Hi :)
Did you manage to resolve this issue?  

Please let us know how its going.  Did switching themes solve it?  

Without really looking into it much it kinda sounds to me like you have only 1 screen set-up where 
you really need to dual-monitor the machine running the slideshow.  I'm not sure how to do that on 
a Mac tbh.  Also Impress might need to be told to put the slides on 1 screen (the projector) and 
keep the rest of Impress on the other screen (your main screen).  

I think the default is to take a small 800by600 area of the top left of your main monitor and 
project that area.  That's a bit sub-optimal.  it's better to take advantage of dual-monitor 
set-ups so that you have 2 separate screens.  I'm not sure if this guide helps at all but just in 
case it is;

Regards from 
Tom :)

Subject: [libreoffice-users] Odd problem LO with Mac running 10.7.5

I haven't seen any information on this in the list of "annoying bugs" so I
thought I'd post it here.

I'm creating instructional design to teach our 8th grade students how to
use LibreOffice Impress.  However I'm running into a snag on my own Mac,
developing the multimedia presentation.  The slideshow utilizes the
Metropolis theme.  When I play the slide-show in full screen mode, only
about 1/4 of the screen shows the blue background.  The rest of the
background is white, and since the text is white it disappears.   I
switched it to windowed mode to see if it made any difference.  The blue
background still doesn't fill the slide area.  I've enclosed a jpg
screen-shot of what it looks like.  Filename: LO_Problem.jpg

Here's some of my system specifics:

iMac Intel 2.7 GHz Core i7 with 27 inch screen, 12 GB memory.
OS X Version 10.7.5
LibreOffice Version (Build ID:
4c82dcdd6efcd48b1d8bba66bfe1989deee49c3) TinderBox: MacOSX TDF Release,
Branch:libreoffice-4-0, Time: 2013-03-26_15:52:16

Any ideas what could cause this problem?  I'm in a pickle if I can't teach
LibreOffice Impress with a Presentation built in LibreOffice Impress!  :)

Thank you,
