If are a power user of LibreOffice/OpenOffice’s Impress application you may find bugs from time to time. In this instance, I was trying to change out a Master Page template with a newer one and all the sudden I go to my Slide Notes view and notice that the thumbnail is gone from that view. It’s on other pages with a different Master Page template, but not on one.
It looks like this…
- First you create a new Master Page template.
- Then edit it to mirror the original Master Page template that is missing the thumbnail.
- Then apply the New Master Page template to your desired slides.
Poof… like magic it should add your thumbnail back in your Slide Notes.
Yes this is a less than ideal solution, but at least it works. I’m still trying to narrow down the cause, then I’ll submit a bug report to the open source project.
