Pointer not showing in impress

Hello, my university moved lectures online,
I am having trouble opening .ppsx files:
All elements are displayed and I can hear the audio, however I cannot see the pointer that the lecturer is using to point at what they are talking about (its supported to look like a red dot).
Is there anyway I can fix this?

To fix a bug or implement a missing feature, you are welcome to start hacking LibreOffice!

so there is no addon or option that will fix this?

I don’t know what is that “this”. You are seeing some problem in some specific PPSX, and it’s not known which internal part of that document is not handled by LibreOffice correctly.

The first thing to do is to file a bug report and attach a sample document there. Without this, it’s not possible to tell anything.
