Description Pierre Martineau 2012-10-13 19:33:00 UTC

Circular arrow created in LibO

* Create a Circular Arrow in LibO
 - attached file "arrow_created_LibO.odp"
* Export as ppt (or pptx).
 - attached file "arrow_created_LibO.ppt"
* Open in LibO "arrow_created_LibO.ppt"
 - The head of the arrow is incorrectly displayed.

* Create the same Circular Arrow in PowerPoint (3003)
 - attached file "arrow_created_PPT2003.ppt"
* Open it in LibO
 - The arrow is correctly displayed
* Save it as ppt
 - attached file "arrow_created_PPT2003_saved_LibO.ppt"
* Open in LibO the newly created file
 - It is displayed correctly!

In summary, 
- when working with a MS PPT generated "Circular arrow", LibO is able to open/save the ppt file.
- when working with a LibO generated "Circular arrow", LibO can only save it as .odp but not as .ppt (or pptx).

The bug is still present in the last libreoffice version. Of note, export in pptx is a bit better but the arrow is still not identical to the original

It both affect ppt and pptx, but with differences
- ppt: the arrowhead is not correct
- pptx: the originally round arrow is oval after export

Comment 17 Regina Henschel 2021-01-11 18:54:27 UTC
My take would be to put all mso-shapes into a Gallery theme and fill the UI-lists with ooxml-preset shapes.

That way users would automatically use pptx compatible shapes. User who need compatibility with binary ppt can still get the shapes from the Gallery theme.
