Description NISZ LibreOffice Team 2020-10-22 14:41:38 UTC
This is a continuation of bug #101122
It was about two separate problems, of which the fill-related one was solved. The remaining problem is losing the resize handles:

Open  attachment #126406 [details]. It contains a custom shape, which shows a sine curve and has two handles. Save the file to pptx and open it in Powerpoint. Click the shape. Notice that it has no handles.

If you set saving to ODF1.1 format and save it in that format by LibreOffice, and let PowerPoint open this .odp document, filling and handles are correct in PowerPoint and remain correct, if PowerPoint saves it to .pptx. So .pptx is capable to work with such shapes.

Dear NISZ LibreOffice Team,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from https://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
