Description isr81 2007-09-24 13:58:48 UTC
When changing the background color of a slide via Format --> Page --> Background, a dialog appears which asks if the new setting will be applied to all the pages of the presentation. When choosing "No" in that dialog, the current slide's color is changed individually, as expected. Changing the background color again, and answering "Yes" to the dialog, the color of the individually changed slides remains the same, while the rest change correctly.

I should add that when applying the layout of the master pages, the background changes are correct.

I'm not sure whether or not I should comment here, or open a new issue, because this issue has came up in the process of trying to figure out a much bigger set of issues. I.e., this issue is one that I have problems with, but I came across it when trying to deal with another, related issue with the background. Basically, I get the same problem described here. I can also reproduce it using the "styles and formatting" toolbar/window. However, background changes through the "styles and formatting window" don't affect those through the Format --> Page --> Background dialog, and vice-versa. The bigger problem that led to me discovering this issue is that background changes don't appear in the main editing window, but do appear in the preview window and in the slideshow. E.g., if I reproduce the bug here, there's an added issue that all of these changes that occur or don't occur only apply to the preview window, and not the editing window. In other words, none of the background changes that I make appear in the editing window at all. If, for example, I change the background to a dark color or an image, it will appear (nonwithstanding the issues above) only in the preview window, and not the main editing frame. This makes it difficult or impossible to edit the slide, because the font will change to a lighter font--consistent with the preview window change--and if this is white, you have a white font on a white background. Basically, I can't get background changes to appear in the editing window, plus the other issue here with the preview window. I'm using the 2.3.1 version on Windows XP.
