Image of the formula in the uploaded slide is displaced in Impress and covering the text while it's correct in powerpoint.

For the comparison, I'm uploading pics of how it appears in powerpoint which can be compared to document uploaded opened by Impress. Or one can open the document in powerpoint oneself.

Quoting from AskLibreOffice:
"Not the image is displaced, but the outline-textbox is filled differently. The outline-textbox has the property "Shrink on overflow" enabled. It seems LibreOffice and PowerPoint interpret it differently. And in PowerPoint there is an empty line after the last text in the outline-textbox, which is not there in LibreOffice. At least this missing line looks like an error in LibreOffice."

Both PowerPoint and Impress ignore blank lines when auto-fitting.

Auto-adjusting text size is so subjective that I wouldn't call this a bug. If the user doesn't want the textbox to be covered by the image, then the textbox should just be shrunk in size.
