Description Keith Curtis 2013-09-20 05:23:25 UTC
On this website are two files, a PPT and a PPTX:

http://pages.cs.wisc.edu/~driscoll/software/ooorg-pptx/index.html

Direct links
PPT:
http://pages.cs.wisc.edu/~driscoll/software/ooorg-pptx/01.%20introduction.ppt
PPTX:
http://pages.cs.wisc.edu/~driscoll/software/ooorg-pptx/01.introduction.pptx

The PPT imports fine, but the PPTX version is very broken as the text disappears from the shapes.

The one slide version
Comment 2 Michael Meeks 2013-09-20 09:06:51 UTC
Attaching a one-slide version; oddly the text in the right hand side box appears to be there almost underneath the shape ;-) - you can see it only when you select. Something rather odd here.

Original one-slide PPT and LibO-converted PPTX

tested under Windows 7 64 bit with LibO 4.1.4.2 

If I isolate a single PPT slide from the original PPT file in the 1st link at Comment 0 and I convert in PPTX I see no loss of text in the shapes... only bullets appear in the text outside shapes. see my attached zip.

If I download the PPTX from the 2nd link I see missing text inside shapes.

So I wonder which program was used to create that PPTX... does it shows correctly in MS PowerPoint?

now bullets are gone and the .pptx created by 4.2.3.3 looks exactly the same as the original .ppt   --> improvement

> If I download the PPTX from the 2nd link I see missing text inside shapes.

that file has indeed .pot extension, however when I load it in 4.2.3.3 the text is still hidden. saving as .pptx doesn't change anything.
saving it as .ppt causes loss of images.

sice this last part of the bug is still reproducible in 4.2.x I move this report to the mab4.2 list since 4.1.x reached end of life

Observation:

1. After import file in LO, Select shape by double tap and move shape from original position to different position.
2. You will able to see text inside shape, which is behind moved shape.
3. Shape gets duplicated while import and behind shape has a text.


Version: 4.5.0.0.alpha0+

retested with 5.3.4.2 and recent 6.0.0.0 alpha daily build.

PPTX attachment 86174 [details] is still incorrectly loaded by LibO with missing text in the shapes (which is oddly hidden underneath the shape as pointed out by Micheal Meeks in comment 2)

I confirm that there's no issue if the PPTX is created by LibO from the original PPT file (see attachment 93032 [details] )
