2014-09-17 22:43:29 +0200 asked a question Formatting in Impress notes page not working correctly?

I am attempting to format text in the notes page of a presentation, but it seems that any formatting I apply gets stripped when in the presenter's console. For instance, I have attempted to insert additional line breaks only to have them stripped out. I set the text up with bullet points but they do not show in the console.

I tried setting up the notes master to have the formatting I wanted and add the text in after the fact, but that also did not work. I also tried a blank master and adding in the text afterward to no avail.

This is pretty frustrating as it shoves all the text together into a big block instead of allowing me to break up the flow of the notes to make it easier to find my place.

I am running version, Build ID:958349dc3b25111dbca392fbc281a05559ef6848 on Mac OS X 10.9.4.

2014-04-07 17:00:24 +0200 asked a question Impress Insert sound returns "format of the selected file is not supported".

I'm trying to insert a sound file into a presentation and am getting "The format of the selected file is not supported." I have tried several different source files and several different file formats (AIFF, MP3, OGG, WAV). I also tried this on a brand new presentation to see if it was anything funky with my project specifically and got the same problem.

Anything I can try to work around this issue? Is it possible that I'm not taking the proper steps to insert?

Edit: This is happening on OSX 10.9.2.

2014-03-27 18:45:32 +0200 commented answer Impress: Image stretched when inserting SVG from file.

Ah, thank you! What bothers me about this is that I had thought I was running the latest version of LO, due to the "Check for Updates" dialog indicating so as seen here:

However, when I check the downloads page, version 4.2.2 is clearly available for download. @_@

Sorry to have troubled you! That was one of the first things I checked, but I guess the update dialog can't really be trusted. Should I post another question specifically relating that that bug?

Every svg file that I've tried thus far has run into this issue. I'm just using files from . The one that I have pictured in the screenshots is found here:

Sorry for the delayed response, I never got any notification that anyone had responded. -_-

Thanks for the further inquiries, let me know what else I can do to help get this figured out.

I am inserting an SVG file into a slide in Impress. Upon inserting, the image is immediately stretched to the maximum height of the slide, without affecting the width. The result is a very distorted vertically stretched image. Here are a couple example screenshots-

What it should look like:

How it turns out:

This issue is occurring on LibreOffice - Build ID: 1c1366bba2ba2b554cd2ca4d87c06da81c05d24 I am running it on OS X 10.9.2

I have searched high and low for a solution to this issue to no avail. Wiki, help docs, Google-Fu, all come up empty. Am I just doing something wrong when importing the SVG? Is there some option that I'm missing to maintain the aspect ratio when importing from a file? Or is this an actual bug that should be submitted to
