Description Timur 2016-10-25 10:58:05 UTC
Looking at attachment 114355 [details] from Bug 90237, I extracted slide 1 here which has multiple filesave bugs. 
This bug is about another grey line which is added (in the upper half of the slide) when it's saved as PPTX and reopen (RT).

I notice that in OO, fileopen was very wrong, better but not good in LO 3.3. Somewhere around LO 3.5 fileopen went OK. Not a regression. Fileopen is OK now with 5.3 master, while filesave as pptx is still not correct. 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Save as PPTX
2. Open in LO or MSO

Actual Results:  
another grey line added 

Expected Results:
only the original grey line present

Reproducible: Always

3. Open saved in LO or MSO and see another grey line
Comment 8 Regina Henschel 2019-05-06 12:57:25 UTC
The line exists in the original pptx file too. It is "Straight Connector 9" on "Retrospect Slide Master". That is the master slide, which is the base master slide in PowerPoint.
Comment 9 Timur 2019-05-07 09:32:27 UTC
Thank you. Filesave problem because line is wrongfully visible when RT PPTX opens either with LO or MSO.

This has hierarchical master slides in PP and Impress does not support this feature to begin with.

Dear Timur,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
