Sample slide (in PPTX format)

Comparing the sample slide in Office 365/Impress and LibreOffice I 
observe two key differences:

 - LibreOffice renders the contents of the text box as a bullet list,
   adding a bullet point at the beginning

 - LibreOffice shows the text box as half the width

Comment 4 Gerald Pfeifer 2021-03-07 10:05:20 UTC
This appears to be somewhat of a regression, somewhere between 6.4 and 7.0:

LibreOffice Version:

...renders that text box as desired in terms of full width (alas
still with the bullet), though it does include an additional,
undesired textbox which was addressed with version 7.0.
Comment 5 Timur 2021-03-09 07:53:29 UTC
This bug is about half width of text box. Repro 7.2+.
I bibisected in 7.0 and culprit is fix in bug 133015. There are more commits there (with different regressions) and this one is 8faf8... Inherit numCol...
Comment 6 Timur 2021-03-09 08:20:18 UTC
As for bullet, it's also a regression, looks the same one and even cause of all this, so be kept here. 

Bullet wasn't three in 6.2 oldest and all was correct, but 6.2 master has no proper text at all, just text from master slide. 

Change in 6.3 bibisect wasn't quite correct for this bug example, text appeared but with bullet and master text. Seems that it wasn't bug report related fix, but general fix by Noel.

tdf#120028 PPTX import: map shapes with multiple columns to table shapes
Longer term the core Impress shape has to be improved so that it can have text in multiple columns.
Shorter term, map text with multiple columns to table shapes, that gives correct layout in many cases and requires changes to the import filter only.

tdf#133015 Inherit numCol from placeholder.

I raise importance because this is not a single document but a series of changes that didn't fix the first regression. 
Adding Miklos to CC, please see.
Comment 8 Miklos Vajna 2021-03-17 15:45:04 UTC
I think this is essentially a duplication of bug 140022, which is about proper core support for multi-column shape text. Let's get back to this bug once that one is resolved.

This looks good in todays nightly, no more two columns layout using table and extra bullet:
