Hi Agus,

many thanks for your help.
Just found that this problem happens only if a recycle a given ppt, not if
I start a new presentation from scratch.

That good. So not LibO is broken, but you only need to change the setting in this special presentation.

 Nevertheless, as this
recycling is actually

"Recycling" is not the only method to use old presentations. You should learn how to use/generate document templates and how to import single slides.

 I provide a short example here:

I've got it.

Note that the same text is in the slide with white background than in
the one with the colored background.I would appreciate knowing how to
change the default color for the text, as it is very inconvenient
having white as default and having to change the color for every new
text field.

Impress has two kind of objects: Presentation objects (e.g. Title, Subtitle, Outline) and Graphic objects (e.g. text box, circle, call out). If you open the "Style and Formatting" window (key F11) you notice this two groups.

Your texts are of the kind "shape" (see right side of the status bar) and therefore belong to the group "Graphic style". Select this group. In this window select "hierarchical" from the bottom drop down list. The top most Graphic style is "default". If a graphic object has not its own style, then the settings of the "default" style are used.

To change this style, right click style "Default" in the "Style and Formatting" window and select the item "Modify". Go to the dialog page "Font Effect". Notice that the font color is set to "White". You can alter this and change it to "Black" or to "Automatic". In the latter case the color is black on a light background and white on a dark background.

If a shape does not follow the change, it might have a direct font color setting. In that case you can remove the direct setting by Format > Default Formatting. Then, while object is still selected, double click the style "Text" from the "Style and Formatting" window to remove background and border.

Kind regards
