Every time I reopen a .odp document it messes up animations of text (LibreOffice 3). Why is this and how can I fix it?

I have been working on a presentation in LibreOffice 3 Impress. I have been using a lot of animations of text using the "appear" effect. When I test it out when I have just made the animation it works great, however every time I reopen the document it doubles the amount of times I have to click in orde to get it between each animation; this makes it so that by when my presentation is done I will have to click probably something like 40 times for each piece of text that I animated to appear.

I will appreciate any help. Thanks

If an ODP works differently in a later LO version, then please file an issue at LO Bugzilla with description of the regression, and also with attached sample file created with the earlier version, that works differently with newer version. State which was the version you used to create the file, and which do you use to test the incorrect behavior (you failed to provide the info here). Also, make sure that you have tested with latest fresh version to know that it hasn't been fixed yet.

I only have the ability to run LibreOffice 3 on my system. I have only used LibreOffice 3 for everything with my presentation.

You still didn't tell which version do you use.

TDF has 4 major versions and 23 minor released in 3.x lifespan: 3.3.0, 3.3.2, 3.3.3, 3.3.4, 3.4.0, 3.4.1, 3.4.2, 3.4.3, 3.4.4, 3.4.5, 3.4.6, 3.5.0, 3.5.1, 3.5.2, 3.5.3, 3.5.4, 3.5.5, 3.5.6, 3.5.7, 3.6.0, 3.6.1, 3.6.2, 3.6.3, 3.6.4, 3.6.5, 3.6.6, 3.6.7. Do I need to test all of them to find out if they have the problem?

I believe you have a bug in your version of LO. If you cannot change exactly your subversion, then you're possibly out of luck.

It is LibreOffice 3.5.
