ZIP file containing odp file and converted ppt and pptx files

An Impress presentation saved as PPTX format fails to open when using Office 2010.
 
Message says

"PowerPoint has found a problem with current <filename>. Powerpoint can attempt to repair the presentation"

The repair fails.

Saving as PPT format everything works correctly and the PowerPoint presentation runs in Office 2010 PowerPoint.

The presentation within the attached ZIP file contains a subset consisting of two slides from the presentation as PPTX bug.odp and two files generated by Impress, PPTX bug.ppt which is OK and PPTX bug.pptx which fails to open in Office 2010.

the first slide contains Tables
the second slide contains an animation

Environment:
ODP file created on a Vista Home edition 32 bit machine with LO 3.6.2.2 release

The PowerPoint 2010 attempting to open PPT and PPTX files is running on W7 enterprise 64 bit.

I have reproduced the same issue with Office 2013 and LibO Calc 4.2.2.1 (Win 7 x64).

Comment 3 jcs.LibreOffice 2015-05-02 17:34:13 UTC
Following a request to check the status of this bug I have updated Libre Office to the latest version 4.4.2.2. I also have the latest Microsoft Office available.

I have tested the odp, ppt and pptx files included in the bug report.

The odt and ppt files open correctly in both LO and Powerpoint and the animation on the second slide work

The pptx file does not open in either Libre Office or Power Point. The second slide does not have any animation. Powerpoint reports errors on opening and that some content has been removed.

In short  there is no change - the bug is still present.

PPTX saved with LO 4.4 then repaired with MSO 2013.pdf

With PPTX saved in LO 4.4 there was Repair in MSO 2013 that yielded document as attached, with data loss.

PPTX saved with LO 5.4+ then repaired with MSO 2013.pdf

With PPTX saved in current LO 5.3 or 5.4+ there is no footer data. 
There's still Repair in MSO 2013 that gives better document as attached, with smaller data loss, just footer.
So I'll rename this bug. 
I'm not sure if this is now a duplicate of Bug 97083.
Comment 7 Timur 2017-05-03 11:40:47 UTC
To reproduce: 
1. Open blank presentation in Impress
2. Insert - Header and Footer... fields (which are on Master slide). 
3. Save as PPTX and close. 
4. On PPTX reopen, there are no fields.
5. (optionally) open PPTX in MSO, there's Repair and also no fields.

Comment 9 Aron Budea 2018-07-19 04:10:50 UTC
Header/footer fields still don't get saved in LO 6.1.0.1, either.
I couldn't reproduce the corruption part, though, neither with 6.1.0.1, nor with 5.3.0.3. I used steps in comment 7.
Comment 10 Timur 2019-05-09 09:48:21 UTC
Repro 6.3+ with sample from attachment 72961 [details] or from scratch per comment 7. 
No repair in MSO 2016.
