I use LibreOffice at work, but I cannot create a OTP-Version of our corporate PowerPoint template. The reason is because we have a master slide for chapters, which consists of a title, a subtitle and a chapter number:

In PowerPoint, all 3 items are editable. However, there is no way to add a third area (for the big chapter number). It doesn't need to be an auto layout area. Just being able to pre-define a style let the user edit the content would be sufficient.

I've seen all the support requests and bug reports about this topic, some of them being submitted 5-8 years ago. So I figure it's time to file a feature request for this.

Feature requests are treated the same way as bug reports. They need to be filed to Select enhancement for the field 'Severity'.

OK, thank you for the hint. I googled it, and got both places ( and in the search results. But I was confused about the domain "" vs. "". My thinking was: I want to ask for a new feature in LibreOffice, I do not want to file a bug. And "" seemed to be more close to my intent than "".

I even searched for "feature request" on and saw that many people prefix their request with [Feature Request], so I assumed it is the proper way.

Looks like a "design vs. user experience" thing to me…

For the record: I created an "enhancement bug report" for this:
