[Bug 1196679]


Also reproduced with LO, - Ubuntu 12.04 x86. Same with
AOO 4.1.1, seems inherited from OOO.

Possibly not filesave problem since the text in 'Custom Animation' pane
not changed after text modification, unless we click anywhere to exit
editing box or firing Slide Show.

  [Upstream] Most recent change in presentation not saved when using

Status in LibreOffice Productivity Suite:
Status in “libreoffice” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Problem description:
  LibreOffice Impress discards changes to documents without notice in certain circumstances. It happens when the object in question is part of a custom animation and if no other content is modified before saving.

  This is actually really annoying as it may lead to whole paragraphs of
  text getting lost or to other corrections not being saved (and as
  such, errors or typos getting re-introduced without noticing).

  Steps to reproduce:
  1. Create an empty presentation
  2. Add some text such as "Test0"
  3. Select the entered text (or the parent text box) and add a custom animation (doesn't matter which, but let's say "Appear")
  4. Save and close the document
  5. Open it again and modify the text (Make "Test0" read "Text1")
  6. Without editing anything else, click save (or press Ctrl+S) and close the presentation
  7. Re-open again and notice that the last change did not get saved (the page still reads "Test0")

  Current behavior:
  The most recent change done to any animated item is not saved, unless something else is modified afterwards.
  Above test case shows "Test0".

  Expected behavior:
  Everything which is visible on-screen should be saved to the file and should look the same after re-opening the file.
  Above test cases should yield "Test1".

  Further information:
  - The list of custom animations does not update properly either (i.e. when "Test0" is changed to "Test1", the animation list still says "Test0" unless something else is edited or focus is switched to another slide).
  - While I am not familiar with the LibreOffice code, it looks like some event is not fired in this case which would usually be responsible for updating internal state at several places (internal ODF representation, custom animation list pane).
  - Removing the custom animation and repeating the test (changing content, saving, reloading) will still show the bug! The bug only vanishes if the document is re-opened after the custom animation has been removed.

  - This was first noticed on Kubuntu 13.04 with the bundled libreoffice-
