Description patrick.tague 2019-01-10 01:27:17 UTC
Curved connectors that are modified (e.g., stretched in one direction or the other for better appearance) in a slide lose the modification in the copy when a slide is duplicated.  The duplicate slide contains the curved connector, but the modifications are lost and revert to the default connector layout.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create two boxes, then connect them with a curved connector.
2. Grab the mid-point box on the curved connector and drag it to shift the layout in some direction, release to see modified connector.
3. In the 'Slides' pane, right click the slide and select 'Duplicate Slide'.

Actual Results:
Curved connector in duplicated slide does not align with the curved connector in the original slide.

Expected Results:
Alignment / layout should be preserved upon duplication

Reproducible: Always
