Would you mind to try UN-check Use OpenGL for all rendering and restart Libre if the problem is gone?

I would rather hope this change solves the problem: https://blog.documentfoundation.org/blog/2018/06/19/image-handling-rework-for-libreoffice-collaboras-tender-results/

Yet another presentation with corrupted images (icons top right corner)
Win 7 64b, LO 220.127.116.11
Still the same in 6.1.2 as before - this is insane. Congratulations: You've introduced new bugs in Impress without fixing this decade (!) old bug.
I used to put a check image, a discrete green little check on the top left top of my slides.
The image appears with the last animation of all my slides. that tells me that the animations on my slide are ended.
(I guess if it shouldn't be a core feature, just having to choose the image and its location)
This is a lot of work to do that. as a teacher, I've hundred of presentations.
I don't know how, I don't know why but they have mostly vanish. Loosing hours of work. Not all at the same time, on the same conditions.
So I sadly decided to stop working this way.
I also decided to stop using transitions, as if yo go back on a slide, all of your animations are lost
I also decided to stop embedding as sometimes it's very very long to save and open such a doc
I also decided to stop using export PDF, as sometimes, images are not exported correctly. And so on...
Fort sure, a lot of work is done on LO, but you've reached the thousand regressions. There were about hundred regressions at the beginning of LO
I'm also working as a teacher with Impress and I can only agree with Pierre C - it has become a PITA over time, it is obviously the unloved child among LO's components.
Perhaps the import capabilities of SoftMaker for PPT / ODP formats will improve even more in the future, it is nearly there. As I'm using Latex anyway, I'll give the Beamer class a try this term.
I'm using 18.104.22.168 release version and have the same problem. Some images desapear espontaneously in presentation after file to be closed. I'm not sure, but I think it happens only with images that I modified original size after placed its in the slide. I'm using GNU\Linux (Debian 9.5)
Little change in summary.
Thanks for report on images and user profile - must be a different topic.
@telestro: what do you think, does the summary make sense for you?

Not that the behavior is acceptable as such, but what happens if you make the image in the top right corner of the slide a part of the master slide?
I can't reproduce it

Reports are all from 6.0 and prior. The issue is resolved, IMHO https://blog.documentfoundation.org/blog/2018/06/19/image-handling-rework-for-libreoffice-collaboras-tender-results/
I would propose works for me.. It should work fine except for corner cases (bug 123541)
That is a relief. Let's close and celebrate.
