There are the same problems when using the Libreoffice program or Libreoffice as command line. Libreoffice displays false previews in the sidebar on the left. This is the same false preview as the command line conversion to pdf does. For example: gradient from powerpoint is not shown, headers / logos are not visible at all.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.open the pptx file and compare it to powerpoint (false preview is shown in the left sidebar.
2.use libreoffice as command line and convert the pptx file to pdf
soffice.exe --headless --convert-to pdf originalFileRef
(or open the file with libreoffice and take a look at the previews in the left sidebar)
false previews: headers are missing, gradients missing, ...
same result as powerpoint shows. (The headers are actually shown in the big view but not in the small preview)

Tried bibisecting on Linux with 43all, but unfortunately ran into a lot of
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'com::sun::star::uno::DeploymentException'
so had to skip far too many times for the result to be useful.
The problem is between last36onmaster and last35onmaster
Maybe someone wants to try and confirm if they get the launch error as well?

Urgh, never mind: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA/Bibisect#Unable_to_start_soffice
I tried again and the range is https://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/log/?qt=range&q=c77918bb03974ff9be90c889f77e62ea0755052f...877c96a601e6e50d0c7a8f704d57baec22f089c5
Dear Philipp Petschner,
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 http://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
Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: https://kiwiirc.com/nextclient/irc.freenode.net/#libreoffice-qa
Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!
thanks for getting back to me.
The bug is still present in the current version of Libreoffice:
Version: 184.108.40.206 (x64)
Build ID: 1ec314fa52f458adc18c4f025c545a4e8b22c159
CPU threads: 8; OS: Windows 10.0; UI render: default; VCL: win;
Locale: en-US (en_AT); UI-Language: en-US
It can be still be replicated with the original sample files and all issues appear to be the same as with older Libreoffice Versions.
