Sample PPTX

The attached PPTX, created in PowerPoint contains a single slide piece of text in a text box, with Text Fill (Drawing Tools / Format tab) set to No Fill is invisible in PowerPoint.

In Impress the text is black (and after rountrip, in PowerPoint as well).

Not sure what can be done in Impress, setting color to white doesn't do it, as the text has to be invisible (ie. with any background).

Observed using LO & 3.3.0 / Windows 7.

"Reference" PPT

Apparently what happens in the case of PPT is that such text is removed, see the attached sample PPT saved from the previous PPTX in PowerPoint.

I've just submitted a patch to gerrit < https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/#/c/80743/ > that makes Impress behave the same way as Writer, However, the problem is that LibreOffice doesn't support fill:none for text
