Description dr_tak 2012-01-04 15:49:03 UTC
Problem description: 

Steps to reproduce:

1. Open PPT presentation containing slides depicting MS Excel 2003 graphs pasted as Picture Objects (not bitmap)

2. Try viewing the slide in Edit mode or Slide show mode

Current behavior: Legends, grids and axes are visible in Slideshow mode only, no graph is visible in either modes.

Expected behavior: the entire graphs should be displayed in all cases, including the thumbnails.

Comment 4 dr_tak 2012-04-02 10:04:36 UTC
The slide is displayed best (as it was displayed in Excel) in Neo Office, and somewhat differently (thicker lines and slightly different colors) but still legibly in OpenOffice.

Thanks for attachment
reproduced in 3.3.4 and 3.5.1 on Fedora 64 bit (no graphs)
on Windows not reproducible, therefore Unix specific bug
Changing version to 3.3.4 as most early reproducible and OS to Linux as more widely used.
PS: We should not forget retest it on MacOS X after bug will be fixed
