Description Luke 2013-07-26 10:31:41 UTC
This bug was tested LibreOffice v4.1 running in windows 7 and XP. It appears that LibreOffice loses formatting when importing MS .pptx files. I have attached an example.

Steps to reproduce the bug:
1. Open attached Contoso-Presentation.pptx document in Impress
2. Open attached Contoso-Presentation.pptx document in PowerPoint 2007/Office 365
3. Compare the documents. 

Note The "Sales", "CALCULATING PROFIT", and "Highest Revenue" are sized incorrectly resulting in them being displayed incorrectly.

Thanks!


In this attachment: look at the two vertical text boxes left and middle. And at the right one.

Thorsten: was it Lubos that could look at such issues?

bad fitting of text in textbox reproduced in LibO 3.3.3 too with attachment 83059 [details] 

updated version field to 3.3.3

I have no 3.3.0 available to test but is likely that this issues comes from the beginning of LibO era.

Issue with the text-box on second slide: Text is formatted in columns, which is not imported correctly.
Comment 20 Luke 2015-03-21 05:32:59 UTC
@Vinaya Mandke
Good catch. I have created Bug 90140 as a feature request to add textbox column support to Impress. 

This bug should only address the issue the PPTX importer creating over sized text boxs(or undersized text box margins).

Hi Vinaya,
I'm setting this ticket back to NEW as it has been inactive for more than 3
months.
Feel free to assign it back to you if you're still working on this.
Regards

Yes, and also: in MSO those are Century Gothic, in LO they are Century Gothic in Format-Character and Liberation Sans in Sidebar-Properties
Comment 27 Luke 2016-11-18 22:36:59 UTC
We already have a stacked text implementation that the chart application uses for axis labels. Could that be used here?
