[Solved] LibreOffice Impress layout changes after upgrade

Postby marcinkk » Wed Apr 11, 2018 3:51 pm

Hi,

I am using now LibreOffice 5.2. I have the presantation made in this version of Impress or maybe even in earlier version. After upgrading to version 5.3 the layout of text in the slides have changed. The problem exists in the version 6.0 too. It is visible on the attaches files:

Screen from LibreOffice 5.2:
LO52lq.jpg
slide from LO 5.2


Screen from LibreOffice 6.0:
LO60lq.jpg
slide from LO 6.0


It is not the problem of Windows 10. I've made a second screenshot on Windows 10 with newly installed LO 6.0, but some time ago I've upgraded LO from 5.2 to 5.3 on Windows 7. When I saw that slides do not look like expected then I made a downgrade to 5.2 and everything returned to normal.

Is it a bug in new LO? Maybe some default setting has changed?

Cheers,
Marcin

A changed interline spacing in your text style?

Yes, "only" interline spacing is changed, but I have a lot of slides.

I can correct the whole presentation to get the required appearance. But I thought that something like "interline spacing" is written somewhere in the file and it should look the same in all versions of OpenOffice/LibreOffice.

Something was changed in the Impress that changed the look of the slides :( The file format has changed? The file format is interpreted differently?

Some day I will find some time to correct all slides in the new LibreOffice. Unfortunately, this little problem makes me have an old version :(
Maybe it can be changed with "only 3 clicks"?

I had a while and I've made another test in newer LibreOffice - 5.4.7, the last version working on XP:

I've opened my presentation and seen interline changed :( So I've opened the "Style Editor" (F11) and changed "Interline spacing" from "Single" to "Proportional 130%" in most of styles. I regained the previous appearance of my presentation after this operation.
Then: The presentation was saved and reopened in LO 5.2 and I've seen huge interlines - 30% higher than original ;)

So it looks like there were a major change in LO, between 5.2 and 5.3 versions, in interpretation of "Interline spacing" value :(
Old slides can be corrected relatively quickly, but the behavior of Impress is rather unexpected :(

I'm using polish version of LO and I made own translation to English of menu/options names when writing the post ... I hope properly.

The other possibility is that it was a bug in the old LO that rounded up the interline spacing. There was such a bug with the interline spacing settings in the paragraph dialog which was fixed in LO 5.3.

I think, that it is the source of my problem:

And just to close the topic:

The hint with styles modification gave mi simple and useful solution to "fix" all my presentations after the LO was fixed :) Thanks.
