If we open a PPTX presentation or create a new presentation, save it as PPTX and reopen, all the bounding boxes on the elements of the slide are missing/invisible.
By bounding box I refer to the blue border that appears on the edges of text boxes when editing the text inside them to make them easy to grab, handle, resize etc.
This occurs even if we open an existing PPTX or if we create a new one and save as PPTX.
ODP format is not affected and works fine, bounding boxes are visible. Only PPTX are affected.
Thank you for reporting the bug. Please attach a sample document, as this makes it easier for us to verify the bug.
I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to 'UNCONFIRMED' once the requested document is provided.

A shape after loading the example file
Looks like these are two, slightly different shape objects before saving as PPTX and after.

Setting to NEW, although this may be just a consequence of the PPTX conversion.
