Comment 12 Regina Henschel 2022-07-19 23:37:42 UTC
This is not a normal SmartArt as available in the UI of PowerPoint. But the arrows are defined by a custGeom. In a normal SmartArt shapes only shapes with prstGeom are used.

The geometry has a viewBox="0 0 0 0" but the subView is missing. The conversion from EMU to Hmm is missing.

The rectangle of the arrows is on the correct place, but the path of the arrows is rendered at totally wrong place.
