Description Michal Svec 2014-03-27 12:06:12 UTC
Gradients in LO are limited only to two colors, that causes some
OOXML (pptx) files using finer gradients to be imported incorrectly.

Operating System: openSUSE
Version: 4.2.1.1 release

This shape has a gradient of 3 colors: red, green then blue. In Impress, it's blue, red, then blue.

Mark as duplicate of bug# 69654? (And change the title of that to describe the root cause, i.e. limitation in number of "gradient stops" (to use the OOXML terminology).)

I can confirm with LibreOffice 5.0.0.3, just slightly different:
- MSO is indeed red-gree-blue
- LO only has two-color gradient: red-green

Still confirmed.
