I am using Version (Build ID: 400m0(Build:1)) under Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit. This is first time since upgrading to 4.0 that I used Impress. Many of my menu items that are very important to me are greyed out. For example, these include Edit Undo Redo Cut Copy and Format Position and Size. Why have these very important functions been greyed-out. How do I get them reinstated? Why does LibreOffice Impress now have reduced functionality?

This problem now occurs with Writer. Problem occurs when editing old file as well as when starting new files. File permissions are correct.

  1. Undo and redo make sense only when you have actually changed anything. Type a word and look again.

  2. Cut and Copy are usable only when you have selected something.

  3. Format position and size are only usable when you have some elements selected, to which these changes can be applied.

Someone must have agreed with me. Problem mentioned above does not occur on Version (Build ID: 420m Build:2)
