Description ravingdesi 2014-05-10 16:31:44 UTC
Problem description: 
Export of movement animations is working unrealiably. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, sometimes it only works if opened in office and then saved to pptx.

Attached is a file in which the movement animations are not preserved at all.

Furthermore: The automatic slidechange after the last animation does not occur either.

Thanks for considering.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/17406199/Bug4.ppt in impress. Click through the animations
2. Compare to result achieved in Powerpoint (I used powerpoint 2010 as my presentations always look screwed up when opened with 2013)

Current behavior:
No movements when ppt is opened in ms powerpoint (used 2010). They still work if opened with LO.

Expected behavior:
Proper export of movement animations, so they are properly understood by powerpoint

If of any interest, you can download the converted odp from https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/17406199/Bug4.odp

Operating System: Ubuntu
Version: release

Hello ravingdesi,

Thank you for filing the bug. I can confirm that the files are not playable correctly in Powerpoint after converting in 4.2.6, 4.3.3 and master.

Thought I'd rescue the file from Dropbox until it is too late.

Saved to ppt with LO on Windows 10.
Viewed in Powerpoint 2016 on Windows 10.
