.pptx file to reproduce the problem

Steps to reproduce:
- open the attached pptx file in Impress

=> the text is composed of symbols in Impress, while it should be latin characters.

I am using LibreOffice on debian linux jessie.

What is the original font on the pptx?
Comment 5 Frederic Parrenin 2017-03-20 08:54:55 UTC
The original font is: Arial (Corps).
Comment 6 Buovjaga 2017-03-25 19:14:54 UTC
In 5.3/5.4, the character formatting is said to be Wingdings (for me substituted because I don't have the font). In 3.6 it is empty. In 3.3 it is Arial.
