Description Thomas Weiland 2017-01-13 10:48:51 UTC
Create a new presenation, set page orientation to portrait and save it as MS PPTX. Then open the file again.
Now the page orientation is set to landscape, but it is displayd in portrait mode.

Exporting presentation to PDF works fine - it creates portrait.
Printing the presenation creates always a print in landscape, even if I set the orientation to portrait in the printer settings. As workaround I have to change the setting for the pages every time I open the PPTX.

When saving in ODP it works normal.

Maybe the page orientation can not be saved in the PPTX, but then LibreOffice should have an look to page width and page height and define landscape or portrait mode according to these values.

On pc Debian x86-64 with master sources updated today, I could reproduce this.

I noticed several things:
- if I use ppt instead of pptx, I don't reproduce this
- if I create a brand new file with 2 slides in portrait, when exporting in pptx and open it again, the first is in landscape but the second one in portrait.

I put a break on SdPage::SetOrientation and tested it with this 2 slides pptx, here's what I got:

Not just pptx, but with odp files. 
Trying to print the notes pages of a presentation.
Even if printer settings are set to Portrait, 8.5x11, Duplex Long Edge, main tray. Selecting the print menu, setting "Print Document" for Notes. The Printer Properties has the Orientation "Grey" fixed at Landscape.   

From the Notes Master Page, the Paper Format is Letter 8.5x11 Portrait
