I create presentations on a weekly basis and have to save many to PPT/X. These days, there is hardly ever a reason to massage the output. Though I do admit, I avoid fancy stuff and stick to the basics, so WELL DONE guys! THANK YOU!

There are some issues though, which should be easy to fix (compare PPT and PPTX - problem mostly when save to PPTX):

1. TABS are lost in transition (see slide 7 in examples)
2. Font size in the empty rows is not as in original (slide 7)
3. When shrink text to fit box, this is lost in PPTX (to fix, I choose Master, then the all come right when I click on one of them)
4. Page number is lost in footer, and ti does not place it in the the same place as the original. This may be because PPTX has a whole bunch of Master pages for different formats which are created automatically, but the slide no is not propagated to the additional master pages.

Actual Results:  
see the example files

Expected Results:
see the example files - compare ODP to PPT and PPTX

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Hello Elmar,
Thank you very much for reporting this.
Could it be possible you report each problem in a different bug instead of many problems in the same bug?
This make bugs triaging much easier to the QA team.OTOH, check for duplicates before reporting new bugs.

All right, looks like Elmar opened bug 111857 + bug 111858 + bug 111859 + bug 111860 for this. Closing.
