Take an Impress document.
Insert a shape, for example a rectangle.
Fill the shape with a gradient, for example "rectangular red/white".
Convert the shape to metafile.
Rotate the metafile by 45°
Notice, that the gradient is rotated too.
Now switch to presentation mode.
Notice, that the gradient is no longer rotated.
Some details to reproduce:
> Fill the shape with a gradient, for example "rectangular red/white".
By right clicking the rectangle > Area... > select "Gradients" tab > rectangular red/white > OK
> Convert the shape to metafile.
By right clicking the rectangle > Convert > To Metafile
> Rotate the metafile by 45°
By right clicking the rectangle > Position and Size... (the topmost menu) > Rotation tab > Angle: 45 > OK
