Hi all,

When trying to fix the problem with the disappearing footers (see previous
message) I noticed something strange.

I edited the slide master (resized the auto-layout areas for the title and
outline) and saved the file. When re-opening that file both areas are back
to their old sizes and auto-fit modes again. It seems the changes were not

Has anyone noticed this behavior before? Did you find a workaround?

I tried to find out if this was a known bug, but did not find it in the

Ah, I found a bug report matching this problem. Seems this is known for years,
but it hasn't been fixed (yet). Too bad. (#641175)

That number doesn't seem to exist in LibreOffice's bug tracker:
But it does appear in the Ubuntu Linux bug tracker and looks related:

The equivalent in LibreOffice bug tracker appears to be #34987:
Although marked as having been fixed in version 3.3.1, it does look like it recurred, but is fixed again in newer versions - maybe 4.0.6 in the 4.0 series and 4.1.3 in the 4.1 series (not certain I've interpreted the comments correctly). So may be worth updating to 4.0.6 or 4.1.3 if you're not already using one of those versions.

What If I would be willing to sponsor resolving this bug? What would be the
best way to find a developer that could fix this? We use LO a lot in my company,
so I wouldn't mind to invest in something that would help ourselves and all
other users of LO. If anyone knows someone who would be able and willing to fix
this bug, then please let him/her contact me.
