I have set up an Impress template with all features I need.

However even the master slide shows my settings, the normal slide based on this very master slide shows different settings, which cannot be changed. This concerns the "Text" settings for the slide title. (right click on the frame of the slide title, select "Text")

Image 1 shows the settings in the slide master:

Image 2 shows the unchangable settings in the normal slide

Is this a bug or what am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance for help

I see too, that styles in Impress do not work as in Writer. But using a 'prototype' seems to work. Mark the object, Format > Clear Formatting. Make your settings as direct formatting using the Format menu. Then use "update style" in the Style&Formatting window to transport the settings to the style.

@Regina - Thanks for your help. I solved the problem. Clearing Formating did not work but your hint with Style& Formatting was the import one. I open (modify) the Title style and there I could uncheck Resize Box to fit text. Saved it and was taken over to all slides including new ones.

Do you know by any chance if this bug is reported; I could not find it.

@ROSt52 - No I do not know any bug report on this problem.

One problem is, that the presentation object styles do not have an Organize tab, therefore you cannot verify, what is really set in the style.

@Regina - You are right with the organize tab. I just hope that we get some dev man power to work on Impress. A great application which just needs a bit of brushing up and bug fixes. I wrote quite some bug reports and enhancement requests. Now I am working with and see that I have to write a few more. But I also have to say that Impress improved a lot since I started 2 years ago 3.3 (???). I am very grateful to our devs!!!
