Description Andreas 2022-03-09 14:50:00 UTC
I saved a set of slides as pptx. After opening the Slides with MS PowerPoint 2016, all Slides are without content in main view or presentation modus. But thumbnails / miniature views show content.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Save Impress Slides as pptx
2. Start MS PowerPoint
3. Open File

Actual Results:
Slides are opened. Background of Master is visible, but all slides are shown without content. After a few seconds content is visible in thumbnails resp. miniature views, but not in main view. Presentation Modus also shows empty slides.

Expected Results:
Slides with content

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Could you attach a minimal example file (even 1 slide is enough) that shows this issue?

I've tried some other odp-Files. Some of them can be opened with PowerPoint after export, some show the same error. I cannot see the cause of this at the moment.

>  some show the same error.
Are you saying that MS PowerPoint is giving an error message at load time?
