Sorry, do not agree nor do I see an issue. By design LibreOffice Impress opens
into *edit* mode, focus is on the document canvas and cursor (Lft,Rgt,Up,Down)
position the canvas. Suitable tools are provided to advance through the
slides/pages (as this is also default in Draw).

That is that <PgDown>, <PgUp>, <End>, <Home> are immediately available to
advance between slides/pages. 

In edit mode the opening focus and cusor movement is for editing, it is not for
review. That is and has been the default from the StarOffice era.
