pptx file with some font effects and screenshot of itself
Attached presentation contains:
1 slide: some text with font effects
2 slide: screenshot of first slide made in PP 2007 on Windows 7
Reproduced in 3.3.4 and 3.5.2 on Fedora 64 bit and Windows 7 32 bit
What is interesting: in PowerPoint text is without effects during editing. Effects appears only after we exit text frame.
[Reproducible] with "LibreOffice 220.127.116.11 (RC2) German UI/Locale [Build-ID: 235ab8a-3802056-4a8fed3-2d66ea8-e241b80] on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit). [Reproducible] with "LibreOffice 3.3.3 German UI/Locale [OOO330m19 (Build:301) tag libreoffice-18.104.22.168] on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit). Effect "Diagonal Squares" works fine (although I have a problem do understand direction "from right to bottom"), but Shadow, Relief (something like 3D) neither visible in Edit mode nor in SLIDESHOW.
Same in OOo 3.3, I believe problem is inherited from OOo.
My suspect: DUP of or related to "Bug 41180 - VIEWING: Wordart 3D and color effect missing when FILEOPEN particular pptx"
What do you think concerning my suspect?
Thanks for link
What about 3D effect: almost duplicate. Even if effects is different, on projector it is almost unseen difference.
What about 2D effect: it is completely different bug. There is shadow. And here is something like halo or fuzzy contour. This contour is very important because allows using font with any color on any background and text always readable.
What about module: there Calc, here Impress. I do not know if internals for font effects and import filters is the same for both or different.
Last 2 lines from previous comment are wrong. There pptx. Sorry
Not reproducible for me with reporter's sample and
parallel installation of Master "LOdev " 22.214.171.124.alpha0+ - WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) ENGLISH UI [Build ID: 3985521]" (tinderbox: W2008R2@16-minimal_build, pull time 2012-06-24)
with "LibreOffice 3.3.3 German UI/Locale [OOO330m19 (Build:301) tag libreoffice-126.96.36.199] on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit)
I have no idea what the 2D problem might be, effect is running more smoothly in PPT VIEWER, but I can't see a general difference.
Please explain more clearly and detailled! "There is shadow ...."?
- Where? LibO or PP?
- Where in the presentation?

screenshot of first slide in 3.6.b1 on Fedora 64 bit
On screenshot of msPowerPoint (placed on 2-th slide of first attachment) we see blue contour around characters. In Impress (second attachment) we see no such contour.
It is important because msPowerPoint's users often place text on background of the same colour. They counting on that fact that with contour this text will looking perfectly. But in Impress it not seen at all.
Build ID: own W7 debug build
Windows 7 Professional SP1 64 bit
No 3d effect, no glowing - just plain text.
NEW per comment 7.
Reproducible with LibreOffice 4.2.5 and 188.8.131.52 on Debian x86_64
