Contains pictures of bug and PowerPoint file.

Microsoft Powerpoint equation object displays with a box around it with an OLE graphic in the middle as in Figure 1 (see attachment file Pictures.pdf). The equation can be moved outside of the box, and the OLE box deleted as in figures 2 and 3. 

Steps to reproduce:
1. Download the attachment.
2. Unzip
3. Open Libreoffice Impress.
4. File->Open and browse for File.pptx
5. Go to slide 13.

Expected behavior:
The equation should look like Figure 4 in the Pictures.pdf file.

Also forgot to mention that my OS is Debian 7, Libreoffice is 64-bit, desktop environment is Mate.
Comment 2 Jorendc 2013-05-02 19:35:07 UTC
I can reproduce this behavior using Linux Mint 14 x64 with LibreOffice

@bug reporter: please report your bugs as UNCONFIRMED, not as NEW. Thanks in advance

Can anyone change this to unconfirmed? I can't seem to.

> Can anyone change this to unconfirmed? I can't seem to.

No need to, it's been confirmed on comment 2. I can confirm that behavior on LO (Win7 32bit)

Perhaps we still need more infos regarding how that equation object created. Is it embedded/grouped with the box or separated? (my suspect is separated)

Perhaps it's a general ole object problem which we can find in many bugs that have been reported?

I didn't make the slides, so I don't know how it was created. But it appears to be a single object when I open it in PowerPoint 2007.

** Please read this message in its entirety before responding **

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice (5.0.5 or 5.1.2 https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

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 the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a short comment that includes your version of LibreOffice and Operating System

Please DO NOT

- Update the version field
- Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
- Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not appropriate in this case)

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

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=libreoffice-qa

Seems to work fine for me with LibreOffice 5.1.2 on Debian 9.
