One slide from the file, fails as well
Impress 3.3.1 doesn't show some math related symbols in a ppt file. When I double click any of the equations in the file, it shows a 'General error' (Oracle's OOo v. 3.2 just dies without any info when I try to do the same)
Ths is on Gentoo amd64. I don't know which version of MSO was used to create the file.
Radek, could you have a look at this one or reassign if needed?

GDB backtrace from OOo 3.2.something
Since OOo 3.2 exited with a segfault, I could get a backtrace. LibreOffice just shows a 'General error' dialog box - I have no idea how to get debugging information from it.
Reproducible with 'LibreOffice 3.3.1, Mac OSX 10.6.6, Dutch UI'. Think this is an 'all platform' bug.
Clicking on the math formulas in impress works well with Version 188.8.131.52 (Build ID: 7545bee9c2a0782548772a21bc84a9dcc583b89) on Windows 7. Is this still a problem on Linux?
MS Office 2010 says this presentation file is corrupted.
In LibreOffice 184.108.40.206 compiled on gentoo amd64, Impress no longer throws an error while I click on the equation.
1. Several equations are still rendered with math symbols replaced by some nonsense characters
2. It is not possible to edit the equations - double clicking does nothing.
I don't know if those are bugs or some missing features.
The attached file is one slide from a PPT presentation made with MSO (unknown version) and then saved with LO 3.3.1. Original slides were shown to us using MSO and I've never seen any error while our professor opened them. Also the equations were rendered correctly. I'm probably not allowed to upload the original file, but I can send it by email if that could help.
Same as comment 0 :
Clicking & moving equations works well. But double clicking generates: General OLE error.
Tested on LO 220.127.116.11 (Win7 32bit)
Set Platform : All -> per comment 3 & comment 6
Maybe I'm missing something but with 4.2 master on Bodhi Linux - all equations look fine to me & no errors are thrown out when I double click -- although it asks me what I want to use to open it which I find to be slightly weird.
If not - a PDF of the original document for comparison purposes would be nice.
Marking as NEEDINFO just until we get clarification of what the issues still are on 4.0.3 (or even better, 4.1 beta2 or RC)
Once it's clarified what the problem now is mark as UNCONFIRMED again - if it's related to symbols having a document that shows what the PPT is supposed to look like would be nice. Even a jpeg of the single slide.

Result of PDFcreator from PPV 14
I've just check that with PPV 14 (see attached). Indeed we can see some symbol/character that incorrectly shown using LO 18.104.22.168.

Screenshot from LO 126.96.36.199
I've just check again using LO 188.8.131.52 Ubuntu 12.04 32bit.
Symbol & character correctly shown (see attached). As far as I remember, 4.0.3 also produced same result (correct).
So it's regression on 4.0.4 release
So is it still NEEDINFO or can we mark as NEW?
Perhaps you could decide. I tested that 4.0.4 showing incorrect symbols & double clicking also generated something weird.
But you said that symbols correct with 4.2 master. Maybe that symbols could be corrected on 4.0.5?
Or I'm just an idiot and missed the incorrect symbols ;) Is there any way that we can get a document that highlights (circled or some such) the errors?

Wrong symbols in LO 184.108.40.206
Of course not :) it's not invisible to the eye among lot of symbols there. Please see attached file with red circled, that symbols replaced by "big dot".
Interesting - yeah looks good with 4.2 master so marking as WFM
@Jiri - you should see a fix in 4.2 and probably 4.1 RC (available now on pre-release page)

Formula Shown Correct
I can still reproduce the bug using 220.127.116.11.alpha0+, but it might be some Linux specific problem. Joel's screenshot looks almost right, but there are still some rendering glitches - the dots in the centre of closing parentheses.
I attached screenshot form LO 18.104.22.168.alpha0+ and MS PowerPoint viewer.

Correct rendering in MSO PPT viewer

Incorrect rendering - LO 22.214.171.124.alpha0+
Looks like inconsistency in rendering with LO 4.x.x:
- LO 126.96.36.199 (comment 10) -> some symbols replaced by dots
- LO 4.2 master (comment 17) -> middle of right parenthesis replaced by divider mark
- LO 4.2 alpha0+ (comment 20) -> many symbols & parenthesis replaced by wrong characters (so it's the worst result)
Best result (correct) produced by LO 188.8.131.52 (comment 11)
So we should reopened it right? Can we mark regression against 3.6?
I see correct rendering in LibO 184.108.40.206 under Win7x64
feel free to reopen if you still reproduce the bug
