Comment 1 Xisco Faulí 2017-11-14 11:00:49 UTC
It seems the behaviour of the animation improved after 386748d514fe1c84e4d373b828841308580665a8.
@Regina, would you mind taking a look at this issue when you have some time?

If the shape should end up like the initial position, the shape end sloped however the text was animated.

Tested on :
    • Operating system : Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bits.
    • LibreOffice : Version: (x64)

Comment 3 Regina Henschel 2017-11-15 13:13:40 UTC
The setting "Text animation" of page "Effect" of the animation properties is wrong. It has "All at once" but it should be "Letter by Letter".

The dialog in PowerPoint 2010 looks identical to the dialog in LibreOffice, so that you can compare the settings easily. In PowerPoint you need to open the "Animation pane" to access the dialog.

I have tested it in Version:
