I having problems with the 'view presentation mode'. I can see my presentation nicely in the edition mode (1) but when I go to the view presentation mode (F5), some images are changed (background and some others), you can see the screenshots in the urls below.

I am using Format->Page->Format Screen 4:3. I have checked and unchecked 'autofit object to page format', but I have the same bad result.

Any idea? I attach here two screenshots where you can see the difference between editing and the presentation result.

If I export to PDF, the result is ok.

I am using LO 4.3.52 in Ubuntu.

Any idea about how to solve this?

Thanks, Carlos A.

I tried to simulate in LibO on an XP machine using Impress objects and a png image but could not see the problem.

In order improve the simulation it is important to know what the format (jpg, png, impress objects, metafiles, etc) are the elements in you slide. Main elements:
- The purple image element - The white element appearing only in you presentation mode screenshot - The title element.

In which format did you save your presentation?

Do you see the same effect when you create a new presentation based on a template which does not have any non Impress default elements in it? (If you did not change the default Impress template of Impress to your own default Impress template, you can use the original default template.)

Make sure that you save all in odp-format until the cause for the problem is understood.

It was very helpful that you attached your presentation with the problems. I opened it Normal View and Presentation View mode. Everything is fine. I did not observe your problem using your original file.

The difference between our systems is that your OS is Unbuntu and mine is XP. This means we have a bug in the Linux/Ubuntu version.

May I propose to file a bug report here:

Please add your screenshots and if possible (consider confidentiality of your slides) to the bug report.

It would be good to post the bug number here, so others can add comments.

Thank you very much for your help.

I am using ODP format and the images are in PNG.

There are two problems: 1) Background image. In edit mode it fills the whole slide. In presentation mode, you can see white elements on the upper left corner. 2) Purple image. I am using a PNG image, but since it does not fitl the fulll the box, I use a purple box (created with ODP) to fill everything in the background.

Following your suggestion, I have tried with one of the syles (sunset) that are packaged within LibreOffice, I get the same problem. The differences are even more evident between both modes.

I attach here the screenshots and the ODP files so that it is easier to reproduce thep problem.
