The presentation objects title and subtitle, and the graphic object text 
box are OK. But the presentation object outline is missing to show its 
edges, if it is in edit mode.

Bug 116342 is about the default for uno:PickThrough ("Select text area 
only" in UI).

The frame in Writer has a similar problem, only Writer has the option to 
turn on text boundaries.

Michael, you need not search the edges. If you are in edit mode, press 
ESC-key to leave edit mode. It goes to object mode and you will see the 
edges. ESC-key has the advantage, that you do not accidentally activate 
a different object. Of cause this is only a workaround.

Kind regards
