Description ravingdesi 2014-04-20 19:35:28 UTC
Problem description: 
Some complex graphical objects are not shown correctly in presentation view and differ distinctly  from the preview. If converted to ppt and presented in powerpoint, it works correctly.
(I used LO, however selecting it above only gave the error "There is no version named ' rc' in the 'LibreOffice' product.")

Attached a sample file with a royalty free graphic and some screenshots.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Download file from (sorry attaching does not seem to work)
2. Open in Impress
3. Start presentation

Current behavior:
Presentation view shows it as

Expected behavior:
Preview shows it as
This is also the way it is shown when converted to ppt and presented in powerpoint.

I hope this report helps you to find the bug. Thank you very much.

Operating System: Ubuntu
Version: release
