Bug summary report
OS: Windows 10 Pro
Apache OpenOffice 4.1.5 Impress 
AOO415m1(Build:9789)  -  Rev. 1817496 2017-12-11 17:25

Open impress and create a new empty presentation with the standard default choices on the wizard.
Under the properties tab on the right-hand side of Impress, there is a paragraph section that is visible after selecting the text box field on the slide.

Expand the Position and Size tab to see the similar fields as the Paragraph tab.

Steps to reproduce:
Click off of the text box (outside of the blue highlighted border in the grey area) and back on to the text box.
Do this twice and the unit of measure for the paragraph spacing changes of its own volition. 

The first screen shot (Capture1.PNG) shows the unit of measure as cm, the second screenshot (Capture2.PNG) shows it in inches after the indicated steps

I can confirm this on Linux Mint 18.3 
with AOO420m1(Build:9800) - Rev. 1844412
and AOO416m1(Build:9790) - Rev. 1844227


When I first click into the title or text box the unit is shown as inch and changes with low delay to cm.

The permanent change of the unit back to inch is only shown, if the slide has a layout wich includes a text box (wich is the default for the first slide). 

Inserting a second slide with another layout and clicking into the title box or the bullet list of this slide shows cm with low delay but there is no back-changing to inch.

Trying it again at the first slide reproduces the change to inch.

What is the status on this? Is this now an issue or not?

It was verified that this issue is still reproducible on Windows 10, with version 4.1.6

In order to reproduce the issue, there are some configuration settings needed:

Steps to reproduce:
Make sure that the defaults value of 'Unit of measurement' is 'Inch' (Go to Tools>Options>OpenOffice Impress>General)
Open impress and create a new empty presentation with the standard default choices on the wizard.
Under the properties tab on the right-hand side of Impress, there is a paragraph section that is visible after selecting the text box field on the slide. (Only visible when clicking on the border of the text box)
Expand the Position and Size tab to see the similar fields as the Paragraph tab.
Change 'Units of measurement' to Centimeters and repeat the reproduction steps. 

Repeat the following:
Click out off of the text box (outside of the blue highlighted border in the grey area) and back on to the text box and ON THE BORDER OF THE TEXT BOX AND REPEAT THIS SWITCHING BETWEEN THE TITLE AND THE BODY BOXES.
Do this UNTIL The unit of measure for the paragraph spacing changes of its own volition.
