Save presentation to PPTX, and any objects/drawing objects which, when F2 -> text box has been inserted (or double click on object and type in text), and all text and object parameters are left at default, text displays in the 'middle' of the object.
When said object is displayed in MS powerpoint, the text anchored to the object is at the extreme left side of object. Re-open the PPTX in libreoffice, and everything displays fine.
does not help to change:
-text anchor point (edit style, text, text anchor)
-text paragraph 'alignment' or justification
Steps to Reproduce:
1. LibreOffice -> New -> Presentation
2. Clear the page of all objects. (select all, delete)
3. (drawing toolbar) Lines and arrows -> line/line ends with arrow -> draw horizontally.
4. double click on newly created line/arrow -> add some text.
5. press esc. save as 2013 PPTX file.
6. open with powerpoint.
text no longer 'in the middle' of the lines(s). Text on the left (in powerpoint)
text in the middle of line(s)/object(s).
User Profile Reset: No
In MS PPT - the only seemingly useful option which achieves a similar result, which only seems to exist in MS PPT 2007 is to convert the selected object, and it seems to result in an additional anchor point in the middle where the text jumps to. Not a viable solution.

example presentation as exported to PPTX with two lines
This might be MS being completely retarded as usual and their behaviour is PPTx 2013 display is messed up for the 'correct' tags, but it would be nice if display would work.
I surmise that the XML MS expects in PPTX is not "how MS would do it".
