Description dgreve 2001-11-25 19:09:52 UTC
Problem and how to reproduce it:
1)	Create a blank presentation document with plain text somewhere on the 
2)	Make sure border of text to animate is selected.  From Tools menu, 
choose Text option.
3)	Choose Text Animation tab.  In effect drop down menu, choose blink.
4)	Under Animation Cycles, deselect continuous. In the field to the right 
of continuous, enter 32768 and click OK.
5)	Click Start Slide Show icon.  Notice the text blinking continuously.
6)	Press escape.  Go to Tools menu, choose Text option.  Choose Text 
Animation tab. 
7)	The number of Animation Cycles indicates 1.  However, if the slide show 
is ever run, the text will blink continuously. (or at least many, many times)
8)	This problem occurs with any number greater than 32768

Related Notes:  
a) The max number that the Animation cycles field can hold is 2,147,483,647. If 
the increment button is pressed, the number turns over to 1 and the text will 
only blink once. b) If a very large number is entered (9 repeated 10000 times) 
the numbers overlap and are illegible.

Bug is reproducible. The number for 'continous' should be saved and 
not fall back to one.
Comment 2 bettina.haberer 2001-11-26 12:43:17 UTC
Hello Armin. The problem, that the changed counter for 'continous' is 
not saved, does no more occure in an actual version (641q1). But 
plaese have a look at the other points of this issue.

Related Note (b), about the illegible numbers does not seem to affect 
release 638c, only affects 638.
Comment 4 Armin Le Grand 2001-12-21 12:41:19 UTC
Original issue: Indeed, from 32768 and higher, the number is reset to 
1. This seems to be a bug, don't know ATM, i'll have to take a look.
To a,: That's wanted. When the maximum is reached the SpinField goes 
back to minimum. To b,: Could not reproduce. Whatever number bigger 
than 2.147.483.647 is entered is clipped to that value. Could not get 
numbers to overlap. When this happens again, this should be reported 
as a bug for the SpinFields -> base technology.
