3) What is expected to happen in LibreOffice Impress via the Terminal:

cd ~/Desktop && wget https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libreoffice/+bug/281985/+attachment/380358/+files/demo.odp && loimpress -nologo demo.odp

save the file in .ppt, close and open the .ppt and it looks the same as it did in demo.odp.

4) What happens instead is the background is resized.

Failed to reproduce on LibreOffice 3.4  340m1(Build:103) on OpenSuse Linux.

Background is the same size in .ppt and .odp files.

Comment 5 sasha.libreoffice 2012-01-16 04:41:33 UTC
reproduced in LibO 3.5.0 beta 2 on Fedora 64 bit
-if save as ppt and then File->Relaod, background becomes small picture in right bottom corner
-if save as pptx and reload, background disappears
Comment 6 A (Andy) 2015-02-08 13:56:56 UTC
Buggy behaviour reproducible with LO, Win 8.1.

PPT: With LO ok, the background image is there as expected -> not reproducible

PPTX: The background image gots lost -> reproducible

But another thing I recognized: If I open the ppt and pptx files then they are shown with Grid Lines (VIEW -> GRID -> DISPLAY GRID), but this was not the case for the odp file.  Looks for me like another bug.

Can reproduce this bug when exported to pptx.
Exported ppt file is working fine.

I don't see grid lines in any file.

This bug was about exporting to .ppt and that has been resolved. The issue with .pptx is filed in another bug (bug 108356).
