Already [Reproducible] with reporter's sample and server Installation of "LibreOffice English UI/Locale [Build-ID: dc9775d-05ecbee-0851ad3-1586698-727bf66] on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit).

Still [Reproducible] with parallel installation of Master "LOdev   -  ENGLISH UI / German Locale  [Build ID: a2b3ee)]"  {tinderbox: @6, pull time 2012-11-13 06:07:28} on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) with separate /4 User Profile for Master Branch.

I do not know how that arrow head looks in MS Visio. My hypothesis: The arrow is imported and "somehow" shown as it should look, but during import the arrow head is not assigned to the best matching LibO "Arrow concave". This might be intended to show a drawing as faithful as possible, but of course such behavior might handicap further editing in LibO.

Thank you for your attention.

I think this one is for you, what do you think?

Confirmed with:
Build ID: 33224f4f11a05cfad2249e812fcc2975fbb61f6
Windows 7 Professional SP1 64 bit

Arrow displayed as in Visio, but arrow style format in LO is none.

If you have time, please do the following:

   Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice (4.4.2 or later)

   If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so: 1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3)

2. Test your bug 3. Leave a comment with your results. 4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to "inherited from OOo"; 4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add "regression" to keyword

Closing this bug, since it is impossible for the importer to populate the arrow styles. They are stored in a different place and importer cannot modify them. So, WONTFIX :(
