Comment 7 Regina Henschel 2019-07-08 19:46:25 UTC
The file "sample file" has a different root cause. It has a special shape, which in current PowerPoint versions would be become a "SmartArt".

The problem in bug 126184 treats problems with single lines inside custom shapes. The testdocument "another document affected" belongs to bug 126184.

sample file saved in MSO as PPTX

This is PPT bug only. Sample file saved in MSO as PPTX, option Shapes, opens OK in LO. Sample file saved in MSO as PPTX, option SmartArt, is wrong also in MSO.
