Description dcam 2008-01-24 12:26:27 UTC
In some circumstances, Impress fails to save deletions properly, because having
deleted text from the presentation, it reappears after saving the presentation
and reloading it.

For example, try this:

1.  download
2.  open it in Impress and you can see that each slide has a picture with a text
box over the top - the text isn't part of the photos
3.  there are some performance problems editing the text in the document as
reported in but ignore
those for now
4.  on any of the slides, try clicking three times on the text and then
highlighting all the text with CTRL-A, then pressing delete so that the text
goes away
5.  now save the presentation
6.  close it
7.  load it back in

Actual Result:

I find that the deleted text is BACK after save/load even though I had deleted
the text.


I find that if instead of pressing delete to delete the text, I press SPACE
after highlighting the text, then this issue doesn't occur.

I can reproduce the bug.
When I delete the text in the textbox but not the textbox itself the text
reappears after saving and reload.
As a workarround delete the textbox and not only the content of the textbox.
