Description Aron Budea 2017-08-29 11:20:40 UTC
Created attachment 135847 [details]
Sample PPTX with zoom animation

The attached presentation contains a single shape with zoom animation.
Save it as a new PPTX in Impress. The resulting file opens with repair in PowerPoint.

Observed using LO 6.0 daily build (2017-08-27_23:19:54, 9600f5179795380749aa5a7c9fa0bf5387d2b95f), / Windows 7.

Roundtripping a PPT with the same animation opens fine in PowerPoint.

Validating in Open XML SDK 2.5 I get:

AttributeNameList - The element has incomplete content
VariantValue - The element has incomplete content
Comment 2 Aron Budea 2017-09-18 11:03:55 UTC
One of the issues is that the <p:val> element of type p:fltVal is not exported.

original snippet:
    <p:tav tm="0">
        <p:fltVal val="0"/>
    <p:tav tm="100000">
        <p:strVal val="#ppt_w"/>

exported snippet:
    <p:tav tm="0">
    <p:tav tm="100000">
        <p:strVal val="#ppt_w"/>

The code doesn't like p:fltVal for Width attribute, see what's in the 'if' around here:

Not sure what's allowed, since conversion seems to be involved in general, but maybe interpreting a double with the value 0 could be allowed there?
Adding that still exports a p:strVal instead of p:fltVal, though, so further changes are needed.
Comment 3 Aron Budea 2017-09-20 01:59:29 UTC
My previous comment is mostly incorrect, the linked function is about converting values, which doesn't have to be done in this case. Nevertheless, the fix is on its way.
