Description Valek Filippov 2021-06-23 21:56:58 UTC
LO shows the diagram on the slide with connectors routed on the wrong paths.

Steps to Reproduce:
Open attached PPT file.

Actual Results:
LO draws connectors started from the left sides of the shapes and ended on the right sides of the shapes.

Expected Results:
Connectors should start from the right sides and end on the left (or top) sides.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
Minified from AOO i#74168.

If re-saved in PPTX, LO opens it w/o a problem.

This was also bad in 3.3.0, except a small difference: the two shapes in the 3rd row were connected correctly in that version.

That small regression happened in the following range, which is a single commit in bibisect-41max:

Probably one of Armin's many commits ported from AOO.

The shapes have a 180deg rotation in LibreOffice but not in PowerPoint 365. Why?

The import is still wrong with Version: (X86_64) / LibreOffice Community
