Description Regina Henschel 2014-03-04 06:09:11 UTC
Created attachment 95067 [details]
One slide with master slide, produced by PowerPoint 2010

The attached document was produced by PowerPoint 2010.
Open document and switch to master view.
Change the title font in the prototype to yellow.
Look at the "Title" presentation style in the Style&Formatting dialog. It has still Font Effect color "Automatic".
I see the same error with prototype "Subtitle". For prototype "Outline" it is OK.

The protoypes in master view need to be coupled to the styles, same as for .odp files produced by LibreOffice.

Comment 2 Joel Madero 2014-03-07 04:48:32 UTC
I think I may be misunderstanding this one. 
I opened the file, 
went to master view, 
went to slide 1,
highlighted title, 
did drop down for font color
selected yellow
opened styles dialog
right clicked on "title"
went to "font effects" tab

Everything matched up. Am I missing something?

Tested on:
Ubuntu 13.10 +
Windows 8.1

On opening the prototype text is yellow, but in style "title" it is not yellow. When you mark the characters in the prototype and assign e.g. red color, then the style shows red color, but the prototype text is still yellow. Same for border, the prototype has a yellow line, but the style not.

It works as expected in LibreOffice but not with a file produced by MS-PowerPoint-2010. I do not understand why you think that the bug is in LibreOffice. Please, could you explain?

Best regards. JBF
