PDF exported from PowerPoint 2013
please create different bugs for different problems with PPTX->PDF and PPTX->SVG
I assumed the SVG and PDF are related because both are vector formats.
Please ignore the SVG for now and let's focus on the PDF.
When I open the PDF exported from Impress in Inkscape I can see many small rectangles. The PDF exported from PowerPoint has a single element.
Can you attach result of PDF export from MS Power Point?
