My libreoffice in Kubuntu 14.04.3 recently updated to 5.0 (currently 126.96.36.199). After update, the presenter console in impress seems to have regressed. The notes do not appear and only the current slide and next slide show up on a white background. The timer moves but cannot be read because the numbers seem to change on top of each other (instead of 4 replacing 3, the 3 remains and the 4 is added to it). And there seems to be no way to configure presenter view. It seemed much more functional in LO 4.
It seems to function fine in terms of placing the slide on the projector and moving from one slide to the next so I am not sure this is a bug. But I am not sure if I need to edit other settings or if this is something being worked on before the final release of 5.0.
