The original slides come out healthy when opened as .ppt or .pptx but the new ones look different.
Create a new presentation, change the slide master bullets, create new slide. Save it as ppt or pptx. Open the ppt or pptx and create a new slide.
The result described in the summary.

Actually, I went too fast here and I can't reproduce it. How should I reproduce it?
1. Open attachment 136222 [details]
2. Save it as .PPT or .PPTX
3. Open it again?
- run LibreOffice Impress
- create a new presentation
- modify the slide master bullets into your own
- create a new slide with your custom bullets
- save the presentation in odp and ppt or pptx format
- open the ppt or pptx again
- the previously created slide looks OK
- create a new slide with bullets; the bullets will look different, as does the slide master compared to the custom format you created.
The easiest way see what happens:
1-create a file with one slide
1-View / Slide Master
1-save the file as .odp
2-open it again
2-View / Slide Master => unchanged.
3-save it as both .ppt and .pptx
3-View / Slide Master befire closing
3-unchanged yet, but then close the file
4-open the .ppt
4-View / Slide Master => different from what it was
4-close the .ppt
5-open the .pptx
5-View / Slide Master => different from the other two.
So LibreOffice screws up the Slide Master when saved in the Microsoft formats.
Reproduced from scratch by modifying some outline styles.
With PPTX, the whole text box is gone!
With PPT, the bullets are just different.

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!
Bug is still present in LibreOffice 188.8.131.52 (x64).
I changed the 'earliest affected' to 'Inherited From OOo' because I reported it to OOo way back. I received a response from them several years later but deleted it before reading it.
Mark, please see if this is related to fixes you made in Bug 77881.

I think it's not related. The patch is about substituting the character and the font for the bullets. It's for pptx only and won't cause the whole master slide messed up. Note that when I open the saved .pptx in MS Office 2010, the master slide has the correct bullet.The master slide of the .ppt does not have correct master slide though. In this case I can't really judge if this a FILESAVE issue or a FILEOPEN bug. However I think .ppt and .pptx should be granted as different bugs.

slide master with changed bullet created by MSO
Slide master is empty when open the file with LibreOffice6.2. That indicates for PPTX it is more a FILEOPEN issue.

Slide master with changed bullet and referred page created by MSO
The attached slide has a slide master with changed bullet, and a slide referring the slide master. The slide master has been correctly imported to Impress. It seems that Impress only import a slide masters that are referred.
