Description Rui 2012-03-15 08:18:40 UTC
When playing a powerpoint ppsx file that has a loop directive Impress stops at a black screen with "press ESC to exit presentation" instead of looping to the first slide.

Comment 6 Jochen 2013-12-26 11:27:10 UTC
An user in de-user-ML has reported, that the bug exits also in LO 4.1.4. I have asked him to attach the document.
Comment 7 Andreas 2013-12-26 12:28:43 UTC
I am the user of de-user-ML, as Jochen wrote. I have installed version of LibreOffice. 

When I will open a ppsx-file it appears to me only the first slide of the presentation and unfortunately nothing more.

With the PowerPoint-Viewer a have no problems to look the presentation.

My ppsx-file is nearly 5 MB an if you want or need it, I will try to upload it as attachment.

Is a very nice Christmas animation deposited with moving images and music.

Best regards

Only import is handled; I don't plan to work on export - someone needs to do export part.
