Description Timur 2018-10-19 10:54:22 UTC
In Bug 120028 filopen of PPTX shape text with multiple columns was fixed, as seen for attachment 145086 [details] in attachment 145798 [details].

What remains and is a follow-up is the issue with 3 columns that can be tested with PPTX attachment 145366 [details]. Look is not the same as in MSO. 

I'd say "minor". Although backported, I'll set from 6.2.
May need more detailed looking into shape type and size, for not being a duplicate.

Created attachment 172733 [details]
The example file in PP and todays nightly

Looks a bit better after bug #118458 was fixed, but not perfect in:

Version: (x64) / LibreOffice Community
Build ID: 31ed81ea71a20ec119805f66a42f99b3f80d2dc5
CPU threads: 4; OS: Windows 10.0 Build 18363; UI render: default; VCL: win
Locale: el-GR (hu_HU); UI: en-US
Calc: CL

There are one more lines placed in the first two columns than in PP.

However clicking inside the 3 columns part and out of it changes the layout to match PP.

Dear Timur,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Warm Regards,
QA Team
