Description Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2013-01-05 08:01:10 UTC
Created attachment 72528 [details]
Test Kit

"source_LO410.odp" in attachment contains shapes created following Help "Combining Objects and Constructing Shapes", what will become cruelly damaged when you save the document as .pptx. I did not test save as OOXML, but I believe the result will be the same.

When you save the document as "target_LO410_MSO2007.pptx", the "combined" shapes will get some damages, what you can see when you close the document and reopen it.
Every time you newly save the reopened .pptx (with an additional "_MSO2007" in file name) the result you see when close/reopen differs from the result before.

I do not think that this bug is a FILEOPEN problem. I compared view of created .pptx in LibO (also shown in PDF Exports) and MS PPT Viewer, no obvious differences!

"target_LO410_MSO2007.pptx"  can not be opened with PPT Viewer because of "Bug 59019 - FILESAVE .odp with non primitive custom shape produces invalid .pptx"

I did my tests with server installation of  " (Build ID: 6a393297ce6d99bbc4edefbf01ab9c5c6f0eff8) TinderBox: Win-x86@6, Branch:master, Time: 2013-01-04_01:06:01  - ENGLISH UI / German Locale  on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) with LO41 Masters User Profile.

I can confirm this behavior. Also the text is scaled down.

Ubuntu 12.10
LibreOffice Version (Build ID: 907050b4f479465c25249d58aa6f8297c306468)
Comment 3 Alexandr 2014-07-16 10:33:43 UTC
Reproducible with LibreOffice 3.5.4, 4.2.5 and on Debian x86_64. In LO 4.3.0 the situation is better: the problem is only with 4th slide (“Die rightclick → Shapes → Substract”).

Comment 5 Alexandr 2015-08-09 15:38:15 UTC
Reproducible with LibreOffice 4.4.5 and 5.0.0 on Debian Jessie. The figures in slides 4 and 5 are broken and gradients are displaced.
