Comment 5 Timur 2014-11-24 11:06:47 UTC
While background color of table is set to light blue on PPTX import in this example, it's set to dark blue on PPTX export.
Blue table export also happens in Bug 80340 with and Bug 48089 with if PPTX is saved first as PPTX.
Blue table export problem not reproducible if PPTX first saved as ODP and then as PPTX.
Tested with LO 4.4.0 alpha2. Export from 4.3 prevented by Bug 79731.

Miklos: thought you might be interested in this one.
I provided a bt/codepointer in my previous comment.
Comment 11 Timur 2015-05-11 14:10:55 UTC
Seems like fixed in LO 5.0.
Comment 12 Ofir 2015-05-13 06:40:31 UTC
The issue is not fixed.
I can reproduce the issue with LO build from 2015-05-13_02:00:37,
Ubuntu 14.04.
Comment 13 Timur 2015-05-13 07:42:24 UTC
You're right, background color of table set to light blue on PPTX import is not fixed, and that's the issue here.
(In reply to Timur from comment #5)

What's fixed in LO 5.0 is blue background on PPTX export.

screenshot 4.4.3 vs. 5.1.0

still present in LibO and LibO

Locale: en-US (it_IT)

as you can see in the screenshot now in 5.1.0 there's also a black border around the light blue background

so there's another additional bug in 5.1.0 master
Comment 15 tommy27 2015-06-14 07:43:58 UTC
I filed a separate report about the black border issue as Bug 92058
