PPTX containing the table which is not being shown in the converted pdf.

When we are using LibreOffice to convert a pptx file to a pdf file, the resulting PDF is missing components.
The command we are using to convert is:

 libreoffice5.3 --headless --convert-to pdf --outdir . filename.pptx

The first slide in the PPTX has a table which is not showing up in the PDF file. We have attached the PPTX along with this.

We tried opening the pptx using LibreOffice Impress but faced the same issue. The table refuses to appear in the converted PDF file.

When importing, i'm not seeing *any* tables unless I grab a [field] text and drag downwards. Then suddenly a table becomes visible. Seems the borders are imported as 'Set No Borders'.

This table is made with Design in MSO. I guess it takes a whole table design support.
