Description Thorsten Wagner 2021-05-26 19:56:53 UTC
Description:
Paragraph attributes (e.g. tabs, spacing) within text boxes are not exported to OOXML (PPTX) correctly. It seems to work for the old MS Office binary format (PPT). Furthermore paragraph attributes are no longer the same when opening exported files in LO again (round-trip) for both formats.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open ODF test file attached
2. Export to PPT and PPTX
3. Open exported files with MS Office and look at the paragraph attributes
4. Open exported files with LO and look at the paragraph attributes

Actual Results:
Paragraph attributes are lost for PPTX and are reimported different for PPTX and PPT as well.

Expected Results:
Paragraph attributes are preserved after export and remain the same after reimport.


Reproducible: Always

The example file in Impress and its PPTX version in PP - indent before

Left indent setting is also completely gone.

The before-after paragraph spacing however looks to be saved ~correctly: the 2 cm setting is 28 pt in Impress and 28.35 in PP while the 1 cm setting is 14pt in Impress and 14.17 pt in PP. 
Maybe there is a bit of rounding error there.
