[Solved] Slide's Not Advancing

Postby Steve5 » Thu Jan 14, 2021 10:23 pm

Using Libre Office:

I have my laptop hooked up to a monitor. I have it set to "Extend" so I can see the slide, notes for that slide and the next slide on my laptop, with only the slide on the monitor. But when I click to advance to the the next slide, it advances on the monitor, but not my laptop. Why isn't it advancing on my laptop?

I realized that my right-click was disabled in the touchpad settings. So I clicked the box. But when I click, or tap, it's still not advancing on my laptop (while hooked up to the monitor). When I unplug the monitor, I see the slide on my laptop, but when I tap or click, I get taken back to my Notes page and a blank window appears, which eventually fills out to be the "Next," "Previous," "Go to Slide" window.

Thanks.

So, this problem is the same with AOO?

Does it move if you press the Page Up/Page Down buttons?

It's working correctly in Open Office.

In Libre Office, clicking or tapping on the arrows doesn't advance the slide on my laptop - but they do advance on the monitor. The other buttons - Close, zoom, restart, etc. - don't work either, but "Exchange" works.

I also have a wireless clicker, that's not advancing the slide in my laptop either.

In the Slide Show settings, I checked the box to "Change slides manually," didn't work. And I switched the display setting from "Auto External (Display 2)," to "Display 2 (external)." That didn't work either.

Should I try uninstalling it and reinstall?

I do have the 64-bit version.

Useless if you don't reset the user profile.

If the problem still occurs, you have maybe found a bug.
Note, that >LibO 7 is "fresh" ( :? ) and not the stable release.

I uninstalled it and installed the older version, 6.4.7.2, and it's working. The slides are advancing on my laptop.

Not old but stable.
A good behavior will be to report this on Bugzilla. This advance the project too.
