click to edit master text styles shows up on the slides. it shouldn't be there.. plus minor formatting and margin errors do not work with imported text and pictures with the style.

Problem description: 
importing pptx files with master layouts that cannot be edited or deleted without using microsoft office.
Steps to reproduce:
1. import pptx file created on microsoft office 2010 or for mac.  slides appear with click to edit masterslide appears. 
2. current work around is to change the layout of the slides to blank in office for mac.. that is the only work around..
also you cannot delete master slides that were made on powerpoint for mac on libreoffice, you can only delete the ones you created on libreoffice.
i have explained this problem in more detail as ljelly:

Expected behavior:
no text showing on slides from master slide styles. 

Platform (if different from the browser):
Ubuntu and Mac Osx Snow Leopard.

It may also be a problem that the powerpoint file was a ppt, and it has been converted and saved as a pptx, from microsoft office 2010. 

secondly, there are also some formatting with the pptx and docx file format, that have irregularities with texts in textboxes and margins.

Comment 6 ljelly 2012-08-13 07:54:59 UTC
Powerpoints aren't small Test File is 17mb.. a small file where I could find where it occurred. doesn't happen in smaller powerpoints. between 4-10 mb. 

Comment 7 ljelly 2012-08-13 07:57:11 UTC
Converting Powerpoints worked in Microsoft Office 2013 BETA, on Windows 8 Consumer Preview.. They have good odp and compatibility settings with libreoffice.

pptx files that were having problems I saved in MO 2013 as a pptx.. opened them LO and they were having the same issue but not as many problems as the original files. 

Comment 8 ljelly 2012-08-13 07:58:19 UTC
files work perfectly now after being saved as odp in office 2013 beta, they open correctly in LO.
Comment 9 sasha.libreoffice 2012-08-13 08:04:07 UTC

Ubuntu one is dead. We need that file to retest (or original reporter can retest and report here). Set to NEEDINFO.
