Description Aron Budea 2018-06-09 14:37:38 UTC
Created attachment 142623 [details]
Sample ODP

The attached presentation contains a single piece of text with Swivel entrance animation.
Save it as PPT, and reopen it.

=> The animation is disregarded, the text simply appears during slideshow (though it still shows as swivel in the animation list).

Observed using LO 6.1 beta1 & 3.3.0 / Windows 7.

It seems like swivel animation isn't interpreted properly in PPTX format, either, see bug 113818.

Interestingly, the same effect in a PPT created in PowerPoint is played fine.

Verified in LO 6.2 master build (e055b4a0fc23e1d0ad5d498f9195790dd41f6b3e) / Windows 7, thanks for the fix, Mark!

As a complication, bug 119629 is a follow-up about the PPT being roundtripped in PowerPoint.
