Presentation with different gradient backgrounds. Adding a gradient with a new name, it appears while open but after closing the document it does not reappear when re-opening. (In an older version, they used to be saved and appeared in all documents.)
Changing the gradient background on a slide-by-slide basis works while the document is open, but after closing and re-opening, SOME of the backgrounds have not been saved correctly. Some do save correctly, and I haven’t been able to figure out why some do and some don’t. The incorrect ones revert to the background on the first or master slide. I have tried:
(1) Adding a gradient under Slide/Properties/Background/Gradient. These disappear completely after closing and re-opening the document.
(2) Changing the gradient by hand for each and every slide under Slide/Properties/Background/Gradient
(3) Duplicating a slide with the correct gradient, and saving
(4) Saving after every single change
The only way I got presentations to save correctly was to create a new one from the ground up, inserting the slide backgrounds in order, and then copying and pasting the content on each slide one by one.
So it appears to be an issue with editing existing backgrounds.
Tips or a work-around would be greatly appreciated!
(This was a problem in earlier versions also, no answers: Impress 5.2.3 5.2.4 slide background gradient lost after save and why are background colours lost on save?)
