pptx having headings

The titles of following slides appear bigger in powerpoint and smaller in Impress.

For the comparison, I'm uploading gifs of how it appears in powerpoint vs LO.

Could be a font issue. The font used is Calibri. On Linux is Carlito.

Try to change from Calibri to Carlito and see if is bigger and similar.

For the record, the font sizes for the titles in PowerPoint are respectively on each page: 55, 65, 55.

Sizes in LO 7.2 master, on the same system (so, no font substitution): 39.7, 42.5, 39.7

So, it seems the textbox is doing a reducing font size in order to fit the text.

Titles in PPT of the same presentation are imported with the correct size.
