Saving a chart with blocks that use hatching as PPTX (regardless whether
the original came as PPTX or ODP) loses the hatching and replaces it with
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open sample document (in ODP format).
2. Save as PPTX.
3. Close and reopen saved PPTX.
Observe the difference where what used to be blocks with hatching now
show in solid color.
Document does not visually change when saving as PPTX.

This originally came from a PPTX document, and the import from PPTX

The example file opened in current LO 6.3
A source of this problem is that there is a 0 line spacing set in the chart data series, but it is not displayed as such.
A hatching with 0 line spacing is indeed a different way of saying "solid fill".
Another angle is that in MSO it is not possible to select an arbitrary line spacing - this is hidden in the UI as a property of the preset patterns.

Exported pptx with newly set 0 line spacing
If I try to set a 0 line spacing in a current LO version, the exported line spacing value is set to 0.05 cm and not a solid fill anymore.

Exported pptx with newly set 0 line spacing in PP and Impress
LO no longer saves 0 line spacing to pptx, so it's not possible to export the solid fill instead of hatching.

Addition: the original file can still be exported with solid fill, but any newly created hatching with 0 line spacing cannot.
Maybe we can live with that, and close this as WFM?
