1) start a new presentation 2) insert two slides 3) move to "slide sorter" view 4) check that slide names are "Slide 1" and "Slide 2" 5) rename the first slide to "MySlide" 6) now try to set the slide name back to "Slide 1". You can't. More generally, today I can't seem to set the slide name back to the default "Slide NNN" form.

Using Windows XP, Using OOo 2.1, The issue could be exactly reproduced by following the steps mentioned above. It should be noted that slide renaming can be done in any of the â€œNormalâ€, â€œNotesâ€, or â€œSlide Sorterâ€ views. Once the name of a slide is changed from its original name, (which consists of the word â€œSlideâ€, a space after that, and the number of the corresponding slide following the space) to some other name, the new name cannot be changed back to the original name. In other words, the name cannot be changed back to the format consisting of the word â€œSlideâ€, a space after that, followed by the slide number. When this format is followed in renaming, the â€œokâ€ button is grayed out not letting you choose this type of name. However, the name can be changed to any other name in any other format. The work-around for this problem is: - Copy all the content of the slide by selecting everything and right clicking and choosing â€œCopyâ€ - Delete the slide by right clicking on the slide in the â€œSlidesâ€ bar which is located on the left hand side of the page and clicking on â€œDelete Slideâ€. - After the slide has been deleted, on the â€œSlidesâ€ bar on the left hand side of the page, put the cursor where you want to have that slide and right click choosing â€œNew Slideâ€. - The new slide created has the desired name which consist of the word â€œSlideâ€, a space after that, and the number that corresponds to the number of the slide. - In the slide (not on the â€œSlidesâ€ bar on the left, but in the slide itself) right click and choose â€œPasteâ€. This will copy the content of the previous slide which could not be renamed to the desired format. Therefore you have the same slide with the desired name format.

The user-entered slide name is specifically prevented from starting with "Slide " (in English anyway), to try and avoid duplicate slide names. See Issue 48374
