Hi all,
I've noticed something annoying with AutoLayout objects in Impress. This is
what I did:

1. create an empty presentation and edit the slide master
2. edit the height of the main AutoLayout text box (the one that usually
contains the main content)
3. Make sure that the text box is not set to auto size, either under
"text..." or under "size and position"
4. close master view

Now if I choose a layout that displays this AutLayout area, the height of it
is set to whatever I made it be and all is fine. Here's the problem. I now
save this document and close it. When I open it again the AutoLayout is
still the same as before I closed it, but if I change the layout the height
of the AutoLayout goes back to what it was before I changed it in the
master. If I now open the master view I see that indeed the master has also

I can change the slide master again and repeat the whole process but nothing
fixes this. I've tried locking the size and position of the text box but
that is ignored. I've flipped all sorts of checkboxes but haven't found a
solution yet. 

All this is happening in LO 3.5.0 rc3 but also happened in the 3.4.5
version. I haven't tried older versions. Running win7 64-bit.

Anyone else see this happen, and if so is there a fix (I'm assuming it's a
feature and not a bug).
