Description Russell Almond 2012-11-15 23:44:53 UTC
Problem description: 
I opened and added some comments to a Powerpoint file sent by one of my students.  And saved the result as powerpoints.  The comments are now missing.

Steps to reproduce:
1. .... Open an existing Powerpoint document in PPTX format.
2. ....  Add a comment to one of the slides.
3. .... Save the document as a powerpoint.
4. .... Close Libre Office and reopen the document.

Current behavior:
Comments are not saved with the document and are not present when the document is opened.

Expected behavior:
Comments would be saved.

Platform (if different from the browser): 
Ubuntu 12.04
Browser: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:16.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/16.0

Thank you for submitting this bug.

Confirmed the bug with LO and LO on Ubuntu 12.04 x86_64.

When I look in the file the comment is saved. I am however not sure if it is saved correctly. At least it doesn't show up when loading the file again.
