Sample PPTX with no text
- Roundtrip the attached "empty" PPT and PPTX samples in Impress.
- Open the resulting files either in Impress or PowerPoint.
=> The placeholder text boxes are empty (they can't even be selected in Impress). Since they're there when the files are first opened, this is an export issue.
Observed using LO 126.96.36.199 & 188.8.131.52 / Windows 7.
Using the older version results in other issues as well that are gone by now. Possibly the issue with placeholder texts being lost during import was fixed in bug 103792.
The PPT shows additional oddities upon opening, those will be reported in a different ticket.

The example file in PP and its Impress-saved version in 7.2
This is still a problem in:
Version: 220.127.116.11.alpha0+ (x64) / LibreOffice Community
Build ID: 7eb289c49cc7245ef3001a39be0c15d06bbe875b

However, the shapes are retained in fact, they are visible in the Navigator.
They don't have a visible border and they lose the "Click to add Text" placeholders which makes them practically invisible.
Attila Bakos (NISZ) committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":
tdf#111903 tdf#137152 PPTX export: fix placeholders
It will be available in 7.2.0.
The patch should be included in the daily builds available at
https://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/ in the next 24-48 hours. More
information about daily builds can be found at:
Affected users are encouraged to test the fix and report feedback.
