I have on my disk quite a lot of old presentations from earlier versions of OpenOffice and even StarOffice (.sxi format). They were created with various versions of OpenOffice/StarOffice, some on Linux, some on Windows, some by me, some by other persons. They all opened correctly in OpenOffice 3.2.0 on my old computer with Ubuntu 10.04.
However, when viewed with recent LibreOffice (220.127.116.11) on Ubuntu 20.04, there are no bullets in those presentations that were visible in the old OpenOffice. Instead of bulleted list, there are just paragraphs of text one under the other, usually with first line of the paragraph being "outdented".
This is an example how a slide looks in the old OpenOffice (correct): https://ask.libreoffice.org/upfiles/15943239643635814.png
This is an example how the same slide looks in the current LibreOffice (incorrect): https://ask.libreoffice.org/upfiles/15943240062417456.png
When I switch to Template view in Impress, I can see the bullets on the slide template, but they aren't displayed on the actual slides.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open one of the following sample presentations: http://rafa.eu.org/share/lo_issue/prezentacja.sxi or http://rafa.eu.org/share/lo_issue/lomza.odp
There are no bullets anywhere in the presentation.
There should be bullets - the following exported PDFs show how the presentations should look like: http://rafa.eu.org/share/lo_issue/prezentacja.pdf and http://rafa.eu.org/share/lo_issue/lomza.pdf
User Profile Reset: Yes
OpenGL enabled: Yes
If there is a simple method (and preferrably, scriptable) to modify the old files so that they look correctly in the recent LO, I would also gladly accept this as a workaround.
No repro LO 3.6, repro 4.0 and 7.1+.
I set New unless some explanation is made.
Workaround: resave in LO 3.6.
-> Workaround install 18.104.22.168 and save a copy. This worked for the sample file
The workaround to resave the document works also in OO 3.2, thanks.
When resaving the old documents I found out that not only bullets, but also numbers in numbered lists are lost in the same way.
When I open the file with extension .sxi:
