Hi :)
Wrt sponsoring devs to work on key issues affecting your company

Many companies employ devs to work directly on LibreOffice.  Famously
openSuSE and Redhat but also many others such as Canonical also
various governments and companies that are not primarily
computer-related.  Smaller companies can do so on a smaller scale,
perhaps just 1 and only part-time.  Also very possible to have maybe 2
part-time devs working on a variety of projects (incl the company
website's under-laying structure (marketing deals with the surface
images and content right?)) but being given specific tasks and
priorities as and when a need arises.

There are crowd sponsoring sites for specific "one off" issues but i
can't remember any and anyway it looks like this issue is already
solved by just upgrading to a newer release in (hopefully) the same
branch.  Moving to another branch sometimes means surprises and not
always good, usually but not always.  Staying in the same branch (such
as 4.0.4 to 4.0.6 - or 4.1.0 to 4.1.5) is roughly the equivalent of
just adding a new "Service Pack".

Tom :)

Hi all,

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

I edited the slide master (resized the auto-layout areas for the title
outline) and saved the file. When re-opening that file both areas are
to their old sizes and auto-fit modes again. It seems the changes were

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
buglist. If it is new, then I'll report it.

Ah, I found a bug report matching this problem. Seems this is known for
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
best way to find a developer that could fix this? We use LO a lot in my
so I wouldn't mind to invest in something that would help ourselves and
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.
